As a casualty of a bitter "mall war" with Ventura's PACIFIC VIEW, THE ESPLANADE lost both its anchor stores. The past-its-prime property 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.
