British fashion chain Topshop is coming to Los Angeles. The retailer is slated to open its fourth American store at the Grove shopping center in L.A.'s Fairfax district by the holiday season. The chain, which makes cheap-chic clothes much like competitors Forever 21 and H&M, will take over a 25,000-square-foot location currently occupied by Banana Republic, which is moving to a smaller space in the outdoor shopping mall. Rick Caruso, the real estate developer behind local shopping malls such as the Grove and the Americana at Brand, said he had been in talks with Topshop owner Sir Philip Green for the last two years and had campaigned for a Los Angeles location.

The Glendale City Council is siding with Los Angeles developer Rick Caruso in his effort to expand the Americana at Brand shopping center. Acting as the city's redevelopment agency, the council Tuesday approved a plan to push the mall's neighboring property owners to negotiate the sale of their buildings to Caruso or work up their own plans for the intersection of Colorado and Orange streets. The owners of a hotel and vacant building next to the Americana will have 45 days to negotiate a sales price with Caruso, submit their own plans for redevelopment or face possible eminent domain proceedings.

Austin Beutner, the wealthy former investment banker who struggled to gain traction in his yearlong campaign for Los Angeles mayor, dropped out of the race Tuesday. In an email to supporters, Beutner said he wants to spend more time with his wife and four young children. And in an unusual move, he pledged to pay back every person who contributed to his campaign. His exit comes after months of fundraising struggles, churn among his campaign staff and a recent poll that showed him capturing a dismal 2% of the likely vote in next year's election to replace Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who will be termed out. Beutner says money wasn't a factor in his decision, and said he had been prepared to pump his personal wealth into the campaign to accrue name recognition.

In a 4-0 vote Tueday, the Glendale City Council chose Rick Caruso to build the city's long-stalled Town Center project--a 13-acre outdoor urban neighborhood featuring offices, restaurants and retail stores. Caruso, who beat out veteran Los Angeles-based developer Jerry Snyder, takes over a project that has been on the drawing board for 15 years but was never built because of changes in the design plan and developers.

The City Council in a 6-4 vote narrowly confirmed the controversial reappointment Thursday of Department of Water and Power board President Rick Caruso. The appointment was opposed by City Councilman Hal Bernson and environmentalists who are unhappy about Caruso's stand on preservation of the Chatsworth Reservoir, a dry DWP reservoir that has become an unofficial wildlife refuge. Caruso, a prominent developer, has said he wants to consider other uses for the property, particularly soccer fields.

Re "Old-World Charm Is Developer's Magic Touch," Jan. 16. Me and Pa were dee-lighted to read about how lucky we are to live in a community that is "suave" and upscale. Yup, we country folk here in Thousand Oaks are mighty lucky to be able to shop and eat European grub at the likes of Promenade and, by year's end, take in a movie at Dee-scovery Park. Yup, developer Rick Caruso has the finest establishments in the Conejo Valley. And just think: When Dee-scovery Park is done, we taxpayers will have paid only $12.5 million and guaranteed him only a 12% profit.
