Northbrook Court Shopping Center


Situated in the Village with easy access from I-94 and I-294, Northbrook Court is a destination for premier shopping on Chicago’s North Shore. The shopping center is one of the largest contributors to the Village’s economy with over 90 businesses located in one convenient area serving visitors on a daily basis. While the center has undergone minor changes over the years, most recently including the installation of a solar array on the roof top, the shopping center will now undergo its largest redevelopment since it was originally constructed.
