After years of preparation, The Corners of Brookfield opened its first eight stores to the public in the Town of Brookfield in April 2017.
Since then, the new shopping center has continued to add tenants. The 750,000-square-foot mixed-use development east of North Barker Road between I-94 and West Bluemound Road includes first-to-Wisconsin brands Von Maur department store and L.L. Bean. Other tenants include Café Hollander, CycleBar, BelAir Cantina, Kendra Scott, lululemon and Sendik’s.
In summer 2017, Mandel Group Inc. opened 244 luxury apartments at the development, and Silverspot Cinema plans to open a nine-screen cinema in 2019.
The Corners has become the town’s downtown district, hosting community events including live music, family movie nights, parades and marching bands, outdoor yoga and a 5K race. A holiday tree lighting drew more than 5,000 people.
