Westfield Topanga & The Village (previously named Topanga Plaza and Westfield Topanga) is a shopping mall in the Canoga Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, California; it is currently owned by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. It spans 2,100,000 square feet (200,000 m2) and houses anchor stores Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Target.
Opened February 10, 1964, Topanga Plaza was California's first enclosed shopping mall. A noteworthy feature was the "Rain Fountain" on the south end. It consisted of several circular arrays of vertical monofilament line stretching from the ceiling to a raised landscaped area on the floor. The effect of rain was created by droplets of recirculated glycerine slowly descending along the wetted lines.
In 1992 May Centers, Inc., the original developer, was renamed CenterMark Properties and was sold by parent company May Department Stores in 1993 to a consortium led by Westfield Holdings, Ltd., a predecessor of Westfield Group.
In September 2015, Westfield launched a major expansion of Westfield Topanga, called The Village at Westfield Topanga. The new open-air shopping destination is located along Topanga Canyon Boulevard, between Westfield Topanga and the largely-inactive Westfield Promenade.
