Horton Plaza Mall is gone :(
Jul. 2021 • Family
This once was a vibrant "mall" but no longer exists. The whole area has been fenced off and according to the locals surrounding this area, Horton Plaza has been in "remodel" status for over 2 years now. This whole place is CLOSED. We parked nearby at Spreckels Theater not realizing this. We walked around the area thinking maybe the area we were in was just closed off due to construction, thinking we would find an opening somewhere to find some shops open. Nope. That's when we finally went into some of the nearby businesses to talk to people and they told us stories about what some of the plans were for this place. It's really sad that Horton Plaza didn't make it!

PS we are on vacation for 2 weeks and our goal was to just drive around San Diego and find fun things to do & not look online for things to do. Welp, Google would have helped in this case!! 🤣

Don't Waste Your Time

Well, the Westfield Horton Plaza may have been nice at one time; however, it is now an empty shell with a fitness center and grocery store. It was actually eerie walking into the place with so many abandoned businesses. The actual plaza outside had a lovely fountain and sculptures lit at night.

I went to gym last night, I went into the gym inside of the mall, I had a very important issue that I needed to deal with at 24 hour fitness and I had one of the worst experiences of my life I was abused by a person name "Q Harris", Attached is a photo.... This guy is a mental emotional and almost a physical abuser as he did threaten me, this person is excessively prejudiced....

Sorry it is in the process of being remodeled and turned into high tech offices. Don't waste time going. When it finally reopens in 2021 it is supposed to have lower level stores and restaurants. Until then, wait for a review.

In the middle of a vibrant area in downtown San Diego
Nov. 2019
Lots of attractions and things to do all around this large, interesting structure. A terrific Macys store anchors what should be the beating heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. We spent time and money there. But there is a need for more 'experiential', themed businesses like the theater, Jimbos Natural food store, the juice places and the 24 Hour Fitness center which is a large well run and clean operation with a stream of patrons. Security is in evidence especially at night so why shouldn't there be more entertainment venues in this place? It sits in the midst of a part of town that has many such businesses that appear to be doing well. We have gone there two or three times already and plan to go back to shop Jimbos. This is a good spot for health related businesses like The Joint or fun oriented Dave & Busters, etc., etc. Would love to see it develop under modern management. It could be a jewel that also serves the community.

Demise of Another Mall
Nov. 2019
I was in the Gas Lamp District and saw the Macy's and decided to stop by. The parking lot across the street was extremely expensive--something like $2 for every 6 minutes. Anyway we left through one of he rear exits of Macy's and discovered the mall is pretty much deserted. It was kind of creepy so we didn't linger to see if other stores remained open. This is a shame. It looked like it once was an awesome mall. Loved the architecture. Wonder what happened. Great Macy's though.

Deserted with homelesses in the restrooms
Oct. 2019
All the shops are closed, except Macy, 24 Hours fitness and another one. It’ s deserted. I wanted to use the restroom but there were 2 homelesses and I had to turn out because of the stink.

This, once-awesome mall in downtown San Diego is now a ghost town!
Jul. 2019
Stayed right next door and realized the entire mall, with the exception of Macy's and Levi's, is vacant! Such a Gas-lamp icon, now gone! We were told that the owners waited for all the leases to expire and will re-vamp it, somehow. I was expecting it to be leveled and more high-rise condos built. Hopefully, not! It was just creepy walking thru the multi-level, once thriving mall, now eerily quiet and unoccupied. Looks like a perfect refuge for the S.D. homeless, if they don't do something soon.

What a shame...once vibrant, now nearly empty.
Sep. 2019
This was once a place to do some light shopping. It is nearly empty, full of homeless people, and not a welcoming environment. I hope the city steps it up and rehabilitates the area because it is currently scary.
