"The opening of Gelson’s is an exciting milestone at West Edge as our first retailer,” said Matthew Hines, director at Hines, the developer of the West Edge complex. “Here at West Edge, we are creating an inviting and diverse community in this untapped area of West LA. Gelson’s will provide residents and visitors with convenience and a variety of high-quality offerings that will enhance the experience of West Edge.”
The West L.A. location isn’t the end of Gelson’s local expansion. In late September, the grocer announced it would be partnering with electric vehicle-charging station developer Rove to provide food and beverage services at its new charging stations. Rove plans to build six locations in Southern California beginning this year, with 20 stations planned by 2026.
