So far the plans are known to involve …
• Replacement of flooring on all levels
• Upgrades to seating area
• Majority work on the first floor or main floor
Woodfield opened with 59 stores on September 9, 1971
Lord & Taylor opened along with 50 additional new retailers in a new wing in 1973. Woodfield Mall was the largest shopping mall in the United States in 1973.
Twenty-three stores were added in 1991 — the 20-year anniversary.
The Nordstrom store and a new wing that included a larger Lord & Taylor opened in 1996.
Management of Woodfield mall by Taubman Centers was taken over by Simon Property Group on January 1, 2013.
Construction can begin at any time as a construction permit for the project has already been issued by the Village of Schaumburg. Village Board approval is not necessary because the construction plans do not involved expansion.
