Whole New Mall Game!

| October 25, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY Nearly 700 guests ascended to the rooftop of downtown’s Hard Rock Hotel for a newsy announcement by Westfield UTC. THE NEWS Westfield VIPs unveiled plans for a $180 million renovation of the aging mall, including the addition of a Tender Greens restaurant—the popular organic eatery—as well as plans to expand the food court with more than 15 options. While officials were still hush-hush on new retail stores (Zara, anyone?), UTC will be getting in on the luxury theater action with an ArcLight Cinemas, doling out martinis and popcorn. There are also plans for a fresh outdoor look, with pedestrian-friendly walkways, eco amenities and a family lounge. THE HIGHLIGHTS A surprise performance came from our fave scruffy crooner and pro surfer, Donavon Frankenreiter. He rocked the Float rooftop as the crowd sipped signature drinks and swayed along.
