The Webster is entering Los Angeles for the first time with a “flagship” set to open in the Beverly Center in 2020.
The retailer will house its high-end collection of designer brands in an 11,000-square-foot setting, serving as “the centerpiece” of the intersection of Beverly and San Vicente Boulevards.
“We are as selective about our real estate decisions as we are about our curation of fashion brands,” said founder Laure Hériard Dubreuil.
The Webster, based in Miami, operates luxury stores in South Beach and Bal Harbour, Fla., as well as Costa Mesa, Calif., Houston and SoHo in New York.
“We continue to curate the perfect mix of fashion, food and experiences to ensure Beverly Center stands apart in the market,” said William Taubman, chief operating officer of Taubman Centers, which owns and operates the Beverly Center. “There is simply nothing like The Webster in L.A.”
Taubman’s $500 million “reimagination” of Beverly Center will be completed by November. The project has involved re-creating the exterior and interior with a brighter and more contemporary aesthetic and greater accessibility. New restaurants and retailers, as well as a new 3rd Street Valet, have been added.
Beverly Center has more than 100 specialty boutiques including Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Saint Laurent.
Taubman Centers is a real estate investment trust, which owns, manages and/or leases 26 regional, super-regional and outlet shopping centers in the U.S. and Asia.
