Designed on 165 acres for the Forest City Development Corporation, Victoria Gardens was an attempt to create, at once, a downtown for the Los Angeles suburb of Rancho Cucamonga. This downtown commercial district occupied 12 city blocks and 1.3 million square feet. It was seen as a radical departure from conventional shopping malls, as it was built with through streets and sidewalks to create a pedestrian-friendly destination.
