We continually improve our retail centers by adding the stores customers want to shop and creating an environment where they prefer to stay.
See how we strengthened retail in these communities.

The redevelopment is the second phase of the Westlake Village redevelopment. This redevelopment phase will integrate the high-quality designs and materials for façades and hardscape from Phase I to complete the strategic goal of integrating the three centers at Westlake Plaza into a single shopping experience. Specifically, the project will expand Gelson's into the adjacent endcap along with a full remodel of its storefront. The plan will also update the shop façades, gathering areas, walking paths, landscaping and parking lot lighting. Tenants will remain open during the redevelopment.
