“Westfield Village” to Present 3.8 Million Square Foot Development Plan
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 by
year’s end, laying out plans for mitigating the effects of the
35million visitors the project is expected to draw each year – about
twice the number who flock to The Grove in Hollywood.
The three major components – The Village and the two
Westfield malls – will cover 3.8 million square feet, the developer has
said, so the complex will be bigger than South Coast Plaza in Orange
County 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.
