Westfield Corp. has announced a slate of more than 20 new retailers and restaurants that will begin operations by this fall at its Westfield UTC mall in San Diego, as the company nears completion of a $600 million renovation and expansion of the property.
A company statement said several retailers will be opening their first stores in the San Diego market, including clothing sellers Vineyard Vines, Marine Layer, Rodd & Gunn, UntuckIt and SuitSupply. Fragrance seller Jo Malone London will open its first local stand-alone boutique.
CJ Charles, a boutique selling jewelry and watches, will be opening its second San Diego store. The tenant roster will also include skin care and cosmetics retailers Origins, Saje Natural Wellness and MAC Cosmetics.
Also coming to Westfield UTC are jewelry and accessories retailers Fossil, Kendra Scott, Swarovski and Sundance, along with footwear brand Ecco.
Arhaus, which sells luxury hand-crafted furniture, will join a number of other upscale furnishings and housewares retailers already at the mall, including Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn and Pirch. Room & Board plans to open its previously announced new store in late summer of this year.
New restaurant arrivals will include Larsen’s Steakhouse, bistro-style restaurant Bazille, and San Diego-based Napizza. Other major changes include a mall addition that will house a relocated Nordstom, which will be opening in early October, along with 15,000 square feet of other retail elements.
The mall, which opened in 1977 off La Jolla Village Drive near Interstate 805, is getting new plazas, event spaces, water features, a valet arrival lounge, a five-level parking structure and a total of more than 250,000 square feet of new retail space.
