Otay Ranch Town Center in 2006

Otay Ranch Town Center in 2006

Here is a little throw back Thursday for you. I took this photo back in 2006 when they were almost ready to open the Otay Ranch Town Center. They had a media day and invited all the media out to see the new mall and talk about all the great things coming. In 2006 there wasn’t much in the area. Pretty much everything south of the mall was empty. Flash forward to now and it is completely different. Not only has the mall changed, but the area around it.

I have a ton of old photos from Chula Vista, Eastlake and Bonita so stay tuned cause there is plenty more coming.


I have lived in this great community for over 30 years. In that time I have seen so many changes both good and bad. My goal is to promote this city and all of the good that goes on here. There are so many local events, small businesses and community groups making this city even better. You can always find me at the events taking photos. This site is a passion project of mine and I want to use this platform to get the community engaged. Get out and enjoy Chula Vista and make sure to follow me on all the socials for more!
