Fountain Square of Waukegan



Location: Waukegan, Illinois

Notable: Total redevelopment of former Lakehurst Mall Shopping Center

Fountain Square of Waukegan is The Shaw Company’s successful redevelopment of the former Lakehurst Mall. With the original development having fallen into disuse and disrepair, we devised a bold plan to renew the property and take advantage of its prime location. After gaining the political and financial support of the City of Waukegan, we oversaw the complete demolition of the shopping center, as well as the total removal and relocation of all site utilities. We regraded 98 acres, reconfigured internal roadways, and added new landscaping, monument and tenant signage, and two distinctive water features to establish a completely new identity for the site.

The result of The Shaw Company’s vision is a new and thriving mixed-use development that has attracted many nationally known businesses. 


The development is anchored by a 204,000 square foot Walmart Supercenter. Other national and regional corporations who have invested in locations at Fountain Square include:

  • Chipotle
  • Chili’s
  • Fifth Third Bank
  • Fashion Bug
  • T-Mobile

  • Chase Bank
  • Payless Shoes

  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Bank of America
  • L.A. Fitness
  • Jimmy John’s
