The Seattle-based retailer’s new store will encompass 145,000 square feet — a 15,000-foot increase — on two levels and include a full-service bistro-style restaurant.
The result will be a contemporary shopping venue offering a “sense of discovery,” according to Nordstrom spokesman John Bailey, who noted the current store dates to 1984.
“Relocating and building a new store at Westfield UTC gives us the chance to bring our newest design concepts and an updated shopping experience to our new and long-time customers,” said Store Manager Kathy Keegan.
The announcement of Nordstrom’s schedule was part of a variety of information released Tuesday about progress at the popular shopping destination.
John Alderson, vice president of development for Westfield in San Diego, said his company is creating a “resort-inspired environment that celebrates our beautiful climate.”
He said leases have been signed with close to 20 new stores, with an emphasis on fashion and home. Newcomers include clothiers Vineyard Vines, Marine Layer and Rodd & Gunn, jewelers Kendra Scott and Swarovski, cosmetic boutique Jo Malone London, and handcraft furniture retailer Arhaus.
“We’re being discerning with the retail partners we sign for this next era of Westfield UTC,” said Alderson. “It’s our goal to offer shoppers the established stores they love while also being the first to provide access to trend-forward brand concepts that can’t be found anywhere else in the city.”
