The owners of Plaza Pasadena are hoping to add a gourmet food market, movie theaters and sports club to the indoor mall.
Trizec Hahn officials said Wednesday that they are proposing a massive face-lift for the mall that would eliminate its interior and have storefronts facing the streets. The firm's plan calls for dividing the ailing mall into three separate units. At the east end, an upscale grocery store along with restaurants would replace the J.C. Penney. In the center of the mall, multi-screen movie theaters with seats for 4,000 would be built on the second floor. And at the mall's west end, plans call for a sports club with a swimming pool and a climbing wall.
