Graycor Completes $30 Million Renovation for General Growth Properties at Oakbrook Center

Graycor completed a major two-phase renovation project at GGP's Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook, Ill. Oakbrook Center is one of the largest open-air shopping centers in the U.S. with more than two million square feet and over 160 retail stores and restaurants. The renovation included enhancing the shopping ambience with new pedestrian paths, updated navigational graphics, modern seating, improved lighting, vibrant landscaping and installation of water bodies and fountains throughout the outdoor mall area.  The mall and all its stores remained open during the renovation project.  Graycor's "Live Environment" work approach was employed for this project and enabled Graycor to implement a detailed phasing and logistics plan that supported day and night shifts without disrupting the owner's operations. Graycor worked with Omniplan (Architects) and StudioOutside (Landscape Architects) on the renovation project.
