Valley Fair opens massive expansion project

A major shopping mall expansion has opened in the West Valley.

On March 5, Westfield Valley Fair opened a 500,000-square-foot expansion, part of its $1.1 billion upgrades. New public areas, a three-level Bloomingdales, and more retailers opened as part of the new phase, with new openings continuing through to 2021.

“We envisioned Westfield Valley Fair as a place where prestigious luxury brands, digitally native start-up retailers, and best-in-class dining and entertainment all come together to create a true lifestyle destination and the perfect place to shop, dine and play,” said Larry Green, of Valley Fair’s owner Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW).

The new expansion also includes a partnership with the San Jose Museum of Art, which will bring art – curated and commissioned – to the mall. A large outdoor sculpture, to be unveiled this Fall, will occupy the new entrance off of Stevens Creek Boulevard.

“We are also excited to celebrate our partnership with the San José Museum of Art and begin to unveil our plans to ensure that the center exists as a community hub,” Green continued.

In addition to Bloomingdales, a number of new stores are opening at Valley Fair this month, ranging from Urban Outfitters to Jimmy Choo.

New stores and restaurants planned for the now 2.2 million square foot complex include the region’s first Eataly and a new flagship Apple store.
