Here we see an aerial plan of the two SOUTH COAST PLAZA malls. The original complex, completed in 1967 and expanded between 1972-1979 and in 1986 and 2000, is seen on the right. Its CRYSTAL COURT / SOUTH COAST PLAZA WEST annex (1986) occupies the upper left corner of the photo.

Another Bing's-eye view, this time zeroing in on SOUTH COAST PLAZA WEST. The Bridge of the Gardens, a pedestrian-only connecting conduit, was built between February 1999 and September 2000.
