Replete with victory, Caruso Affiliated has added a new graphic to its web site for the Shops at Santa Anita. If there was any doubt that the Arcadia City Council gave unanimous approval to the new Grove-esque mall yesterday, one need only read the large, bold, glowing red, helvetica font to get the full picture. Without further litigation from Westfield or neighborhood opponents, the Shops might be open by 2009. However, as part of his concessions to neighbors, Caruso will nix any plans for housing in the project and will throw in some community benefit items. Everyone sort of wins.
