After three years of construction, the $250-million redevelopment of the former Westfield Topanga Sears is complete, heralding the debut of Topanga Social.

The project, a joint venture between mall owner Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and Earl Enterprises, includes 27 different food and beverage concepts in an approximately 55,000-square-foot space with 700 indoor seats and 80-seat outdoor dining area.

“It is such a thrill to see Topanga Social come to life in this brilliant repurposing of prime real estate. We have brought together an incredible assemblage of talent, chefs, and brands that, until now, were available mostly in Los Angeles, but starting Thursday, will be easily accessible for the residents of the city's San Fernando Valley,” said Robert Earl, founder of Earl Enterprises in a news release. “Careful thought has gone into the curation for Topanga Social, paying homage to the local food scene. Each partner brings their impeccable credentials, whether a storied institution or a newer, highly acclaimed brand. The space is designed to be welcoming all year-round, for both indoor dining and al fresco in the garden. It is a place to visit again and again, for a quick pre-movie bite, a leisurely meal, or any sort of gathering. Topanga Social offers food and beverage options for every mood, and all tastes. Thanks to the collaborative partnership with the visionary team at Westfield, we are very proud to unveil Topanga Social.”

While Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield still owns the Westfield Topanga mall, its time as a landlord in Los Angeles is coming to a close. The French conglomerate has moved to sell all of its U.S. assets, which previously included a trio of malls along Topanga Canyon Boulevard in the Warner Center area. One of those assets - the struggling Promenade mall - has already sold to L.A. Rams owner Stan Kroenke, who has recently acquired a number of large development sites throughout the neighborhood.
