The former Carson's anchor store at Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL will be redeveloped for mixed-use

Shuttered Carson’s at Yorktown Center to be Repurposed as Mixed-Use

Pacific Retail Capital Partners (PRCP) and Synergy Construction announced Tuesday the acquisition and redevelopment of the former Carson’s anchor store at Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL. 

The 12-acre property, located at 230 Yorktown Center, will be co-developed by PRCP and Synergy, with new luxury multifamily buildings, a park area that will be used as a communal outdoor environment and newly energized dining and retail offerings. 

“As department store buildings around the country become obsolete, communities look to companies like Synergy and Pacific Retail for the next vision for retail malls,” said Phil Domenico, principal, Synergy Construction.  

Construction on the two-phase project is anticipated to begin in Spring 2023 with an estimated completion of phase 1 in Spring, 2025 subject to final planning review by the Village of Lombard. 

One of Yorktown Center’s original anchors was Carson Pirie Scott, which enjoyed a 50-year run before closing its doors in 2018.
