The future has arrived at one of the nation’s most renowned shopping centers within the heart of Chicago’s North Shore. Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) revealed a new, landmark vision for Westfield Old Orchard that will create a destination unlike anything else in Chicagoland – where life, work, shopping and play will perfectly intersect.


The redevelopment, which kicked off this year, will transform the beloved open-air center into a place that combines best-in-class retail, chef-led dining, entertainment, gourmet markets, health and wellness amenities and luxury residences – all alongside open green space and

outdoor lounges.


Continuing in 2023 and beyond, Westfield Old Orchard is dramatically enhancing its offerings to further curate unique and memorable experiences that will “surprise-and-delight” visitors.  Highlights include:

  • Redevelopment of the former Lord & Taylor space, which will offer new luxury home furnishings, top fashion, and entertainment options for shoppers to start in 2023.

  • Development of new residences, eateries, wellness facilities, and outdoor amenities is slated to break ground in 2024, and will open in phases starting in 2026.

  • By elevating the already exceptional experience at Old Orchard—with its tastefully designed outdoor environment inspired by the nearby Chicago Botanic Garden—the center will be a destination for everything from outdoor concerts to farmers markets to festivals, as well as a community gathering place for local residents and visitors alike. 

  • A variety of new luxury retail stores that include the recently-opened Bloomies and Louis Vuitton

 

Sustainability

Reinforcing Westfield Old Orchard’s commitment to sustainability, the center will continue to incorporate renewable energy, natural materials, biophilic design, and biodiversity to its building strategies. At the heart of the new development will be a public park and event space designed as the community’s focal point and social gathering place. Under a canopy of native trees and plants, paved pathways will wind through lush landscaping and comfortable seating, leading to an open-air plaza where local events, concerts, farmer’s markets, and festivals can take place.


 

 

Live, Work, Shop and Play

Westfield Old Orchard’s many new conveniences will make it a place to visit any time of day to accomplish daily tasks like shopping for groceries, working out at the gym, visiting a variety of restaurants or family entertainment options, stopping at the bank or pharmacy, or even making a trip to the doctor’s office.
