Construction on Eataly L.A. has recently completed at the newly renovated Westfield Century City shopping mall in Los Angeles. The location marks the first West Coast location for Eataly, an Italian Marketplace complete with restaurants and a cooking school.
The new 67,000-sf, three-story complex includes nine take-away food counters, four restaurants, multiple kitchens, a cooking school, retail space, and two chilled wine storage rooms. Two interconnected staircases link the three floors.
One of the more unique aspects of the new marketplace is the addition of a clean room that ensures secure preparation of mozzarella and gelato. The room includes customized pasteurizers that replicate the authentic taste of gelato and mozzarella from Italy.
An in-house greywater system was installed that recycles water to reduce the amount of drinkable water the store uses for flushing toilets and watering plants by up to 33%.
Eataly L.A. is the fifth Eataly in the United States and the 39th in the world. Studios Architecture was the architect for the project and Clune Construction Company was the general contractor.
