History change

Construction of the mall begun in November 2011,[1] after an announcement that a new $250 million mall called the Fashion Outlets of Chicago would open in Rosemont, Illinois, near Interstate 284 and O'Hare International Airport.[2] It was planned to have 140[3] stores and open in 2012.[4] The mall opened on August 1, 2013.[5] In 2015, the mall's owner, Macerich, announced that it would make plans to expand the mall. The expansion required the demolition of the struggling Rosemont Theatre, which was competing with Chicago venues.[6] The Rosemont village gave approval to the 250,000 square feet expansion in 2018, but could not release more details about it.[7] That same year, 57.8 million people visited the mall.[8] The mall called off the project in 2020.[9]
