CAN THEY SAVE THE NORTHLINE MALL AREA?

CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN ON THE FACILITY FROM THE 60’S!

Northline Mall opened nearly 45 years ago as one of Houston’s premier weather-controlled malls. It soon will become the bayou city’s newest urban, open-air shopping destinations.
The 1960’s shopping mall is being replaced with a contemporary and more popular commons center. Situated off of I-45 just outside Loop 610, the prominent sign bearing Northline Mall’s name will be replaced on Monday, June 18 at noon by a construction crane to reveal the center’s new name: Northline Commons. Northline is located at 4400 North Freeway, 77022 on the corner of Crosstimbers and I-45.
The Northline Commons center will provide northwest and inner-loop residents a new destination to run all of their errands. Houstonians will be able to eat, shop, bank, and even get their hair cut, all at Northline’s convenient open-air center.
The mall’s renovation is well underway at its site just north of downtown. The retail center remains open for shoppers but will be completely transformed into the new Northline Commons center for the fall of 2008.

QUESTION: Do you think what’s left of Northline Mall can be saved or has the shopping center’s reputation been ruined from past problems. Also, will you shop there when the doors re-open?
