Santa Monica Place Seeks Community Input On Stores, Restaurants

Posted Aug. 24, 2013, 9:10 am

What retailers and restaurants would you like to see at Santa Monica Place?

That’s the question developer Macerich is asking on Popularise.

Santa Monica Place has partnered with Popularise, a crowd-sourcing platform for the real estate development industry, to gather ideas for the center’s available tenant space.

The goal of the partnership is to connect with the local community and promote engagement.

Macerich wants to know which retailers, restaurants and services both residents and visitors would like to see in this space, so they decided to eliminate the guesswork and just ask.

Popularise, launched in December 2011, allows the public to propose and vote for tenants to move into empty retail space.

Lets keep putting in more higher end shops and restaurants so none of the residents can afford it. That way the rent control residents will be forced to move out. HAHAHA

How about some local businesses? Fuggin bunch of yuppy a-holes walking around that new mall. It's a steaming pile. The idiots that want a Target or Bed Bath and Beyond need to be slapped senseless, have their Ugg boots taken from them and their daddy/husbands pretentious 3-series BWM keyed (yeah, you're not that classy, but like to think you are). Why not a WalMart then? Idiots.

I live in Santa Monica, but I don't shop in the Santa Monica Place mall. Like the rest of the 99%, I go to the Westfield mall in Culver City, where they have lots of stores that sell affordable merchandise we 99 percenters actually want. You can take that cold, ugly, pretentious mall in Santa Monica and throw it in the Pacific Ocean for all I care. Rip it all out and start over from scratch, and put in a new mall where normal people would want to visit, and maybe I'll offer the kind of input you're asking for.
