Westfield Corp. is giving Century City Mall an $800 million makeover, stealing Nordstrom Inc. from the Westside Pavilion and adding Eataly, a gourmet Italian food emporium. The goal is to make it more competitive with the Grove and Santa Monica Place, the Los Angeles Times reports. About one-fourth of the mall will be given over to restaurants because that’s a good way for a mall to compete in an era of online shopping. The work, which could total $1 billion including other improvements, is expected to be completed in 2017.
