Del Amo Fashion Center

Torrance, California

Opened in 1961, Del Amo Fashion Center is the largest shopping center in Southern California, and serves the affluent beach communities in the South Bay region of Los Angeles. With 2.5 million square feet of leasable space spread across 130 acres, it features anchor stores such as Macy’s, H&M, J.C. Penney and Sears. Other major retailers include Crate & Barrel, Coach and Anthropologie. An 18-screen AMC Theatres multiplex and a Lucky Strike Lanes bowling alley top the array of popular dining and entertainment choices.

As Del Amo Fashion Center’s owners continue to anticipate the changing tastes of consumers, 5+design has been commissioned to remodel the northern portion of the mall. The renovation is part of a multiyear, multimillion-dollar plan to reimagine the 52-year-old shopping and leisure destination so that it better reflects today’s more casual indoor-outdoor lifestyle in Southern California. The revamp, expected to be completed in 2015, will welcome Nordstrom and other fine retailers to the mall’s roster of upscale stores, and transform the food court and other public areas with inviting open-air terraces, glass-topped atriums, varied seating options and luxuriant greenery.
