Centennial Enters into Agreement to Purchase Nordstrom Space

Centennial Real Estate Company, owner of MainPlace Mall, and a real estate firm specializing in the investment, development, and management of retail properties, announces their plans to purchase the Nordstrom space as part of a larger vision to reposition the MainPlace Mall site. Centennial recognizes the value of the asset and its location, and over the last year began the process of creating a master plan to continue its vision of transforming MainPlace Mall, and solidifying its place as Santa Ana’s most dominant shopping, dining, entertainment, and lifestyle destination.

“By making this investment, Centennial is confirming our long-term commitment to the mall,” said Steven Levin, Chief Executive Officer. “We have been looking at MainPlace, the importance of its position within the community, and the entire site in terms of continuing to make it a compelling destination in Southern California. Our development executives are in communication with city officials about the opportunity for the center’s evolution in the years to come.”

The current redevelopment plans for MainPlace Mall are also in alignment with the ongoing revitalization of the City of Santa Ana. Throughout the city, developers are creatively reimagining buildings and properties into mixed-use developments including residential and retail.

In 2016, MainPlace Mall completed the first phase of the redevelopment with the transformation of the former Macy’s Men’s and Home store which brought in new uses such as; 24-Hour Fitness Super Sport, Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ, Panini Café, Ashley Furniture and Round One Bowling & Amusement.

“With MainPlace Mall we are creating a distinctive sense of place that will continue to evolve with the community for generations to come,” said Kevin Connell, Senior Vice President of Development. “There are a lot of changes on the horizon for MainPlace Mall, which will be announced in the coming months. As we finalize the redevelopment plans, we are striving to put people and the community first.”
