The upscale open air shopping mall, Oakbrook Center certainly has seen some changes in the last few years. It has been far too long since an update on the current renovations of the former Sears anchor...more of a reason to document the current progress at the mall. Much of the former Sears has been demolished and the new structure is being constructed to form a new kids entertainment venue called Kidzania and future shopping choices...as well as what will be the new downsized Sears store opening this fall. I will not go into detail about Sears returning to Oakbrook Mall...if they do, the store wont last long...I imagine the lease will be sold off before the store is even built so another tenant can immediately be added to the new construction.
Here is my post featuring Sears as it is liquidating in summer 2017.
Here is my post of Sears in August 2017.
Other updates and pictures can be viewed on Trip to the Malls Facebook page.
New construction in the North direction facing toward Rt-83
Pottery Barn is still open and this wing is toward the Nordstrom.
There is an existing L.L.Bean in this photo that will be moving into the new development according the the contractors website.
Proof that Sears promises to return to Oakbrook....I can't wait to shop there.
Looking in the distance is the AMC that was built in late 2015- early 2016.
