Santa Monica Place Opens Summer 2010


Shopping Centers:


There's excitement in the air in the city that loves to shop. Santa Monica is a shopper's paradise and it keeps getting better. When a tired indoor mall and one of the prime pieces of land in downtown Santa Monica needed energizing, the world class, locally based Macerich company met the challenge of creating an outdoor mall with plenty of great shopping and dining to satisfy even the pickiest movie celebs. The urban beach experience is a major design focus of the approximately 550,000 square-foot, new Santa Monica Place, located just two blocks from the beach and right next to the popular Third Street Promenade.


Coming to Santa Monica Place are Hugo Boss, Juicy Couture, 7 For All Mankind, AllSaints Spitalfields, Eva Varro and Solstice Sunglass Boutique. Located on the first level will be Hugo Boss, with 2,751 square feet; Juicy Couture, with 3,078 square feet; 7 For All Mankind, with 2,270 square feet; and AllSaints Spitalfields, with 4,782 square feet. New for the second level are Eva Varro, with 1,075 square feet, and Solstice Sunglass Boutique, with 888 square feet.

Anne Singleton, vice president of leasing for Macerich has been excited about how things are shaping up. New to the Santa Monica Place line-up are: Hugo Boss, specializing in beautifully tailored men’s clothing and accessories; Juicy Couture, which features fun, fabulous clothing and accessories for women and girls; 7 For All Mankind, a leader in premium denim and accessories; AllSaints Spitalfields, the fast-growing, fashion-forward British clothing and accessories brand; Solstice Sunglass Boutique, a headquarters for designer brand sunglasses; and Eva Varro, a local Southern California designer, whose fashions for women are currently available in select department stores and boutiques. This will be the first Eva Varro boutique.

In addition to Bloomingdale’s, which selected Santa Monica Place as the site for its first SoHo concept store outside Manhattan, and a new Nordstrom, other retailers signed on for the project include Burberry, Kitson, Nike, CB2, Michael Kors, Ted Baker, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Coach, Ed Hardy, True Religion, Joe’s Jeans, Swarovski, Love Culture, Angl, Bernini, Michael Brandon and Arthur, as well as Artevo, a technology-driven art gallery.

An important element of the new Santa Monica Place is the rooftop Dining Deck, which will offer ocean views and a carefully selected set of chef-driven restaurants and quick-casual dining options. Already announced restaurants include two concepts from nationally recognized restaurateur Richard Sandoval, Zengo and La Sandia, plus Pizza Antica, Ozumo Sushi, and XINO Restaurant + Lounge.

Dining Deck includes: Charlie Kabob; Chick n’ Ribs; Fatburger; Manchu Wok; Pinches Tacos; Sarku Japan; Stefano’s Pizza; Sushi Itto; and Wetzel’s Pretzels. The indoor-outdoor, fast-casual component of the Dining Deck is made up of  nearly 17,000 square feet in a modern design dominated by extensive glass and open views.

Santa Monica Place’s parent company, Macerich, is headquartered in Santa Monica and is a fully integrated self-managed and self-administered real estate investment trust, which focuses on the acquisition, leasing, management, development and redevelopment of regional malls throughout the United States.
