How about beefing up security around this sorry mall so that people don't get robbed when they're trying to shop there? That might attract more customers if they make the mall a safer place.

Yawn. Until it's an H&M instead of H&R (Block), I'll be napping.

Great progress! Northlake Mall must have customers enthused and shopping and BUYING to lure in the tenants we really want most. Let's shop Northlake Mall first. Beryl

What is wrong with the leasing people at this mall! Until they bring it up to the standard of Perimeter Mall I'm staying away

Just more reasons for the people who actually live in this area to take their business to Perimeter Mall or Lenox Square.

My vote is for the mall to be torn down, and the land turned into a park.

I'll tell you what is wrong, they don't want this mall the strive. Simon also owns Lenox & Phipps. They certainly don't want to create competition for their star children. They could care less about the neighborhood they live in.

Simon once again trying to destroy the neighborhood they live in.

Yikes. This mall isn't THAT bad, even though it was much better a few years ago. It's getting worse by the day, though. New tenants you've never heard of (Crush? Designer Styles?) is usually a death knell.

How about giving it a try before you knock it down. This mall is not bag at all. As long as people put it down no one is going to want to shop there.

We used to shop at Northlake Mall 20-25 years ago. Won 't go there now. It has nothing we want or need.

I do try it from time to time. Always reminds me of how sad and sometimes scarey it is. It is BAD! And, it is pulling the whole neighborhood down with it.
