Orange County will soon be the home to the nation’s largest Japanese supermarket. Regency Centers has leased nearly 14,000 square feet of retail space at Heritage Plaza in Irvine to Mitsuwa Marketplace.  The store will be one of six Mitsuwa stores in California. The market place will sell cuisine and groceries including numerous departments: high quality produce, meat, fish, house wares, take-out sushi and a food court with several renowned Japanese restaurants.
 
“The addition of Mitsuwa Marketplace further strengthens the tailored merchandise mix at Heritage Plaza,” says Gregg Sadowsky, Regency Centers’ senior vice president and market officer. “[It meets] the growing need for Asian products in the surrounding Irvine community.”

Irvine’s Heritage Plaza, owned by Regency Centers regencycenters.com, will soon be transformed. With an intended completion date of November 2011, a $10 million renovation project is in full swing.

In accordance with resident focus group comments and evaluations, as well as research data, the project will involve several developments. This includes new exterior façade design, upgraded architecture, new building sign displays, wider walkways, energy-efficient parking lot lighting, more outdoor seating and gathering areas and updated landscaping.
