MORE THINGS TO MORE PEOPLE

REIMAGINING TOP RETAIL DESTINATIONS By Kate Birchler, Assistant Vice President, Tourism Marketing, Macerich Shopping Centers & Fashion Outlets

Scottsdale Fashion Square

S

hoppers today want it all. They want stores that are relevant to them with fresh merchandise and exciting experiences built in, along with great service. They want emerging concepts, destination restaurants, more and better entertainment and fabulous visuals that make for one-of-a-kind Instagrammable moments. This is true for locals and it’s absolutely true for visitors, who make shopping + dining + entertainment a key part of their travels. Macerich, with a portfolio that includes some of the country’s best properties in the best markets, is on the cutting edge when it comes to reimagining retail centers in visitor-focused markets. One top example is Scottsdale Fashion Square, the overwhelmingly dominant luxury retail property in sunny, sexy Arizona. This past fall, Scottsdale Fashion Square unveiled its new luxury wing with a refined collection of extraordinary luxury amenities and stores. This includes Arizona’s first Saint Laurent, among more than 40 of the finest global names such as Gucci, Cartier, Bottega Veneta, Bulgari, Hublot, Prada and more. In addition, a brand new Apple flagship, six new soon-to-open upscale dining options – including the new Nobu – and fitness brand Equinox locations make this an inspired, much-more-than-retail destination. Next, the property will add Caesars Republic Scottsdale, the first non-gaming, fourstar hotel from the famed Caesars Entertainment brand. Just in time for summer, Macerich’s award-winning Santa Monica Place in California – the all-outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment destination just blocks from the beach – will introduce a brand new, larger location for LA’s only children’s museum, the Cayton Children’s Museum by ShareWell. Santa Monica Place pleases palates with great restaurants for everyone, from Santa Monica Place

Macerich_US.indd 3

True Food Kitchen to Sonoma Wine Garden, plus Gourmandise, a handson cooking school. Of course, its top retail attractions range from Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom to Barneys New York, Louis Vuitton and a host of creative, emerging brands including Tyra Banks’s Modelland, a first-of-its-kind experiential attraction opening in 2019. Santa Monica Place is always reimagining its signature West Coast experience. Also upcoming this fall is the opening of a major new visitorfocused reinvention: Fashion District Philadelphia. This four-level retail, dining and entertainment hub spans over 800,000 square feet across three city blocks in the heart of downtown Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. Noteworthy entertainment offerings include the market’s first City Winery, plus Round1 and AMC Theatres, which join a host of other inviting restaurants and retailers to create an exciting, urban mix. Not only do great properties in great visitor markets continue to open brand new, must-see stores, but the best are chock full of fresh experiences. There’s more entertainment and destination dining, as well as surprising amenities, and they all come together to offer today’s discerning travelers what they really want: everything.

“Unrivaled.” That is how the team at Triple Five Worldwide, owners of Mall of America and West Edmonton Mall, describe its latest entertainment and retail destination, American Dream. By taking best practices learned across its portfolio and fusing them with a fresh perspective, American Dream, located less than five miles from Manhattan, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, adjacent to the Meadowlands Sports Complex, combines worldclass retail, entertainment, destination dining and the latest in technology into a one-of-a-kind, must-see, new customer experience.

creating something completely new and dynamic that has never been done before and we are doing it in one of the world’s most incredible markets. American Dream is a curated and thoughtfully designed blend of new-to-market retail, unprecedented entertainment, attractions, world-class dining and culinary experiences, artfully presented in an architecturally exciting and elegant environment like no other. Nothing exists on this scale, with this mix and presentation in this market— the pre-eminent global gateway to the world. We will draw 40 million visitors annually from the local and northeast region, domestically and internationally.”

Don Ghermezian, President & CEO of American Dream, said, “We are

American Dream will draw on a diverse and broad consumer

demographic located in a greater NY-NJ metro market area that generates more than $136 billion in sales annually. The property’s close proximity and direct connections to New York City, comprised of over 20 million residents and hosting over 65 million annual visitors, is one of the key attributes that make this property able to claim 40 million annual visitors with a tourist draw projected at 50%. A major point of distinction for American Dream lies in the tenant mix with 55 percent entertainment attractions and 45 percent retail. Set to open in stages this year, American Dream includes three major indoor entertainment attractions, over 450 tenants and a dozen other attractions—far eclipsing

the original concept, and with few peers, if any, in the changing U.S. retail real estate market.

Taubman’s $500 Million Reimagination of Iconic Beverly Center Reinvents Retail & Dining in LA

American Dream’s scope owes to a vision to have the property operate year-round. It includes an indoor ski park, with a 16-story, 800-foot-long ski slope; an enclosed Nickelodeonthemed amusement park with two Gerstlauer roller coasters, one with the world’s steepest vertical drop at 121.5 degrees, among 24 rides and attractions; and a glass-domed DreamWorks-themed water park with a 1.5-acre wave pool and 35 slides.

