The Block at Orange

The Block at Orange is an 800,000 SF Entertainment Retail center in Orange, California. DAIQ conceived the plan as two major “streets” anchored by five public “squares”. The Block creates a unique urban entertainment neighborhood with a variety of shopping and dining experiences taking full advantage of the opportunities provided by the climate and culture of southern California. The heart of the project is “restaurant row,” a narrow pedestrian street at the central axis of the project linking the primary entry plaza and the “great square” space framed by the cinema complex. Year-round cafe seating enlivens the street experience. The building architecture and exterior public area finishes designed by DAIQ are complemented by a creative graphics program and landscaping.
