Great aerial view of one of Sonoma County's classic shopping destinations, Coddingtown Mall (now partly owned by Simon Property Group, Inc.). The mall is currently anchored by JCPenney, Macy's, and Gottschalk's, and is still a beautiful place to shop even today, according to our resident Northern California malls expert, BIGMallrat, who noted:
"Coddingtown Mall has the most beautiful ceiling I've ever seen in an enclosed shopping center. It reflects the redwood surroundings of Santa Rosa.
The mall is light and bright and really pleasant. The interior corridors are wide and easy to stroll. You can tell this was an open air center at one time because the floor is noticeable higher in some areas."
