Wednesday evening, the Westfield Group will be presenting its plans for the "Village of Westfield Toanga," a mixed-use, non-residential development located between the Westfield Topanga Mall and the Westfield Promenade Mall in Woodland Hills.  The Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Council meeting will begin at 6 P.M. at Woodland Academy.

Tenants for the mega-project haven't been announced, but we do know one thing.  The Village is going to be big.  Combined with the malls that malls that will border The Village on its east and west sides Westfield will control 3.8 million square feet of developed property.  The Daily News reports:

An environmental impact report is expected byyear's end, laying out plans for mitigating the effects of the35million visitors the project is expected to draw each year - abouttwice the number who flock to The Grove in Hollywood.

The three major components - The Village and the twoWestfield malls - will cover 3.8 million square feet, the developer hassaid, so the complex will be bigger than South Coast Plaza in OrangeCounty or Del Amo Fashion Centerin Torrance.

Seeking to avoid the sprawling effects such projects have been known to bring in other areas, the Neighborhood Council has been actively bringing in experts and visionaries to help the community plan for its needs and desires for the roads surrounding the complex and moving into the community.
