Indoor malls continue their transformation. Los Angelenos need to only look as far as Manhattan Beach to see this retail trend in action.
Traditional indoor mall Manhattan Village is undergoing a $180 million renovation that will not only revamp the current property, but will add a significant outdoor component to take advantage of the Southern California weather and lifestyle.
The center is adding new dining options like Urban Plates, reopening known favorites like California Pizza Kitchen, and sprinkling in internet-resistant services like MAC cosmetics and Holly and Hudson Nail Lounge. Ashlyn Booth, senior vice president of retail marketing for JLL, believes a focus on the outdoors and services that will bring both local South Bay residents and tourists together will create a place worth visiting again and again.
