South Bay Pavilion - Carson, California
South Bay Pavilion is a traditional enclosed single-story regional mall currently anchored by Sears, IKEA, and JC Penny. The mall was repositioned by relocating existing tenants, demolishing approximately 135,000 square feet of in-line retail space, and replacing it with a new 142,000 square foot Target "Greatland" retail store. The interior and exterior was refurbished by adding new retail space on the mall's former "blank" facade, developing outlying pad sites to accommodate tenants, and constructing additional exterior retail stores located around the new perimeter of the mall. In addition, several pads were developed and sold to investors. The development has attracted several brand name tenants to this revitalized regional mall.
