The $7-million renovation of the MainPlace/Santa Ana shopping mall is now more than half complete, an expansion that will add a new wing with 32,500 square feet of leaseable space.
The construction will add 20 new stores by the time it is completed in November. In addition, a 150,000-square-foot May Co. department store is planned to open next spring. The May Co. will be the mall's fourth anchor store, joining Nordstrom, Bullocks and Robinson's. The expansion will increase the size of the mall, one of the newest in Orange County, to about 200 retail establishments.
