South Coast Plaza




South Coast Plaza is an upscale-luxury shopping center in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California. It is the largest mall in California, third largest mall in United States and 9th largest mall in the world. Its sales of over 1.5 billion are highest in the United States. The shopping mall's 250 retailers represent the highest concentration of design fashion retail in the U.S, with the second highest sales-volume in California at $800 per square foot—second only to Westfield Valley Fair in San Jose-Santa Clara, at $809 per square foot. The national average is $411 per square foot.

South Coast Plaza continuously brings in approximately 24 million visitors annually. In addition to shopping, it is also home to the Orange Lounge, a digital media-focused branch of the Orange County Museum of Art. In 2004, South Coast Plaza received the Federal Trademark as "The Ultimate Shopping Resort".

Many ultra-luxury brands, which have very few boutiques nationwide, have chosen South Coast Plaza as one of their few store locations. Zara made its debut in the California market opening their first California store in South Coast Plaza in 2004. In 2005, French luxury design house Chloé opted to open their second United States boutique at South Coast Plaza. As of Fall 2008, this is still the only southern California location, with Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills notably absent. Watch Manufacturer Rolex opened their flagship U.S. location at South Coast Plaza.
Many larger luxury brand stores gather here as well, with some, such as Harry Winston, Tiffany's, Cartier, Calypso Christiane Celle, Montblanc, Rolex, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Prada, Dior, Valentino, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Hermès, Christian Louboutin, Barneys New York Co-Op, and Nordstrom reporting their location at South Coast as having the highest sales in the United States.

The shopping center also features restaurants such as Lawry's Carvery, Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdales, and Vie De France as opposed to a food court. Additionally, features such as valet parking, concierge services, access lounge and even courtesy umbrellas or hot beverage service continue to highlight the upscale nature of the mall.
