Westfield Century City Will Charge For Parking In 2013
Westfield Century City mall will start charging patrons to park in the parking lot starting in 2013, Westfield’s executive vice president of corporate communications Katy Dickey told The Courier today.
“This is to improve the experience for our customers,” she said. “We think our customers will not stop coming to the center because of this.”
Dickey said patrons would pay “market rate” fees from the first hour on to park at the Westside mall, which is currently in the midst of a $500 million expansion, in an effort to “enhance” the visitor experience.
Westfield received approval from the City of Los Angeles last month to be able to expand its parking rate structure. The mall currently grants patrons three hours of free parking, including non-mall visitors who make use of the gratis parking structure.
As part of Westfield’s expansion, the Ausralian-based shopping mall will be adding more than 500 parking spaces, which represents a 20 percent increase.
