TARZANA, CA-The 43,000-sf first phase of an upscale retail center called Village Walk that is being developed by Pacific Equity Properties has finished construction in this San Fernando Valley community, according to Gafcon Inc., construction management firm on the project. Individual tenant improvement work is now under way at the new center, which is located at 18660-18728 Ventura Blvd. and is owned by the Village at Tarzana LP.

Santa Monica-based Pacific Equity Properties retained Gafcon in 2005 to provide construction management for the project, which involved demolition of an existing movie theater on the site and the construction of a new two-story, steel-framed building with 11 spaces for retail and restaurant use. The Gafcon team for phase one includes Robin Duveen, Los Angeles division manager, with W.E. O’Neil Construction Co. of California as general contractor and Gruen Associates as architect.

Gafcon has also been retained for phase two of the project, which will add 286,000 sf across the street that will include retail and restaurant use as well as the construction of an underground parking structure and townhomes. The second phase will be anchored by a Whole Foods Market.
