"We are working with our partner, Miller Capital, on this deal," said CalPERS spokesman Joe DeAnda. "However, it is still pending, and there is not a lot more we can add until the deal closes."

The 41-year-old shopping mall has nearly 300 stores and 2.3 million square feet, anchored by Macy's, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, JCPenney and Sears.

Spokesmen for Woodfield did not return calls for comment.
