City officials say a recovery plan for the ailing Huntington Center Mall will begin in summer 1998 with a new design expected. Los Angeles-based Macerich Co. bought the mall in late 1996 and disclosed plans for an open-air shopping, dining and entertainment plaza, much different than the existing 1960s-era enclosed design. The multimillion-dollar project is described as a combination of the Irvine Spectrum and Fashion Island.

Developers hoping to renovate the Huntington Center have scrapped plans to turn the troubled shopping area into an upscale Italian village motif to rival the Block at Orange or Irvine Spectrum. Ezralow Retail Properties LLC announced Tuesday it no longer plans to redevelop the 63-acre parcel to include a cobblestone plaza, specialty shops, restaurants and a multiplex theater that would be called the Crossings at Huntington Beach.

City officials have confirmed that the Macerich Co., the nationwide company that owns most of the aging Huntington Center, plans to pack up and leave. For the city, the firm's anticipated departure marks a bitter finale to a relationship once filled with promise. Until late last year, Macerich offered a tantalizing plan to convert the indoor mall into an open-air entertainment plaza similar to the Irvine Spectrum.

Regional mall operator Macerich Co. said Thursday it has purchased and will renovate the long-suffering Huntington Center Mall, one of the first covered malls in California. The new owner plans to tear down the vacant Broadway store at the mall and build a 20-screen, 95,000-square-foot theater complex, more restaurants and specialty shops. So far no new tenants have been lined up, but the company said it is in negotiations with several theater operators.
