The Collection is a 600,000 square foot, open-air, specialty center located in the heart of the RiverPark community. Opening in 2012, The Collection is inspired by the beauty of the California Coast and reflects the unique atmosphere of the surrounding seaside communities. Its eclectic, contemporary and sophisticated architecture invite you to relax, enjoy and explore.
But The Collection is much more than a shopping center-it's an experience. Built around a village-like grid of retail streets that host a wide variety of emerging and established designer shops, fine dining establishments, and signature entertainment venues. Tree-lined streets, lush but water-wise landscaping, playful fountains, pocket parks, outdoor seating areas, plazas and paseos all work together to create a classic but casual environment.
And in recognition of the important role art plays in enriching our lives, The Collection commissioned new works of art from nationally recognized, local artists to be displayed throughout the center. Their artwork reflects the rich diversity of coastal imagery and invites visitors to shop and browse among their creative interpretations of the California lifestyle.
Anchoring the center is the area's first Whole Foods Market, a 16-Screen Century Theatres complex, a two-story REI, and a new Target that has already opened for business. Additional retailers will be announced in the coming months.
