MALL WARS: Just a little over a year ago, developers of the South Bay Pavilion in Carson were getting all the attention. Ikea, the home furnishing giant, opened in the former Broadway store in what was a big boost to revitalizing the mall. The city, in fact, chipped in an $8.9-million loan to help the retailer remodel its new digs. Things aren't so peachy anymore.

A year ago, retailers at the South Bay Pavilion at Carson thought the $12.5-million renovation of the mall, which included the addition of an Ikea home furnishings store, would make their dreams of increased sales come true. Ikea, mall operators said, would draw thousands more shoppers to a mall freshly painted with pastels and made more bright and airy with skylights.

Investor Fred Sands, who once ran one of the country's largest residential sales brokerages, is adding to his growing commercial real estate portfolio by buying the large SouthBay Pavilion shopping center in Carson. In a sign of how much real estate values have declined since the recession began, Sands' company Vintage Capital Group is expected to complete its purchase of the mall near the 405 Freeway today for $50 million. That's well below the combined $34.

The City of Carson is negotiating with a group of developers who want to construct a factory outlet mall, Metro 2000, on a 157-acre dump site adjacent to the 405 Freeway (South Bay Edition, Around the South Bay, Dec. 12). The site is seriously contaminated, and the state has not approved the site for any construction. The waste buried there is a threat to the underground water. The cost of cleanup will be staggering. That is why that land, in such a prime location, is not developed.

With the hope that it will swell city coffers with tax revenue, the Carson Mall, reborn as South Bay Pavilion at Carson, officially reopened Wednesday with its much-ballyhooed new tenant--furniture super store IKEA. The grand opening after several months of renovation marks what developers and city officials hope will be a turning point in the troubled history of the mall, which has struggled to make a profit in the 18 years it has been open.

Discoveries of devices that appeared to be pipe bombs forced evacuations in Carson and Long Beach on Thursday. The South Bay Pavilion in Carson was evacuated for several hours after one device was found in a restroom. A Sheriff's Department bomb squad detonated the device at a nearby field, said Sgt. Ron Spear. He said that tests will be performed to determine if it contained explosives. A janitor discovered the device about 2:50 p.m. when he was cleaning the restroom, Spear said.
