Otay Ranch Town Center

For the South Bay area, it completely redefines the manner in which public gathering spaces blend with fashionable, fun stores, dining and entertainment.
Visitors walk down urbane open-air shop-lined sidewalks with on-street parking, outdoor cafes and grand fountains. A pet-friendly setting and adjacent doggie park welcome dogs and a centrally located “chalk garden” are available for children. The Otay Ranch Town Center is a place that people want to play, gather, linger, shop and be entertained.
This mall offers over 150 different shops, a state-of-the-art movie theatre, and many different restaurants to choice from. There is also a spacious dog park that welcomes dogs of all sizes to play and have fun. Many shopper will notice a doggie-bowl layed out in front of every store for those dogs wanting a slash of water.
