Lifestyle Destination

The Lakes at Thousand Oaks is a lifestyle destination created by the collaborative talents of Caruso Affiliated, Retail Design Collaborative and Lifescapes International, Inc. This refreshing outdoor location offers multiple options for family entertainment, featuring a mix of restaurants and specialty stores. The Lakes also has a seasonal ice rink overlooking a new lake replete with playful water features. Retail Design Collaborative’s building design offers alternating façades orchestrated along the perimeter of the lake. Embedded within a sophisticated interplay of elegant landscape design and pedestrian paseos, the integration of dining opportunities and specialty shops draws pedestrian traffic and hugs the new and stunning body of water.
