  1. 1515 Lake Cook Road – Northbrook Court Redevelopment Master Plan

Brookfield Properties, the owner of Northbrook Court since 1995, presented a Conceptual Master Plan for the Redevelopment of Northbrook Court on April 25, 2023 at the Village Board meeting. In the presentation, the vision and planning principals for redevelopment of the 100 +/- acre site described a retail & dining destination for the North Shore Region, preservation of Northbrook Court's role as a commercial anchor for the Village, integration of thoughtfully planned residential to create a mixed-use neighborhood, incorporation of open space, parks, walkability, and neighborhood amenities connecting with the community.

On May 16, 2023 the Village of Northbrook and Brookfield Properties have entered into a non-binding Pre-Development Agreement which outlines in greater detail what is proposed as part of the redevelopment and details the potential public-private partnership between the Village and Brookfield Properties which will be the subject of discussion starting in June 2023 and is scheduled to conclude in September. See the agreement here, which includes the public meeting dates for consideration of all elements of the proposed redevelopment.
