Pacific City retail and food hub hopes to be luxury alternative to Huntington Beach’s Main Street

Pacific City: The $135 million lifestyle hub on Pacific Coast Highway provides expansive views of Huntington Beach’s enviable open coastline. It has been in construction for more than a year. The first wave of restaurants and shops will open in November

South Coast Plaza has Bloomingdale’s. Fashion Island has Nieman Marcus.

So how will Orange County’s next luxury shopping center, Pacific City, compete with rivals?
