FULFILLS TRAVELER'S SHOPPING DESIRES
Irvine Spectrum Center is one of Orange County's most unique shopping destinations. When it first opened in 1995, it was a leader in the retail industry for the development of outdoor lifestyle center shopping concepts. The Center has evolved into a must-see attraction for shopping, dining and entertainment for visitors from throughout the world.

About The Irvine Company
Irvine Spectrum Center is owned and managed by The Irvine Company, an internationally renowned real estate development company known for its award-winning master-planned communities, its vast portfolio of high-quality investment properties, and its leadership in conservation and natural resource management. Founded in 1864, the Irvine Company's growing real estate portfolio encompasses office, apartment, retail and resort holdings located throughout California's premier markets, including assets in San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles counties, and holdings in Northern California. As a steward of some of America's most beautiful and scientifically important open space and parklands, the company has donated to Orange County more than half of the historic 93,000-acre Irvine Ranch in Orange County-50,000 acres-to permanently preserve these lands. The U.S. Department of Interior and the State of California have designated these parklands as "Natural Landmarks," one of the most prestigious land preservation designations. The privately held, diversified company traces its roots to the 1860s with the formation of The Irvine Ranch® from Mexican and Spanish land grants.
