Northgate Future

Shape the Vision #NorthgateDurham

Northgate Mall represents Durham. Northgate has been the place for shoppers, business owners, mall walkers, employees, performers, and the community to come together and create lasting memories.

Honoring the history we understand that Northgate is a special and memorable space for Durham residents. The team at Northwood has launched a community engagement process to hear from you. We’re taking a local approach to rethink the mall. We want to build a space that works for Durham.

Check out the upcoming events below.


An Update About our Community Engagement + Redevelopment Process

We are wishing all of Durham the best during this difficult time. Northwood is deeply committed to helping support the businesses at Northgate Mall while keeping the health and safety of our community a top priority.

We began this community engagement process to inform you about our redevelopment plans and to gather feedback about what you would like to see included in the future of Northgate Mall. We are working on a plan to see how this will impact our timeline for engagement, sharing a development design with the public, and the start of redevelopment work. As soon as we have an update, we will share it here.

At this time, we are transitioning from in-person events to virtual sessions. Our goal is to make them informative and fun. We hope to keep you engaged in the process and to allow you to connect with your community during this time of social distancing. Please see our upcoming events below and we hope you’ll join us!
