ARCADIA, CA-The newly opened $113 million expansion of Westfield Shoppingtown Santa Anita has brought Southern California its first “Hy-Style” center, a combination of enclosed and open air malls that is Westfield’s answer to the continuing movement toward hybrid malls. The 250,000-sf Hy-Style expansion brings the total space to approximately 1.3 million sf at the 30-year-old center, which is next to the Santa Anita racetrack at Baldwin Avenue and Huntington Drive. The new space, which opened Oct. 1, adds a 16-screen AMC Theater complex, 30 new specialty stores including a Sport Chalet, Border Books Music Café, and the first Los Angeles County location of Dave & Buster’s. Other additions at the expansion include a new 12,000-sf food court with sit-down restaurants including Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill, Bacchus Wine & Champagne Bistro and McGrath’s Fish House. The 250,000 sf of new space at the center features an outdoor restaurant plaza, a skylight-atrium over the new food court and a new retail wing, with seating for both indoor and outdoor dining.

The Santa Anita expansion is only the second Hy-Style center to open thus far in California, following the Oakridge Mall in San Jose, which added a new wing, more than 70 new retailers and approximately 300,000 sf of new space. The Santa Anita and Oakridge properties are among only a few Hy-Styles in the country to be completed, although Westfield has a number of others either in planning or under consideration and says that all of its proposed projects over the next three years will incorporate the Hy-Style approach.

The new shops and restaurants at the Santa Anita center join a mix of 151 specialty stores, four department stores, and a food court with 11 eateries at the original mall, which Hahn Development built in 1974 and Westfield acquired in 1998.
