Westfield has completed the first phase of redevelopment in Los Angeles International Airport Terminal 1, which will introduce Southwest Airlines customers to a new retail and dining collection.
As part of a $508 million over-haul spearheaded by Southwest and Los Angeles World Airports, Westfield’s new dining and retail collection will feature 24 destinations and a “reimagined experience with a hip, modern California feel.”
The first of three phases features the opening of six brands, including Rock & Brews – from KISS front men Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley – Be Relax, Brookstone, I Love L.A., Sol Surf and Treat Me Sweet.
In addition, Southwest is upgrading the customer gate areas, giving the terminal a fresh new look while providing a more efficient customer experience.
The Terminal 1 overhaul was announced in September 2014 and is slated for completion in 2018. When finished, the Terminal 1 retail and dining collection will nearly double in size to 25,242 feet. The new design of the terminal offers an immersive retail experience featuring unified retail storefronts.
In partnership with the city of Los Angeles and LAWA, Westfield is transforming the passenger experience at LAX terminals 1, 2, 3, 6 and Tom Bradley International Terminal.
