Glendale Galleria plans major renovation
The news came just weeks after major competitor Rick Caruso revealed that he had bought the large Nordstrom space at the Galleria, and that he would move the high-end retailer next door to what will eventually be his expanded Americana at Brand mall in Glendale.
In March, Caruso announced that Nordstrom would be a key part of an expansion of the 15.5-acre Americana in 2013 but pledged to find retailers for the newly vacated space, but also called for an overhaul of Galleria II — the part of the mall between Central Avenue and Brand.
The Galleria and Americana, Sandeep Mathrani, chief executive of General Growth Properties said, should be viewed “as one retail area. We are going to do things that are completely win-win.”
