History[edit] 1970s[edit] A 1972 proposal for the shopping center and a redevelopment district arose out of plans to "refurbish San Diego's historic town plaza", Horton Plaza. Due to numerous setbacks and resistance from preservation groups, construction did not begin until 1982.[4] The plaza is named for Alonzo Horton, who was largely responsible for the location of downtown San Diego. 1980s - 1990s[edit] View of Horton Plaza Aerial view from 1,000 feet (300 m), 2011 Horton Plaza was the $140 million centerpiece of a downtown redevelopment project run by The Hahn Company, and is the first example of architect Jon Jerde's so-called "experience architecture".[citation needed] When it opened in August 1985, it was a risky and radical departure from the standard paradigm of mall design. Its mismatched levels, long one-way ramps, sudden dropoffs, dramatic parapets, shadowy colonnades, cul-de-sacs, and brightly painted facades create an architectural experience in dramatic contrast to the conventional wisdom of mall management. Conventional malls are designed to reduce ambient sources of psychological arousal, so the customers' attention is directed towards merchandise. By making the mall an attraction in itself, Jerde stood this model on its head.[citation needed] Jerde's project was based on Ray Bradbury's essay "The Aesthetics of Lostness".[5] In it he extolled the virtues of getting "safely lost" as adults inspired by side streets of Paris, London, or New York.[6] Horton Plaza was an instant financial success and while some credited it for revitalizing downtown San Diego, others said the revitalization benefitted the mall.[3] When originally built, the center housed the historic Jessop's Clock, built in 1907, which formerly stood on a sidewalk in front of the Jessop and Sons jewelry store in Downtown San Diego.[7] Weeks after the malls opening in 1985 a man committed suicide by jumping from a third story walkway in the mall.[8] In what was the first of five suicides to occur over the malls history.[9] In 1993, Sam Goody and Planet Hollywood announced would be opening this store in the former J. W. Robinson's site in 1994. In 1995, United Artists Theatres announced would be building 7 new screens into 7 screens to make it 14 in 1996. In 1998 the owners of the mall sold it to the Westfield Group, now the Westfield Corporation.[10] 2000s - 2010s - Now[edit] Planet Hollywood announced would be closing this location in 2001 and it replaced with Express. In 2005, Mervyn's, and Express, Inc. announced would be closing this location in early 2005. Both were replaced by Steve & Barry's University Sportswear and closed again in 2009. The Musicland Group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2006, and in February announced the closing of 226 Sam Goody and 115 Suncoast Motion Picture Company stores, and all Media Play locations. On January 11, 2011, the San Diego City Council unanimously approved a plan to raze the former Robinsons-May building on the north side of the mall to make way for a 37,000 square feet (3,400 m2) urban park, effectively enlarging the adjacent, historic Horton Plaza and Broadway Fountain.[11] Westfield partnered with the city to renovate and restore the area into an urban park and public gathering place called Horton Plaza Park. Westfield agreed to operate the park and schedule events, which could include concerts, movie screenings, and celebrations. Horton Plaza Park will have a 53,000 square foot venue, a Cabrill hitheater, an interactive pop-jet fountain and 23 foot tall color-changing statues.[12] The new Horton Plaza Park had its grand opening on May 4, 2016.[13] In 2012, FYE announced would be closing this Sam Goody flagship store location. In 2012, Regal Entertainment Group announced would be downsizing this theatre from 14 to 8. In 2012 Westfield said it would not renew the lease on the Jessop's Clock and gave its owners (descendants of the clock's builder Joseph Jessop) six months to find a new location for it.[14] However, the heirs had trouble finding an appropriate location, and as of 2016 the clock is still at Westfield Horton Plaza. In 2013 armed police descended on the mall after receiving a tip that fugitive Christopher Dorner was spotted in the mall. One man was arrested by police, though it later was revealed to be a case of mistaken identity.[15] June 24, 2016 Nordstrom announces closing of Horton Plaza store on August 26, 2016, Leaving one anchor (Macy's) left in the mall.[2] On November 22, 2016 a local woman who had previously been reported as suicidal shot herself in the middle of the crowded mall after leading police on a chase. [16] In July 2017 a shooting occurred at the mall in which an active duty Navy man was killed and cousin wounded after getting into a confrontation with another man.[17][18] Just three days after this incident another man committed suicide by jumping from the plazas balcony in an unrelated incident.[19]
