Victoria Gardens (shopping Center)
Victoria Gardens is a pedestrian-oriented, open-air, mixed-use town center in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Located North of Foothill Boulevard between Day Creek Boulevard and Etiwanda Avenue by the Interstate 15 freeway, the 147-acre (0.59 km2) project consists of residential areas, office space, retail stores, public plazas, a movie theater, and a civic cultural arts center. It officially opened October 28, 2004.
The Victoria Gardens Cultural Center, which features the Rancho Cucamonga Public Library, a performing arts center, and a multi-use reception hall, is owned and operated by the city of Rancho Cucamonga and sits north of the shopping center between the two parking structures.
In 2006, the former Robinsons-May store was converted to a Macy's Men's and Home Store to complement the existing Macy's. Unlike other cases where both anchors existed in one mall, Macy's did not move into the former Robinson's-May store and close its original location, because of the fact that both anchors were new and the original Macy's store was not built as a Broadway store.
The rest of the mixed-use development is owned by Forest City Enterprises.
There is also Victoria Gardens shopping centre in inner-suburban Richmond. San Tarascio recently paid $120 million to assume full control of further developments around the Victoria Gardens site.
The mall increased the city's sales tax income by 44% in its first year of operation.

Famous quotes containing the words gardens and/or victoria:
“Have We not made the earth as a cradle and the mountains as pegs? And We created you in pairs, and We appointed your sleep for a rest; and We appointed night for a garment, and We appointed day for a livelihood. And We have built above you seven strong ones, and We appointed a blazing lamp and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants, and gardens luxuriant.”
—QurAn. The Tiding, 78:6-16, trans. by Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
“Sometimes my wife complains that shes overwhelmed with work and just cant take one of the kids, for example, to a piano lesson. Ill offer to do it for her, and then shell say, No, Ill do it. We have to negotiate how much I trespass into that mother roleits not given up easily.”
