GlobeSt.com reports that Rick Caruso's much anticipated lifestyle mall (a la The Grove) Americana at Brand in Glendale has secured a $300 million construction loan, keeping the project on track for a Spring 2008 opening. Also mentioned in the article is a quick listing of the stores proposed for the project, which we hadn't seen before:
The shops and boutiques at the Americana will include H&M, Juicy Couture, lululemon athletica, Martin + Osa, Kiehl's, Art of Shaving, A/X Armani Exchange, Lacoste and BCBG Max Azria. Pacific Theatres will operate the 18-plex cinema. So, yeah it's your standard mall tenants, but now us people on the east side will have an option when we want to avoid the holiday misery at The Grove and Beverly Center. We're bringing misery to the east side, and we love it.
