Five Lagunas Breaks Ground at Former Mall

Last week, Merlone Geier Partners and the City of Laguna Hills broke ground on the new Five Lagunas Center on the site of the former Laguna Hills Mall. Situated adjacent to the 5 freeway, the project’s name was inspired by its location in the midst of Laguna Hills, Laguna Beach, Laguna Nigel, Laguna Woods and Laguna Canyon. Merlone Geier Partners imagines Five Lagunas as an urban village, providing a Downtown-like experience in a master-planned community.
