Davis Street Land Company, owner and manager of The Gardens on El Paseo, has announced that El Paseo Village is due to break ground on November 2nd, 2009. Signed retail stores include: Juicy Couture, Banana Republic, Kate Spade, Bebe, Lucky Brand Jeans, Janie & Jack and Mastro’s Steakhouse.
El Paseo Village is situated on the south side of El Paseo between San Pablo and Lupine, adjacent to The Gardens on El Paseo. The shopping center will be a single level structure totaling 41,000 square feet. Altoon & Porter, the architectural firm that designed The Gardens, served in the same capacity for the El Paseo Village redevelopment. The project will feature trendy upscale, luxury tenants in keeping with the retail and restaurant mix at The Gardens. As part of Davis Street Land Company’s commitment to sustainability, El Paseo Village is being designed to achieve LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). El Paseo Village is scheduled to open in fall 2010.
In addition, The Gardens on El Paseo welcomes Eileen Fisher in November and Louis Vuitton in spring 2010. Located on El Paseo next to Coach, Eileen Fisher brings her timeless design and elegant fabrics to the desert. Adjacent to Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton will carry not only their signature luxury leather goods, but also their full line of accessories for both men and women. Meanwhile, Banana Republic will relocate to the space previously occupied by J.Jill before moving across the street to El Paseo Village next fall.
