With the mall’s renovation nearly complete, the Galleria at Sunset is moving forward with the second phase, a $24.1 million, 30,000-square-foot expansion, which will consist of up to six new restaurants, new valet and a 12,000-square-foot outdoor plaza, including a new main entrance. Additionally, all mall entrances will be renovated and given a fresh and modern appearance and feature the center’s new logo. This is the second expansion project in the mall’s 18-year history.

The three restaurants are scheduled to open in spring 2015, with the expansion reaching a complete build-out this fall. Several restaurants will include patio seating. The remaining restaurants in the expansion will be announced at a later date.
