As a casualty of its bitter "Mall War" with Ventura's PACIFIC VIEW MALL, THE ESPLANADE lost both its anchor stores. The past its prime shopping facility was bulldozed in the summer of 2000 and replaced by ESPLANADE CENTER, an open-air power plaza.

ESPLANADE CENTER was implemented in two stages. Stores in Phase One began opening in September 2001. A 136,000 square foot Home Depot, part of Phase Two, debuted in February 2002.
