History[edit]

La Encantada began in planning stages in early 1998. With the successful Kierland Commons in Scottsdale, Arizona as an example, Westcor hoped to recreate the same success in Tucson.[1][2]

The center was designed with a Spanish, hacienda style and construction began in 2002. By 2003, more than 80% of the center was leased.

The first phase opened with AJ's Fine Foods, Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, Apple Store, Coach, Cole Haan, Crate & Barrel, Lucky Brand Jeans, and Pottery Barn.

Phase II established the center as the premiere shopping destination in Tucson, landing a score of first luxury stores for the region. BCBG Max Azria, Brooks Brothers, Brooks Brothers Country Club, Louis Vuitton, Sigrid Olsen, St. John, and Tiffany & Co.
