Just announced this week, Rolling Hills Estates will do a $12 million remodel to the aging Peninsula Center strip mall.
The Rolling Hills Estates Planning Committee has approved the $12 million Peninsula Center remodel shown in this artist’s rendition.
As reported by Nick Gree, of the Daily Breeze, “The improvements will take place over the next year,” said Niki Wetzel, principal planner for Rolling Hills Estates, in the wake of Monday’s tentative approval of the project by the Planning Commission. The panel will formally sign off next month on what is the first significant improvement to the landmark mall in about two decades.
The work will see the addition of three new outlying pad buildings and revamp two others that currently exist, resulting in the addition of about 24,400 square feet of additional retail space to the 294,000-square-foot mall, Wetzel said.
In addition, a pedestrian colonnade is slated for removal so that there is improved vehicular access linking the northerly and central portions of the mall on the 25-acre site at the intersection of Hawthorne Boulevard and Silver Spur Road. Sidewalks will flank the 24-foot-wide road
The facade of the mall, which dates to the mid-1950s, will also receive an overhaul, as will the landscaping. ”
