At the center of the UTC crossings in the happening shopping mall, counts of majirila poppies and red passion flowers match the Yogen Fruz clock tower that keeps crowds of shoppers in order by displaying messages on an electronic billboard sign. Business enterprise was in a New Year's take off on Friday, January 4th, at the mall that opened as a palm tree touched resort with over 100 shops and showrooms on November 15th last year.
One and only fashions made for just your size and color took over at the Sears anchored shopping center proven to sell patrons "ready to wear" fashions, and "distinctive" home decor. Custom colored J. Crew shirts fit right in in the Southern California picture.
New building fixtures on the north and west edges make eyes look up more often than in the past. Higher roofs made the higher store brand counts possible.
The resort chateau is well seen on the west. A building connected by walkways to any place a spender wants to make a deal.
A workout at 24 HR Fitness Sport, now a health emporium after a move south down the west outer walkway from the old corner building that was formerly a Family Fitness and now will house a hardware store, does not have to bring a day to a close. The walks over to Eureka! gourmet burgers at the top of the west entrance off Genessee Avenue and to Seasons 52 seasonal fresh grill cuisines at the end of the north entrance off La Jolla Village Drive are smooth, even in a crowd.
The walkways keep the natives moving steady past the ice plant and through the palm trees.
Regular returns to the mall can become part of the life cycle.
Little out of the way women's and children's stalls, settled in gaps, endowed with catching feminine colors, and made for the modern era courtesy of Westfield, have joined the building lines in the store mix. Near the dolphin fountain pools in the mall south, youngsters can play on the play area equipment while the families shop at Gymboree and the contemporary clothes and toy shops.
The field of action is on the upper deck, above Forever 21, a new day and night clothing store that sells "leading edge" labels next to Kay Jewelers and Sun Diego. Shows go on short walks from the ice rink still inside the doors at the palm plaza. Skyfall was showing at the new ArcLight Cinemas before E! News sent the fashion models out on the runway at the November opening and Natasha Bedingfield took the stage for her telling style song Love Like This. There was no love lost during the less than a week before Anna Karenina took a theater space.
Start ups have been counted on in the growing La Jolla community during the entire set of early years in the 2000s. There are many locals to keep pleased who live in the Torrey Pines townhomes at the Westfield resort, and in townhomes in the nearby Vista La Jolla and in the La Jolla Commons that still look like new. Mall stores are also a magnet for guests in the Marriott and Embassy Suites hotels on La Jolla Village Drive. Busy businesspeople find the place on Genessee Avenue easy to get to, by car or by foot. Power lunches in 2013 will make the new UTC a money market more secluded than before.
Nothing has halted the building at the nearby science and technology business parks. Executive Square has more offices lined up. More professionals will make their way to the class stops in the resort. Maybe even fit nicely into one of the lounge seats set up around the plaza.
Off hand sales of precision time watches and wireless accessories are found on the walks. The latest Rolex store collection is not for everyone to get their hands on. A highbrow meeting? Stopping in at the valet parking and the concierge near the north entrance makes a stay a piece of cake.
Investments made in the Ocean and Sunset parking garages, west and east of Sears, make finding a parking place work on clock for everyone.
Now that the building enterprise has run its full course, the opportunities to grow the business enterprise receipts at the resort shops are plainly coming up, by leaps and half dozens.
The 2012 openings were meant to lead to an early peak in romantic affairs at the mall during February. San Diegans can wait until May for 7 documentary trailer winners per ArcLight contest category to show up on ArcLght's YouTube page. Only a short time will pass before Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman take the screen at the cinemas for Casablanca, a classic love piece followed into La Jolla by Frank Capra's It Happened One Night. Both just days before Valentine's Day.
Let the fevered mall talks begin. The cinemas will not ever decide there has been too many shows. Partings at the mall that happen after a little pocket money is spent never will grow out of season.
