A Pullman Company railcar manufacturing previously stood in the location where the mall is now.

The mall's construction began in the fall of 1986, and its central court opened in May 1987.

In contrast to many malls of the time, Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets was built in the city's center rather than next to a freeway, and it was an outdoor mall rather than an indoor one.

The 11th Street station on the South Shore Line is close to the mall.
