LOS ANGELES, CA - March 10, 2021- Manhattan Village, located in the heart of Manhattan Beach, will welcome an exciting collection of dining, lifestyle, and retail establishments this year as it completes its major redevelopment project. Contemporary lifestyle and clothing retailers Faherty, Anthropologie, and Urban Outfitters will all open their doors at the newly reimagined center, catering to the stylish consumer looking for an elevated shopping experience.  In addition, gorjana, the Laguna Beach-based Californian jewelry company will complement the fashion line-up.

The new eateries will include fast-casual options with Malibu-founded and celebrity favorite, SunLife Organics, and fresh desserts, made daily with Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt. Guests looking for a unique, unforgettable culinary experience will find BOA Steakhouse and Sushi Roku, both opening in side-by-side seductively stylish interior/exterior design spaces and offering dry-aged prime steak and contemporary sushi, respectively. Also joining the best in class restaurants and dining options is quintessential American hamburger restaurant, Smashburger, and Silverlake Ramen, a wildly popular Los Angeles-based Japanese ramen bar.

This announcement comes after several new tenant additions to the $250 million redevelopment and large expansion project which began two years ago under the management of JLL. The curated, mixed open-air and enclosed experience space enticed a strong tenant mix, including the previously announced additions of JOEY Manhattan Beach, Vans, Mercado, CorePower Yoga, sweetgreen, Coreology Fitness Studios, Cyclebar, Dan Modern Chinese, Edo Bites, and Sidecar Doughnuts.

“We have been working on transforming Manhattan Village into a lifestyle center that offers something for everyone in the heart of the South Bay,” said Don Ziss, General Manager of Manhattan Village. “We could not be more pleased to welcome these renowned establishments and think the local community will be equally thrilled.”

The center’s new design mimics the outdoor lifestyle of Los Angeles’ South Bay, with enhanced walkways and an open-air plaza, created as a green space for people to gather, socialize and experience sophisticated coastal living at its best. Al fresco dining will also be a major allure as new and existing restaurant tenants offer new outdoor patio seating.  Slated for full completion this year, the new Manhattan Village will be a 648,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor dining and shopping experience introducing modern luxury and coastal-chic true to the neighboring area, while embracing the allure and hometown feel of the West Coast lifestyle.

“We are bringing the best of LA to Manhattan Beach – high profile dining, fashion, beauty and even boutique fitness to complement our existing strong retail mix that includes such tenants as Apple, Sephora, Vans and Williams Sonoma,” said Kristin Grove, Vice President of National Retail Leasing with JLL.
