ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Crews are putting the final touches on a unique shopping complex in Rosemont, the first mall built in suburban Chicago in over two decades.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports that Fashion Outlets of Chicago opens Thursday. It's a fully-enclosed outlet mall with high-end retailers.

Industry experts say its close location to Chicago — less than 20 miles — makes it unique as outlet malls are usually further from city centers.

The village of Rosemont borrowed tens of millions of dollars for the project, which city officials say is money well spent. Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens says the mall will create 2,000 jobs and generate about $6 million each year in sales tax revenue.

Parking is free the first few months and the mall is accessible by public transportation
