Nordstrom is investing in more Oxford Circus style, adding store-within-a-store boutiques featuring Brit brands Topshop and Topman to more of its upscale department stores, including the location under construction at the Americana at Brand. Topshop capsules will open in 28 more Nordstrom locations starting in late September, the Los Angeles Times reported, bringing the total to 42 stores. Once eight planned Topman additions launch, 18 Nordstroms around the country will feature the men's fashions.

Developer Rick Caruso expanded his Glendale retail empire Wednesday with the announcement that he has purchased the Nordstrom site at the Glendale Galleria and will move the high-end retailer to the Americana at Brand in 2013. Caruso also sent a letter to the chief executive of Galleria owner General Growth Properties, asking to meet about a revamp of Galleria II, the portion of the 200-plus-store mall marred by the long-empty Mervyns site at Brand Boulevard and Broadway. In the letter, Caruso said Galleria II “has suffered from significant vacancy and lack of foot traffic” and that the two parties “should work together to stop this trend.” While General Growth Properties does own the Galleria, the anchor stores typically are owned by their tenants, and that was the case with the Nordstrom property.

After millions of dollars and a public relations battle with the owner of the Golden Key Hotel, Americana at Brand developer Rick Caruso now may have to contend with the Glendale Historical Society. At issue is a brick building at 230 S. Orange St. that is slated for demolition to make way for a new Nordstrom slated for the site it and the Golden Key occupy. Caruso acquired the former recording studio building for $4.1 million in January, but Glendale Historical Society sent a letter to the city arguing it should be saved.

There's a secret spot in the Americana with a wicked hamburger and a mean Mai Tai. You won't find it street side as you wander down shopping lanes. You probably won't see it from the fountain or green. No, this hidden gem is up three escalators, past mannequins bearing high-end children's clothing, tucked into a corner on the upper floor of Nordstrom. Bar Verde is a bastion of low-key elegance and unostentatious quality with a distinctive Seattle vibe. Warm wood paneling, flattering vintage lighting, private booths and cool alternative music define the dining room.

This is great time for the city of Glendale. On Wednesday, our company, Caruso Affiliated, announced the expansion of the Americana at Brand to include a brand new Nordstrom store (“Nordstrom will move to Americana,” March 17). At the same time, we purchased the space in the Galleria II wing of the Glendale Galleria that is currently occupied by Nordstrom. Caruso Affiliated has made a significant investment in Glendale with the development of the Americana at Brand, which has already generated more than $3 million in new sales tax revenue for the city.

Gretchen Hoffman GLENDALE -- Glendale Police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a woman in a Glendale Galleria parking lot. The woman told police she was leaving Nordstrom at about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday when a car drove slowly toward her, according to the police report. The driver appeared to be speaking to the woman, so she approached his car window, according to the report. When she got to the car, she saw that he was exposing himself, police said.

A slice of Glendale history will survive when the Americana at Brand unveils its new Nordstrom department store. Addressing concerns from the Glendale Historical Society, Americana developer Rick Caruso on Monday announced that he has agreed to use the façade of the former recording studio at 230 S. Orange St. in a pedestrian passageway next to Nordstrom. In February, Glendale Historical Society President John LoCascio wrote a letter to the Glendale Redevelopment Agency, saying the one-story brick building is a rare local example of the Mission Revival style, with concrete-capped buttresses and a curved parapet.

Last Friday, the new Nordstrom at the Americana at Brand opened to the public with a flourish. All three stories of the 135,000-square-foot building were packed with hundreds of potential customers ready to drop some cash at the store's 10 a.m. opening. But that was after its grand-opening gala a few days before. For those willing to spend $100 a pop, hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dessert, cocktails and live entertainment were readily available. But first, champagne. Guests were served by waiters balancing glasses of the bubbly on trays.

As one of many in North Glendale who have been addressing building design and related issues in our community the last few years, my interest was piqued when I saw the design rendering for the proposed new Nordstrom store (“City agrees to Caruso's plans for new Nordstrom,” Oct. 27). Is this design in keeping with the overall Americana at Brand style? Does it even blend in with it? Regardless, to me the design looks modern in style and like a “big box” store, relatively lacking in design.

High-end department store Bloomingdale's announced plans Thursday to become an anchor tenant at the Glendale Galleria, moving into the former Mervyn's site that has sat vacant on Brand Boulevard for years. It's a major addition for the mega mall that has struggled to retain its retail dominance against the growing prominence of nearby Americana at Brand, which is poaching Nordstrom after attracting other previously Galleria-only stores such as Apple and Sephora. Bloomingdale's, which according to the announcement plans to move into the 120,000-square-foot site at the corner of Broadway and Brand Boulevard by fall 2013, is expected to create 175 jobs and re-energize the fledgling intersection where Borders shuttered a prominent multi-story glass storefront across the street.

Glendale officials on Tuesday approved plans for the so-called “missing piece” at the Americana at Brand - a 122,000-square-foot Nordstrom along Colorado Street. Earlier this year, billionaire developer Rick Caruso announced plans to move Nordstrom from its site at the Glendale Galleria II - a major coup that would strip his main competition of yet another huge anchor tenant. Caruso has so far declined to discuss potential replacements for the current Nordstrom building, which he owns.
