With the project's September 22 opening date fast approaching, developer Rick Caruso is nearing completion at his three-acre Palisades Village.

The project site - bounded by Sunset Boulevard, Monument Street, and Swarthmore Avenue - will feature over 110,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, centered around a small park.  The mix of one- and two-story commercial buildings were designed in a vintage style by Gensler and Elkus Manfredi Architects, a Boston-based firm which has previously worked with Caruso on both the Grove and the Americana at Brand.

A project website lists tenants that include a variety of boutique stores and eateries, as well as chains such as Amazon Books, See's Candies, and Sephora.

Notably, Caruso is reviving the Bay Theatre, a Pacific Palisades landmark which has been shuttered since the 1970s.  The late 1940s venue's five screening rooms - each featuring 40 to 60 seats - will be reactivated by cinepolis Luxury Theatres.