Taubman Centers, Inc. has completed its highly anticipated $500 million reimagination of Beverly Center that transformed every aspect of the iconic shopping destination, located in the heart of Los Angeles for 36 years. Expanded luxury and contemporary fashion, destination dining, studio/concierge services, sweeping views and bright, open spaces are just a few of the center’s new features.

Then there’s the retail zone, a massive assembly of shops, including highend luxury and fashion brands in a dedicated environment called “The Collections” section, anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York, that is more than 80% leased. More attractions dot the property: an experiential theme that will feature a 35,000 sq. ft. Legoland; a 300-foot-tall observation wheel with 26 climate-controlled gondolas to view New York City; a 35,000 sq. ft. Merlin Entertainment-run Sea Life Aquarium; a NHL regulation-size ice-skating rink; an 80,000 sq. ft. Kidzania role-playing venue; a 1,400seat Cinimex luxury movie theater and other interactive stores. There are also more than 100 dining options, another 22,000 parking spaces from the adjacent sports complex, with a future 800-room hotel all filling out the development’s resort-like feel.

“Beverly Center has a special place in the history of this creative community, and our intention with this transformation was always to ensure the center best reflects and serves both its neighbors and those who visit Los Angeles each year,” said Chief Operating Officer William S. Taubman. “We sincerely thank our many partners who have joined us in creating this true homage to fashion and food in one of the most vibrant and exciting markets in the world.” Key focus areas for the project included creating a bright, contemporary exterior that connected the center to the neighborhood, bringing in plenty of natural light, further elevating the retail lineup, adding a variety of dining options and ensuring easy access and parking. Beverly Center was open during all three phases of construction.

Perfectly Curated Retail Beverly Center’s newly elevated retail offering crosses every price level and fashion profile, perfect for the cross-shopping practices of modern customers. With LA’s largest collection of shops and restaurants under one magnificent skylight, the new Beverly Center reflects the diverse styles and tastes of Los Angeles and its many visitors. An unparalleled collection of luxury, contemporary and fast-fashion brands awaits shoppers, including Apple, Balenciaga, Coach, COS, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, G-Star Raw, Gucci, H&M, If & Co., Longchamp, Louis Vuitton, Maje, MCM, Michael Kors, Omega, Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada, Saint Laurent, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sandro, Superdry, The Celect, Tiffany & Co., Traffic Los Angeles, Uniqlo, Versace, Wolford, Zara and more. An unmatched restaurant collection includes fine-dining options Cal Mare, Farmhouse and Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, and fast-casual eateries Eggslut, Easy’s, Tocaya Organica, LAMILL Coffee, Maragume Udon and Pitchoun Bakery & Cafe. More great additions, including The Webster, are coming soon.

ere, in this little corner of the American South, where European traditions blend with Caribbean influences, the history is as colorful as the local architecture and the food is the stuff of legend.

The street names are French and Spanish, the Creole architecture comes in a carnival of tropical colors and the voodoo is a Caribbean import. The magic of New Orleans is irresistible. A cultural gumbo, we celebrate our differences. In fact, we celebrate almost anything in the Big Easy and have a saying: LAISSEZ LE BONS TEMPS ROULER— LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL. A reminder of New Orleans’ French heritage, a way of life that began three centuries ago and remains today. From the French Quarter to Magazine Street, New Orleans offers an array of retail choices. Options include hundreds of boutiques, art galleries, shopping centers, outlet malls and antique stores throughout the city. With numerous art galleries and antique shops, Royal Street in the French Quarter is the perfect place to find a rare relic or New Orleans souvenir.

utilizes techniques and materials that reference the French history and craftsmanship of Louis Vuitton, while carefully integrating ultra-modern designs into the California store such as the twisting high tech carbon fiber shelving throughout which references the horizontal speed of travel. “If there’s a glimpse of what the future could hold for luxury boutiques, the newly redesigned Louis Vuitton is it,” said Debra Gunn Downing, spokeswoman for South Coast Plaza. “From the site-specific art to exclusive merchandise, the company has created an immersive shopping and cultural experience that cannot be found online—a brilliant move.” Throughout the double story space there are references to the context, climate and culture of Southern California. The store sparkles as the completely new facade is made of laminated glass and shimmering copper while the inside is a light, bright, modern and airy space, featuring three entirely new skylights carved into the ceiling, flooding the store with daylight from above. Louis Vuitton Costa Mesa South Coast Plaza exemplifies how art is integral to Marino’s design process, with a range of artworks and cultural elements selected and designed specifically for the Costa Mesa store. “We always work to select artwork that represents different countries and continents. Louis Vuitton is a

very forward thinking company when it comes to its engagement with the art world and thinks globally. The choice of the artwork, which was driven by a desire to echo and play off the architecture and the immediate context, link to Louis Vuitton’s heritage and the climate and culture of Southern California,” notes Peter Marino.
