Northlake is also primed for redevelopment. While full plans have not been announced, ATR is leaning toward developing the mall into a mixed-use property, starting in the next year or two, said Tony Ruggeri, a partner at the Dallas-based firm.

“This is one of the part of the city that has not been fully tapped up until this point,” Ruggeri told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last month. He said Northlake could “act as a catalyst for a lot more development in the area over time.”
ATR bought the nearly 1 million-square-foot mall at the intersection of Briarcliff and Lavista roads in early 2016.
Property taxes the mall will pay to DeKalb County will not change. Tucker also uses DeKalb police, water and sewer services, although the police department has a specified “Tucker Precinct.”
Northlake was originally included in Tucker’s proposed cityhood map in 2014, but it was removed by legislators before the 2016 referendum that made Tucker a city.
