Westfield Mall - UTC
- General Info:
- Westfield UTC presents the ultimate shopping & leisure experience to one of the most elite trade areas in the country, including La Jolla, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, Carmel Valley, and Solana Beach. With its close proximity to affluent residential neighborhoods, prestigious resorts, dense class-A office population, and UCSD, this venue offers an incomparable market for premier retailers and established & emerging restaurants. In 2012, Westfield UTC celebrated the opening of a $180 million resort-inspired transformation, featuring new luxury boutiques and top national fashion brands; along with a sleek & sophisticated new dining terrace, full service restaurants, and new lifestyle and entertainment choices such as San Diego's first ArcLight Cinemas (a 14-screen, 1,800-seat luxury theater experience) and 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport club. This stunningly designed destination now features a superb lineup of premier retailers including Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., J. Crew, Rolex, Lululemon Athletica, Madewell, Splendid, Free People, Hanna Andersson, Banana Republic, Williams-Sonoma, PIRCH, Pottery Barn & Pottery Barn Kids, Lush, Tumi, The Art of Shaving, Kiehls, and Tesla Motors. Exceptional new dining options include Seasons 52, Lemonade, Tender Greens, and Eureka! In addition, the property's new Palm Plaza is an outdoor event experience all its own, while new children's play places, family lounges, and interactive community gathering spaces provide a welcoming environment for all to enjoy.
I really like this mall. They have parking lots that surround the buildings and it's mostly an outdoor mall. They have a wide variety of stores and some good eateries. There's an ice-skating ring in the one indoor section where the food court is; so you can watch kids fall on the ice while eating your corndog.
I've been here many many times and like their selection for shopping but there's really not much in the way of eateries here. Their layout is odd, almost like a starfish, which requires you to double-back on your route often. More for going specifically for something rather than just walking around. Parking is very difficult on weekends and sometimes requires quite a treck.
