Brookfield Property Partners plans a massive overhaul of the Northbrook Court shopping mall that could see the Macy’s store torn down and replaced with apartments, a food hall and more.

Brookfield said it submitted plans to the village that include “a modern, open-air redevelopment with a host of new retailers, residential, restaurants as well as a cutting-edge food hall,” according to the Northbrook Star.

The plan also includes a plaza that could be used for special events, the company said.

Village officials termed the plans “very preliminary.”

Changes at Northbrook Court have been in the works since January 2017, when then-owner GGP talked about renovating the mall to include fewer anchors and more non-traditional uses. Northbrook officials recently approved a plan to open a Hi-Five Sports Clubs location in the mall.

Macy’s sold its space at the mall for $25 million in January 2018 to GGP, which was bought out by Brookfield in July for $15 billion.

The Northbrook Court proposal follows a blueprint Brookfield laid out last month to repurpose poorly performing malls by adding housing, office space or hotels. [Northbrook Star] — John O’Brien
