What began almost 40 years ago as the Plaza Seven Shopping Center showed the first signs of metamorphosis in 1984 into “Eden Center”. In 1996, a major transformation took place when the center’s owners spent millions on a 32,400 square foot addition called Saigon West and renovation of the existing center.
The Clock Tower
The Eden Center Clock Tower, an exact replica of downtown Saigon, was erected as a reminder of the home away from home for the thousands of immigrants who settled in the Washington DC metropolitan area after the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. Today, the younger generation also holds Eden Center dear, and frequent Eden Center each and every weekend. The large parking lot often fills up on the weekend and weekday afternoons. An elaborate Lion Arch was added as a gateway entrance off busy Wilson Boulevard to honor both Vietnamese and Chinese cultures that are reflected in both Eden Center’s shops and its customers.
