Westfield celebrated the renovation of its Century City location with an evening of cocktails, dancing, and performances by some of LA’s top artists including multi-platinum band DNCE and iconic 70’s band Village People. Media events kicked off with a press conference with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Westfield Co-CEO Peter Lowy, and continued with a red carpet event featuring celebrities including will.i.am, Debbie Allen, Metta World Peace, and many more!
The $1 billion modernization and beautification of Westfield Century City, located in Los Angeles, is an open-air shopping destination designed by Westfield’s own in-house studio in collaboration with acclaimed L.A. based designer Kelly Wearstler. The 1.3 million square foot destination encompasses a curated collection of more than 200 shops and restaurants, including a new three-level Nordstrom featuring its latest design concepts, completely remodeled three-level Bloomingdale’s, modern new two-level Macy’s, luxurious Equinox fitness club and spa, as well as the West Coast’s first Eataly.
The grand opening event was a partnership with the Infinite Hero Foundation. The foundation helps combat the most difficult frontline issues, both mental and physical, that face returning military heroes and their families and funds programs that drive innovation and the accessibility of effective treatments dealing with service-related mental and physical injuries. The partnership with Infinite Hero fits more broadly within the Westfield Veterans Initiative, which was launched in 2015.
