A New Northgate

How exciting is this?

After years and years of machinations, missteps and manuevering by everyone involved, there is finally a clear (and exciting) future for the south lot of Northgate Mall. A mix of apartments, retail, townhouses and movie theaters will be balanced by one of the best, new watershed open space amenities in the city and, hopefully, a landmark of what can come in the future as the Green Futures charrette ideas move forward.

Developed by Lorig Associates, Stellar Holdings and ERA Care Communities with a landscape designed by the Berger Partnership, this Thornton Creek Water Quality Channel will be an extraordinary community amenity.

All of this would not be possible without the persistence of the Northgate community, creek stewards and the Thornton Creek Alliance. It is groups like this, which, for years, sometimes decades, they have been fighting the good fight. Congrats all.
