Community Update: Piper Preschool at Woodbridge Village Center

November 17, 2021 - December 31, 2022

Community update: Reinvestment continues at Woodbridge Village Center

Over the past several years, Irvine Company Retail Properties has undertaken a significant
reinvestment plan to revitalize Woodbridge Village Center, which has served as a cherished
community gathering place since 1979.

This reinvestment has included more than $30 million in renovations to the property. The
outdoor gathering spaces have been significantly expanded, adding a 1-acre plaza with
comfortable outdoor furniture, new climbing features for children, three larger-than- life ceramic
frogs and commanding views of Woodbridge’s North Lake.

The center’s top-to-bottom makeover has added numerous new stores, restaurants and
community services to ensure the retailers and service providers meet the current needs of the
community. This updated merchant mix and upgraded experience has rekindled interest and
customer visits to the center.

As part of our ongoing reinvestment effort, we are pleased to share that Irvine Company Retail
Properties has entered into an agreement with Piper Preschool to establish a new early
childhood education offering. Piper Preschool would replace the former Ruby’s Diner and
Barnes & Noble, which will close in January 2022. A preschool at this location is consistent with
land-use approvals within the center, and plans are now on file with the city to ensure
consistency with those plans.

Over the past few years, the center has become a hub where families have access to
enrichment programs in science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Piper Preschool is a
natural addition and will add to the early childhood education opportunities available to
Woodbridge families, bringing new customers to the center daily, benefiting the center as a

We are also excited to share that the much beloved AMC Classic Woodbridge 5 Theatre has
renewed its lease, and together we will be making significant reinvestments to upgrade the
experience for guests. While details regarding the AMC Theatre remodel are not yet available,
we will share the latest news with the community.

In the meantime, we hope to see you at the center ... for lunch or dinner at Sessions West Coast
Deli, The Pizza Press or the all-new dPot Shabu Shabu. Perhaps enjoy an after-dinner treat at
Yogurtland, The Lost Bean or Cha for Tea. A full list of restaurants and entertainment options is
