“There was a curated mindset, open space and park-like environment. . . and not just pure retail play. I think that creates more of a sense of place, and by creating a sense of place, you connect more with the community, which is important for us.” — Sam Fox, True Food Kitchen
The Point, owned by Federal Realty Investment Trust, is the shopping, dining and entertainment destination residents of the South Bay were waiting for, complete with unique cafes, such as True Food Kitchen and ShopHouse; in demand retailers such as Marmi and the flagship Lucky Brand store; fitness studio and expansive outdoor plaza.
