Approval of the Manhattan Village Mall Expansion Project

Manhattan Beach, CA (December 3, 2014) – After almost nine years, extensive community input and thoughtful open discussion, the Manhattan Beach City Council approved, in a 3-2 vote, the Manhattan Village Mall Expansion Project at their December 2, 2014 Council meeting.  The City Council approved an option which included approval of Phases 1 and 2, and deferred Phase 3 (Fry’s corner) for future public review and input.

Phase 1, 50,000 square feet, is comprised of the Village Shops surrounding the California Pizza Kitchen building.
Phase 2, 60,000 square feet, includes the consolidation and expansion of Macy’s.  Additional conditions added by the City Council included the following:

  • Maintaining the Phase 1 North Parking Structure as ground plus 2 levels of parking (G + 2), with level 2 setback 90 feet;
  • Installing interim landscaping and signage at Sepulveda and Rosecrans;
  • Installing 30 additional parking spaces adjacent to 3500 Sepulveda in the culvert with pedestrian access leading directly to 3500 Sepulveda; and
  • Providing a right turn/deceleration lane from Sepulveda at 33rd Street, into the Mall

As a next step, the City will be working closely with the developer and property owners on a schedule for construction of the project. Below is a depiction of the Village Shops outdoor plaza area.  For more information please visit the City’s website.
