The only one I like is the Beverly Center. The concealed parking adds to the vibrancy of the mall and brings the building out to the curb so it doesn't feel cold and isolated and set back. It adds to the hustle of the neighborhood. All of the other malls notably Fox Hills has huge, I mean huge parking lots surrounding the building, so it feels removed from the area and becomes too bright in the summer with all of that concrete and open space. Massive amounts of parking should always be tucked away underground or within structures.

Is that Century City one old? I rollerbladed by it last time I was in Southland, but didn't go it. I really like Glendale Galleria. Is the Santa Monica Place in the process of getting torn down yet?

I also like this BC the only thing is parking sucks. They need to understand not everyone has a compact car. What is this world coming to......

Most of those are either undergoing renovation/reconstruction, or else will be in the near future.

(I mean: Beverly Center, Century City, Westside Pavilion, Santa Monica Place, Fox Hills.)

I do like the South Bay Galleria since it has such a timeless design.. Neon pink glass
elevators, indoor palms and DANCING FOUNTAINS!!

Why does everyone NOT THINK THE GROVE WILL LOOK LIKE THAT IN 10 YEARS!?!?! DANCING FOUNTAINS!!!


I do think the South Bay galleria should be preserved as is, so future generations can remember the brilliance of the late eighties.

Hopefully with the renovations with some of these mall. They don't forget to make more regular parking spot. Not everyone drives a pinto or Datsun.

My bad! It's because I rarely go to this mall so I thought it's in Gardena or somewhere in the border.

Anyway, The Del Amo mall is the largest in Southern Cali right?

^i'm not sure about that, i'd say the largest is the brea mall. that place is ridiculously huge.

you also forgot some malls in LA, theres a bunch in the valley topanga, warner center, and some more that i dont even know. in the main part of the city theres also the grove, macy's plaza, and hollywood and highland, which i consider to be a mall.

I think Del Amo is the largest in Califormia, I don't really like it though it's to long not very well tought out it seems like they just kept adding more to it. They are rebuilding a whole wing of it though turning it into an out door area, I think they might redo the rest of it in later sections.

I can't find any pictures of the original but I have to say so many of these malls have been ruined by renovation.
