New Mall Could Sprout On West Side Of Old Orchard

A developer is looking at knocking down an office tower to create 120,000 square feet of retail space, Crain's Chicago Business reports.

New Mall Could Sprout On West Side Of Old Orchard

A new retail space and residential tower could be built abutting Westfield Old Orchard Mall, replacing a six-story office tower.

Seth Singerman of Singerman Real Estate LLC is considering building a mixed-use facility with about 120,000 square feet of retail space and a residential tower on the property, which is west of Bloomingdale's, Crain's Chicago Business reports. 

Old Orchard has a track record of close to 100 percent occupancy, said Ann Tennes, marketing and communications director for the Village of Skokie. At the moment, there are two restaurant spaces vacant--the sites of the former Champps Americana and Wild & Greene--but the village anticipates those will be filled. 

The mall's location in the corridor between the city and the North Shore suburbs makes it a prime retail space.

Patch will continue to report on this story as more information becomes available.
