Mall Owner Announces $35-Million Remodeling

May 12, 2000

WOODLAND HILLS — The owner of the Westfield Shoppingtown Promenade has announced plans for a $35-million remodeling of the mall.

Plans include a new facade, restaurants and entertainment venues, Richard Green, co-president of mall owner Westfield America, said Thursday.

One potential tenant is Jillian's, a 67,000-square-foot restaurant with billiards, electronic games and a 14-lane bowling alley.

The Kentucky-based company has signed a lease, but the company must get a variance from the city of Los Angeles to sell alcohol and offer dancing. A hearing on the variance is scheduled for May 25.

Green said the company hopes to begin construction by early summer and finish by spring 2001. The mall will remain open during construction.

"The history of the Promenade has been a high-end center that didn't function correctly," Green said.
