For many years Randhurst was a shopping and entertainment destination for the northwest suburbs and the redevelopment will return it to that status.
Mt. Prospect, IL (Vocus) May 15, 2010
The redevelopment of Randhurst Mall continues with the ground breaking for the new state of the art AMC Randhurst-12. This follows the successful openings of Jersey Mike’s, Five Guys, Chipotle Mexican Grill and T Mobile and the announcements of the lease signings of The Sports Authority, Pei Wei Asian Diner, PNC Bank, PetSmart, and The Hampton Inn.
“There is a resurgence in the Chicago real estate market and the successful development of Randhurst Village is a perfect example,” according to Brett Hutchens, President, Casto Southeast Realty Services LLC. Mr. Hutchens added, “For many years Randhurst was a shopping and entertainment destination for the northwest suburbs and the redevelopment will return it to that status.”
The public is invited to the groundbreaking ceremony which will occur at 9:00 am, Tuesday, May 18th at the site of the new theatre. Representatives from AMC Theatres, Casto, JP Morgan and the Village of Mt. Prospect will be in attendance. The approximately 2,000 seat theatre will anchor the Mainstreet section of Randhurst Village and will replace the existing 16-plex at Randhurst.
AMC Randhurst-12 will be the company’s first LEED certified theatre incorporating several elements of environmentally sustainable design ranging from the use of locally sourced materials for construction, energy conservation through the use of efficient mechanical systems with no harmful discharge of CFCs into the environment, and water conservation through the use of low-flow fixtures among several other sustainable initiatives.

- Comfortable lounge-style seating areas in each auditorium for families and groups to enjoy their entertainment experience;
