Just Another Day In SouthLA

Carson Revisits Upscale Outlet Mall Idea


So with Carson losing to Inglewood in the NFL stadium war, Carson is left with 157 acres of empty land, thus they are revisiting their initial idea to transform the once landfill into a 500,000-square-foot retail center with 150 “high-end” stores. The mall would only take up about one-fifth of the space that the enormous site has to offer, though the city wants the outlet mall to entice other developers to the site.  The only other outlet mall in LA is the Citadel off the 5 in East Los Angeles.

Carson City Council begin exclusive negotiations with Macerich Real Estate Co., the developer that built Santa Monica Place,.  to transform the former landfill into a 405 freewa-facing outlet mall.

An outlet mall had been proposed, along with a slew of other non-stadium alternatives, after the NFL decided earlier this year to move to Inglewood instead of Carson. Carson spent a lot of money to clean up the site and continues to drop about $450,000 a month on maintaining and cleaning it.
