About

Fashion Valley Mall is an upscale, open-air shopping mall in Mission Valley in San Diego, California. It is owned and managed by the Simon Property Group.

History

Fashion Valley Mall, developed by Ernest M. Hahn, opened in [. Aimed to be the leading shopping center in the San Diego region, it boasted four anchors, The Broadway, JCPenney, J.W. Robinson's and Buffum's. For several years it competed with the neighboring Mission Valley Center.

Since its opening, the mall has undergone several expansions and changes. The first in August 1981 added Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, establishing Fashion Valley as the fashion leader in the valley. Following this redevelopment, in 1991, Buffum's closed, and their location was reopened in 1992 by upscale specialty San Francisco department store I. Magnin. However, the upscale company eventually closed all stores in the mid-90s, and the Fashion Valley location was replaced by Saks Fifth Avenue in 1995. Robinson's became a Robinsons-May in 1993, while The Broadway was purchased by Macy's in 1996.

In October 1997, Gene Kemp led a $110 million renovation project, enlarging the Macy's, Nordstrom and Robinsons-May stores. It increased the mall size to 1,700,000 [[square feet], 205 stores, and added 5 parking structures to accommodate 8,000 cars. In 2001, th owner of the property, Lend Lease Prime Property Fund, brought in Simon Property Group as half-owner and manager of the property.

Due to the merger of May Department Stores and Federated Department Stores in 2006, Robinsons-May shuttered their store in March 2006, and the location was reopened as San Diego's first Bloomingdale's on November 18, 2006.
