Westlake Shopping Center is an outdoor shopping mall in Daly City, California, USA. It is anchored by Burlington Coat Factory, Home Depot, Ross, Safeway, T.J. Maxx, and Walgreens.

History[edit]

Early years[edit]

Westlake Shopping Center was originally known as Westlake Town and County Shopping Center. It had its groundbreaking in 1948, making it one of the earliest malls in America. It was also the first community shopping center in the Bay Area. Its open-air pedestrian promenades allowed the center to be used for outdoor concerts, art shows, fairs, dances, and other community events for many years.[1] Westlake was built by Westlake Development Company, who sold the mall to Kimco on October 22, 2002.[2]

Renovation[edit]

Phase I[edit]

Westlake is currently undergoing a renovation. A Home Depot store was constructed on the site of the old J.C. Penney. In addition, a Cost Plus World Market opened in a brand new building in the center of the mall. Phase I involved relocation and enlargement of the existing Trader Joe’s. Phase I will involve demolition of 173,032 square feet (16,075.2 m2) of retail space, construction of approximately 194,419 sq ft (18,062 m2) of new retail development, and the removal of 96 parking spaces, resulting in 21,387 sq ft (1,987 m2) of net new development and a 5 percent reduction of parking stalls.[3] The old J.C. Penney was torn down and replaced by Home Depot. The mall's decor was modified to give the mall’s center strip a Main Street look.[4]

Phase II[edit]

Phase II involves construction of 96,005 sq ft (8,919 m2) of new retail uses, including construction of a 30,000 sq ft (3,000 m2) second floor addition to the existing one-story retail building. Phase II also involves construction of a 160,666-square-foot (14,926 m2) parking garage, construction of necessary public improvements, relocation of existing utilities within the shopping center, and upgrading pedestrian walkways and vehicular facilities.[5]
