Bringing a new dimension to the California coastal open-air shopping experience, Irvine Company Retail Properties has created some of America’s most popular retail centers. Since opening our first neighborhood retail center in 1963, we develop, manage, and market retail environments designed to integrate with and enhance the surrounding community. The result is an always-evolving, vibrant and successful blend of merchants that keep our retail centers on the leading edge of consumer trends.
From regional centers such as Fashion Island in Newport Beach to neighborhood shopping centers like Woodbury Town Center in Irvine, each locally-tailored center offers its own unique mix of shopping, dining and entertainment set among lush landscaping, expansive paseos, relaxing fountains and inviting gathering places where people want to meet. With forward-thinking retail and service mixes, each retail destination embodies the essence of an aspirational coastal California lifestyle and is planned to serve the needs of its distinct customer base.
