The Moreno Valley Mall at Towngate is a shopping mall located on the former site of the Riverside International Raceway in Moreno Valley, California.[1]

Developed by Homart Development Company, the initial anchor stores in 1992 were Sears, J.C. Penney's, May Company California, and Harris Department Stores and had 140 specialty stores.[2]

In the early years competition for tenants divided prospects between competing developers.[3] In September 1996 the City confirmed that lower than anticipated revenues would result in a shortfall estimated to extend the payback period of the $13m infrastructure loan to an estimated 2026 with the loan peaking at $19.5m. Also, the mall was then valued at $66 million, far less than its original valuation of $107 million.[4]

Moreno Valley Mall directly contracts with the local Police Service as well as private security firm for security services.[5]
