Opened in the Fall of 2008 in the northwest Chicago suburb of South Barrington, this 600,000-square-foot open-air town center will feature an upscale mix of fashion apparel brands, home furnishings retailers, restaurants and a luxury cinema – all within an architectural and stylistic context that evokes the historical ambiance and charm of retail shopping center icons such as Market Square in Lake Forest, Illinois.
Occupying the site of a former tree nursery, this 86-acre parcel in South Barrington will feature the lush landscaping of its namesake. The architectural detailing at The Arboretum celebrates an inspired fusion of Midwestern sensibilities and fresh, contemporary spaces. Natural gathering areas, abundant green space and a pedestrian-friendly layout contribute to the feel of a true neighborhood environment. The result is a compelling mix of crafted detail and energized elegance; of comfortable, attractive surroundings and outstanding retail, dining and entertainment destinations. The Arboretum is a place where local residents and visitors alike will come together to shop, dine and enjoy themselves in comfort, quality and style.
