Redlands Mall

| | Comments (0)

It appears the Redlands Mall will be no more as a sale to a Newport Beach-based developer appears imminent.

Redlands Mall

Redlands Mall

The buyer, Hopkins Real Estate Group, has ambitious plans for the 12-acre site. Plans call for replacing the mall with an urban village development that will include both commercial and residential. Such a development should fit very nicely within the existing historic downtown area, itself a modest form of an urban village.

The proposed development is all part of Redlands' recent efforts at maintaining the vibrancy of the downtown district. The city has plans for 2 parking structures and is actively pursuing the addition of a high-end, business-class hotel. The mall's site is seen as a primary component in the city's overall plans for the downtown area.

Opened in 1977, the Mall anchors the west end of downtown Redlands' State Street historic district. Tiny by traditional indoor mall standards, the approximately 200,000 square-foot mall has helped keep the downtown district brimming with activity during its 25-plus years.

The mall's primary tenant over the years has been a Harris-Gottschalk.
