The Commons at Calabasas is an upscale retail and entertainment complex in Calabasas, California, United States, built, owned, and operated by Rick J. Caruso and his company Caruso Affiliated. It has now become a tourist destination as celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian, are frequently seen at the high-end shopping center.

History[edit]

Development of the upscale retail and entertainment complex began with a vision of an Umbrian village, complementing the community's dominant Mediterranean style. Carusco Affiliated did not just want to build a shopping center, but a town center for the city of Calabasas. The Commons at Calabasas opened in 1998 and has been a popular high-end outdoor mall ever since.[1]

Design[edit]

The 215,000-square-foot (20,000 m2) outdoor marketplace is located in Calabasas in Los Angeles County, California. Caruso Affiliated claims the design resembles a Tuscan hill town of the Umbria region in rural Italy, renovated to be a retail resort. Its 40 tenants provide everyday needs, lifestyle/specialty shops, and entertainment.

Information[edit]

The Commons at Calabasas is a crescent of high-end retail stores, restaurants and entertainment choices set against the hillsides of Calabasas, one of the wealthiest communities in California. The Commons at Calabasas is the most dominant retail center in the region. With this upscale shopping center, a town center was created where none had existed before. The developer provided urban amenities that encourage shoppers and residents to make it a destination, thereby “seeding” the Park Centre area for further development as a commercial and civic center. The Commons at Calabasas has free parking lot and numerous outdoor dining areas.
