In 2012 Westfield UTC was transformed into a Retail-Resort Destination. The entire look and feel of Westfield UTC has been updated and upgraded with new flooring, fixtures, lighting and landscaping during the 2012 renovation. The revitalization has enhanced the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, giving it a casual open-air look. Storefronts were made taller and transformed into High Street-style shops, accentuating new and existing retailers alike. Additions like “The Gardens” offer an educational opportunity for kids of all ages, and the special “High/Low” fountains, grass patches and a Bark Park accommodate customers’ four-legged friends. Children’s play space, family lounges and interactive community gathering spaces provide a welcoming environment for all to enjoy. Common areas offer free WiFi, Free Little Libraries, a fully appointed Guest Service team, a non-smoking environment have been added to underscore UTC's commitment to family-friendly conveniences and amenities. UTC’s Phase II expands on this success curated by our guests and loyal shoppers by capturing the look and feel of the upscale beach side environment, clearly defining UTC as San Diego’s most memorable flagship shopping, dining and entertainment destination.
