Hawthorn Mall, formerly Westfield Hawthorn, is a shopping mall in Vernon Hills, Illinois. It was developed by Urban Investment and Development Co, and anchor stores Sears and Marshall Fields as part of New Century Town, a community with 5,000 apartments planned at the time. Construction of the mall began in May, 1972  and was completed at a cost of $45 million. By September 10, 1973, the building was complete and the first stores- Marshall Field's and fifteen specialty shops- had their grand opening. Hawthorn was originally constructed without a food court. Westfield Group acquired it in 2002. Westfield Group sold 80% interest in mall as of December 2015.
