The West Hollywood Gateway is a regional shopping center in West Hollywood, California, United States.


The West Hollywood Gateway is an outdoor shopping mall developed by the JH Snyder Company and designed by renowned architect, Jon Jerde.[1] The four-story structure features two subterranean parking levels and two above-ground retail levels. The West Hollywood Gateway is located on the southwest corner Santa Monica Blvd. and La Brea Avenue. The mall is anchored by the first big box retailers in the city, Target and Best Buy, and it also features eight restaurants as well as several retail stores.[2]

Occupying a total of 257,000 square feet (23,900 m2), construction on the West Hollywood Gateway began in September 2002 as part of the City of West Hollywood's Santa Monica Blvd. Redevelopment project. The West Hollywood Gateway opened to the public in March 2004. The site includes the free-standing famous Hollywood landmark, the Formosa Cafe.

The Center is also home to the Los Angeles' largest public art display using projection technology, which is located in the main courtyard. This art display was designed by renowned video artist Paul Tzanetopoulos.


In addition to retail stores and restaurants, the site "features a large outdoor plaza that functions as a civic square, inviting pedestrian activity through the use of outdoor eating areas, fountains, public art, retail kiosks and lush landscaping."[3] As of April 2007 the parking structure offered one hour of free parking (no validation required) to all visitors. The parking structure does not staff any full-time cashiers and all parking payments must be made at one of the several Pay Station kiosks located throughout the site.

Bicycle parking is offered at street-level on the La Brea Ave. side as well as on the first parking level adjacent to the escalators.
