In early August a spokesperson for Westfield confirmed that the mall’s lender was looking to transition management of the property to a third party and sell Westfield Palm Desert.

KESQ reports the August announcement came just hours after the Wall Street Journal reported that Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield was looking to unload its mall assets as the company attempts to shrink its debt.

The company sold off three U.S. malls last year.
