Grove, Americana developer pulls mall plans in Santa Anita

May 21, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A well-known developer has withdrawn plans for a $500 million mall at the Santa Anita Race Track.

A spokesperson for Rick Caruso told the Daily News that the project is being scrapped due to complications in acquiring the land and a legal challenge from a nearby rival mall.

Caruso is known for developing The Grove shopping center and the Americana at Brand in Glendale.

He is also considering a run for Los Angeles mayor in 2013.
