The University of Southern California is getting a $700 million dollar retail mall
USC and its south Los Angeles campus get a new 15 acre mall and mini-Target – and a Trader Joe – that have been three years in the making.
Just prior to the students coming back to USC’s campus next week, most parts of a three-year-long project to construct a new retail center/mall are finally opening. The mini-Target, at just 22,000 square feet (most are on the average 130,000 square feet) will open its doors over Labor Day weekend and will be the sixth small format Target store to open in the L.A. area.
The $700-million USC development will bring over 100,000 square feet of retail space, five-story residence halls for 2,700 students, a fitness center, and a drugstore on the former site of the University Village shopping center. There will also be a collection of restaurants set around a central, open-air plaza. Designed by Harley Ellis Devereaux, the buildings will be in a style dubbed “collegiate Gothic.” Freshman students enrolling will no doubt now find it more convenient to deal with busy college life needs.
One hundred percent of the stores intend to be ready when the full USC development premiers by this fall.
