Macerich Adds New Industrious Location to Market-Dominant Broadway Plaza in Northern California

April 30, 2019

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 30, 2019/PRNewswire/ –– Macerich (NYSE: MAC), one of the nation’s leading owners, operators and developers of major retail properties in top markets, today announced a second location as part of its national relationship with premium flexible workspace provider Industrious. The new Industrious will open at Macerich’s high-performing Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, CA.  

This follows the first-in-the-portfolio opening of Industrious at Scottsdale Fashion Square in January 2019, which far exceeded expectations, reaching near complete occupancy in less than 10 weeks. More locations in Macerich’s national partnership with Industrious are expected to be announced this spring/summer.  

Industrious is a leader in the burgeoning coworking industry thanks to its thoughtfully designed spaces and hospitality-driven services and amenities. With over 65 locations across 40 U.S. cities, the company offers flexible workspaces for companies of all sizes and stages ranging from solopreneurs to Fortune 500 brands, with members including Lyft, Hyatt, Pandora, Pinterest, Pfizer, Airbus and more. 

“Macerich is leading the way when it comes to adding exciting, traffic-driving new uses to our A-level retail properties across the country,” said Tom O’Hern, Chief Executive Officer, Macerich. “At Scottsdale Fashion Square, Industrious brings all-day energy to a beautifully reimagined former Barneys space, right next to a brand new, flagship Apple store. We anticipate the same kind of complementary impact when Industrious opens at our market-dominant Broadway Plaza property, which ranks among the highest-performing retail properties in the country.”  

Industrious is slated to open at Broadway Plaza in Q4 2019, in 36,000 square feet of the newly redeveloped specialty retail core of the property, on the second level above lululemon and other top brands. 

“Industrious is hyper-focused on providing members with an amazing workplace experience; being in Broadway Plaza allows us to deliver on that and more,” said Jamie Hodari, CEO and co-founder of Industrious. “Macerich’s shared commitment to quality and high-end experiences makes them a great partner for Industrious; we’re so proud of how well Fashion Square is performing and look forward to serving more consumers across Macerich properties.”

Broadway Plaza is a unique outdoor retail setting in the center of affluent, downtown Walnut Creek, CA. Now more than 900,000 square feet after an extensive redevelopment and expansion completed in 2016, the LEED® Gold-certified Broadway Plaza features dozens of top specialty stores including Apple, Athleta, Crate&Barrel, Eileen Fisher, Madewell, Nespresso, Sephora and more, plus high-performing Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Macy’s department stores, and a roster of sought-after experiences – from SoulCycle and Tesla to True Food Kitchen.
