Document Description
As a result of the recent acquisition of the Sear's parcel, the Simon Property Group is proposing redevelopment of the Brea Mall. The proposed redevelopment would be on a 17.5-acre area in the southwest portion of the mall site. The proposed project involves demolishing the Sears department store and associated auto center (161,990 square feet) and 12 acres of surface parking in order to allow a mix of uses-including retail, for-rent residential uses, a resort-type fitness center, and a public gathering space. The project would result in a net increase of 149,625 square feet of retail use and between 312 residential units on an approximately 17.5-acre portion of the 74-acre Brea Mall site. The proposed project would require a General Plan Amendment and zone change to Mixed Use I to accommodate the proposed residential component of the project
