NEWPORT BEACH - It's been a busy couple of years for Fashion Island, which added 40 new stores and restaurants as part of a $100-million cash infusion. As the wave of change for the Irvine Co.-owned coastal shopping center trickles off - this month marked the Island Cinemas' reopening as officials announced Whole Foods Market's arrival in the fall - weekend foot-traffic is up 20% over last year, said Dan Sheridan, president of the Irvine Co.'s retail properties. "The idea behind the reinvestment was building upon a location that cannot be replicated," Sheridan said, referring to the center's proximity to the coast, parks, open spaces and affluent neighborhoods.
