DOWNTOWN — Real estate developer Macerich this week announced three new tenants at Santa Monica Place, its revamped outdoor mall just south of the Third Street Promenade scheduled to reopen in August.

The retailers are: women’s clothing store Tory Burch, women’s shoe seller Charles David and Ben Bridge Jeweler.

Randy Brant, executive vice president for Santa Monica-based Macerich, said the lease signings are more proof retailers have high expectations for Santa Monica Place.

“It’s clear we’re succeeding in attracting interesting, high-quality brands to what is certainly going to be an important fashion destination on the Westside,” he said.

The 550,000 square-foot mall will be anchored by Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom and is expected to feature more than 100 merchants.

Doug Roscoe, senior manager for Santa Monica Place, said he couldn’t disclose how much space remains available but said interest from retailers has been strong and the company is pleased with the pace of leasing.

Bloomingdale’s and some mall shops are set to open Aug. 6, he said, with Nordstrom scheduled to debut Aug. 27.

Roscoe said the mall’s target audience is slightly older than the promenade’s, but said Santa Monica Place will feature a mix of luxury brands and more affordable shops.
