The first level of the old I. Magnin had been subdivided in the mid-'90s, with newer stores opening in 2008. As part of the mall's 2012-2013 refurbishment, a vacant Saks / Bloomingdale's Home building was divided into six inline spaces. Moreover, a section of the middle floor of Sears was partitioned into PB Kids and West Elm stores.


In late 2016, a major renovation of the northeast store block was completed. It installed The District at Oakbrook Center, an upscale food court, in gutted Level 2 space. A new movie megaplex, the AMC Oakbrook Center 12, was also built. These projects were followed by a downsizing of the 3-level Sears into its basement floor, which was completed in 2019. The mall's Lord & Taylor closed for good in January of the same year.
