Business Spotlight: Los Cerritos Center Los Cerritos Center has been a cornerstone in the City of Cerritos since its opening in 1971. Owned and operated by the partnership of Macerich in partnership with the Cadillac Fairview Corporation, the center has experienced tremendous success over the years. Since opening in 1971, the Center has undergone four major renovations and additions. The most recent phase of development, completed earlier this year, encompassed the construction of a new 139,000-square-foot Nordstrom along with the addition of a 36,500-square-foot wing to the mall, featuring Apple, M.A.C. Cosmetics, True Religion Brand Jeans and more. Senior Property Manager Ken Kraus said: “Los Cerritos Center has had an exciting year with an expansion of the center, two new department stores, and great new tenants. Our recent success is a direct result of the incredible partnership with the City of Cerritos. We are so fortunate to be based in a community that believes in providing outstanding services to their businesses and a tremendous quality of lifestyle to their residents.” Los Cerritos Center is located on the west side of Gridley Road between South Street and 183rd Street, adjacent to the 605 freeway.

Kia of Cerritos now open Kia of Cerritos recently opened at 18201 Studebaker Road in the Cerritos Auto Square. The 4.74-acre parcel includes the twostory automobile dealership with a total building area of 58,863 square feet. The dealership is the largest Kia store in the United States. The dealership will generate an estimated additional $14 million of revenue for the City/Redevelopment Agency through the generation of rent and sales tax over the 15-year lifetime of the lease. When fully staffed, the dealership is anticipated to provide the community with 95 jobs. Fifty-seven jobs were preserved from the recent closure of the Cerritos Saturn dealership, and an additional 28 jobs were created to accommodate the larger facility. Within two years, 10 additional jobs will be added.
