The 2012-2013 refurbishment added new landscaping, fountains and other amenities. Meanwhile, two empty anchors were divided into inline store spaces. The first level of the old I. Magnin (in dark gray) was retenanted in the mid-'90s (with newer stores opening in 2008). The Saks / Bloomingdale's Home (in light gray) sat vacant for over a year before it was sectioned into six tenant spaces.


In late 2016, a renovation of the northeast store block was completed. It installed The District at Oakbrook Center, an upscale food court, in gutted Upper Level space. The new AMC Oakbrook Center 12 multiplex (shown in light gray) had also been built. Following these developments was a downsizing of the 3-level Sears into its basement floor. This project was completed in mid-2018.
