Northlake Mall is a major shopping mall northeast of Atlanta in northern DeKalb County, Georgia, United States. The mall was owned and managed by Simon Property Group. In 2014, the ownership of the 43-year-old mall was spun-off into a newly formed real estate investment trust, Washington Prime Group[1] and in 2015, Washington Prime Group completed acquisition of Glimcher Realty Trust, forming WP Glimcher. In February 2016, the mall was sold to Texas-based ATR Corinth Partners.[2]


Northlake Mall opened in 1971 with original anchor stores Davison's, JCPenney, and Sears. Northlake was the fifth mall to open in DeKalb County, following Columbia Mall (later Avondale Mall) in 1964, North DeKalb Mall in 1965, South DeKalb Mall in 1968, and Perimeter Mall in 1971.

The mall was renovated in the early 1990s, and added Parisian as an anchor in the location of the former Piccadilly Cafeteria & Spencer Gifts. This renovation also included a new food court area, and gave JC Penney a second mall entrance. After its acquisition by Belk, the Parisian location closed in 2007. A Kohl's store formerly occupied the space until 2016 and is now vacant.

Northlake Mall also briefly held one of the two fully signed Rich's-Macy's stores before reverting to Macy's (which bought Davison's in 1985) in the old Davison's store.

The mall is located at the southern terminus of Henderson Mill Road, where it intersects with Briarcliff Road.

Currently, the mall is anchored by JCPenney, Macy's and Sears.

Revitalization Planning[edit]

Tucker Northlake CID Master Plan Study (2015)[edit]

The Tucker-Northlake Community Improvement District (CID) completed its Master Plan for the Tucker and Northlake area in 2015 serving as the road map for transportation improvements and land use modifications.

Northlake's regional commercial and industrial centers are to be developed into mixed use, walkable destinations.[3]
