MGP is contemplating additional restaurants, a multi-screen luxury movie theater, and fitness tenant. Existing pad restaurants such as King’s Fish House and In-N-Out will remain, in addition to Nordstrom Rack. The City currently expects between 225,000 - 300,000 square feet of retail to be part of development at the property. The Laguna Hills Mall previously contained around 965,000 square feet of retail space (GFA), of which 536,000 square feet was contained in the former Sears, J.C. Penney, and Macy’s department store buildings.
March 2021 Update: The final Village at Laguna Hills plans have been modified to eliminate the retail range described above. New commercial space will include a 50,000 square foot theater building, two retail pads on El Toro Road and one retail pad on Avenida de la Carlota totaling +/-23,000 square feet. An additional +/- 46,000 square feet of retail shops will surround the project’s proposed 2.6-acre park. Approximately 108,000 square feet of retail space will face El Toro Road. Existing restaurants (King’s Fish House/ In-N-Out/ BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse) totaling +/- 23,000 square feet provide the project’s 250,000 retail building area.
