The Sooes District
was founded in 207 F.R. as residents from E. Roseville ran out of room for housing.
Due to the distance from downtown, a medium sized mall area was constructed so that residents didn't have to travel all the way to downtown for shopping.
As it turns out, the area became extremely popular and soon the land leading up to the Redwood Forest was cramped with newer, modern housing.
So we return to the main Redwood exit off SR3, except this time we will wander to the west and examine the Soees Mall Suburban District.
The exit dumps travelers off near the Hecht's and Nordstrom. The easy highway access has helped fonder the mall's success.
Some of the strip malls that make up the complex.
The Soees Mall sits right near the edge of the South End Industrial Park. The Soees Train Station can be seen here.
The suburbs developed heavily by the mall, causing houses to be build practically on top of each other.
The jammed in suburbs North of the mall. Here we can also see where the city of Roseville ends and Riverside begins (the cities employ different housing styles, as do the suburbs). The two cities are currently in a tug of war over who will formally annex the Soees district. Recent polls show that 64% of Soees residents would like to establish Soees as its own City, 22% would like to become a part of Roseville, 13% would like to become a part of Riverside, and 1% have no opinion on the matter.
