Originally developed in 1975 by developer General Growth Cos. (led by the Buckbaum Brothers, and a predecessor of General Growth Properties), it was sold when that early REIT was liquidated in 1984. In 1998 it was acquired by a joint venture of The Macerich Company and Simon Property Group, with Macerich assuming the role of managing partner. On January 1, 2012, Simon Property Group became the manager and full owner of the mall.
