History[edit]

The mall was planned in 1977 to revitalize the city of Redlands. After demolishing some stores and the La Posada hotel, the mall was built in 1977 by The Hahn Company. It offered more than 173,000 square feet of enclosed leasable space and a 12,586-square-foot freestanding retail building.[1] It had two floors and contained a Sav-on Drugs store (which was re-branded to a CVS Pharmacy) and Harris'. During the mid '90s the mall was showing signs of weakness with most popular stores being replaced by independent tenants. In 1998, original tenant Harris' closed being replaced by Gottschalks shortly after since the Harris-Gottschalks acquisition took place that same year. The mall really started struggling in the early 2000s when sales dropped to exceedingly low numbers. After only twelve years as a tenant Gottschalks filed for bankruptcy in 2009 and closed all stores, including the Redlands Mall location. After struggling financially after the closure of Gottschalks, the closure of the mall was announced on September 30, 2010. All leases were terminated.

In July 2014, San Diego-based Brixton Capital LP, the private equity investment vehicle for BruttenGlobal, purchased the mall and announced plans to convert the mall to a mixed-use project with residential and retail development.[1][2]
