You might assume that residents of the upscale community of Westlake Village have access to every imaginable amenity, but it seems something is missing -- what they really, really crave is In-N-Out Burger.
This came up during planning discussions on The Shoppes at Westlake Village Center (which you know is going to be classy, because of the two "p"s.) Scheduled to open in July 2014 (near 101 freeway exit Lindero Canyon), the plaza will have more than 240,000 square feet of retail space, with half slated for a Target store.
"We've got some really cool restaurants coming in," broker Mike Tingus, president of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura office, said in a phone interview. It's too soon to name names, but he anticipates 15 to 25 dining options, most of them new to the area. He confirmed that one restaurant included in the community's wish list is the very popular Irvine-based burger chain.More »
