Santa Monica Place Reopened on Friday

After two years and $265 million, Santa Monica Place reopened Friday with thousands of shoppers pouring in to get a first look at the newly remodeled shopping center.

The airy design of the new 524,000-square-foot mall features floor-to-ceiling glass walls in some sections, an upscale tenant lineup that includes new anchors Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom, and a third floor dedicated to an array of food options. Previously an enclosed, fortress-like structure designed more than three decades ago by architect Frank Gehry, Santa Monica Place has been converted to a three-story, open-air shopping center with views of the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica Mountains and Santa Monica Pier.

And don't forget to take a look at The Mannequin Collective, on display through August 22.

USC Plans $900-million Shopping and Residential Upgrade

 USC says it wants what many other big city universities have: an attractive, lively place next to campus for students and faculty to shop, dine, watch movies and just hang out.

In what is described as the most ambitious construction project in South Los Angeles in a generation, the university plans to replace an outdated shopping center with a retail, cinema and hotel complex that would also include dorms for about 5,000 students.

It is being designed in USC's signature Mediterranean style by the Boston-based architecture firm Elkus Manfredi, which worked on the Grove and the Americana outdoor malls in Los Angeles and Glendale, and on campus buildings at Harvard University and other schools.

Tommy Bahama by Standard Architects

When the new Tommy Bahama store opens in Laguna Beach, CA, shoppers will be able to enjoy their lunch or drink at the bar without taking their eyes off the merchandise. The space, designed by Standard Architects, will separate its 6,000-square-foot floor plan right down the middle, with a clothing section on one side and a restaurant on the other. Modular clothing displays framed by louvered panels will showcase the tropica-inspired resort wear, while an open kitchen will lend a casual feel to the restaurant as well. Located steps from the beach in the historic Heisler Building, the new venture will be serving up fashion and food this fall.
