The Rancho Palos Verdes Planning Commission last Thursday approved the redesigned Trader Joe's store proposed for the Golden Cove Shopping Center at the corner of Hawthorne Boulevard and Palos Verdes Drive South, at the previous location of the Golden Lotus Restaurant. The new design reduces the planned height of the 11,000 sq. ft. store from the previous 38 feet to a height of approx. 26 ft. 3 inches, and reduced the size of the planned store from the previous design of 16,000 sq. ft.
The new store is planned to be approx. the same size as the current Trader Joes in Riviera Village and Rolling Hills Plaza. The Rancho Palos Verdes City Council still needs to approve the store, but is expected to approve the revised plans. Construction is expected to start during the summer of 2009 in order to minimize the operations of the Montessori school at the shopping center.
