Manhattan Village

CallisonRTKL repositions a struggling retail center into an upscale beach shopping destination.

Once struggling at only 60 percent occupancy, Manhattan Village is now a successful upscale shopping center that reflects the beach lifestyle of its surrounding community. The multi-phased repositioning includes a renovation to the existing center and a 36,000-SF open-air retail extension that echoes Manhattan Beach’s “walkstreets,” which are pedestrian thoroughfares connecting to the beach. Its outwardly focused casual beach theme accomplished the owners’ desires to attract high-end lifestyle tenants and boost revenue, doubling sales per square foot in the first year.
