The CEO, Kushner, said there has been “strong interest” in the center. He said the location is “superior,” as it is near "the perimeter with easy access to I-285 and I-85, Buckhead, Midtown and the Emory area, along with close proximity to desirable neighborhoods in Northlake, Tucker and Decatur.”
Tucker is an old community, which was only officially incorporated last year, as one of the latest new jurisdictions in metro Atlanta’s cityhood movements of recent years.
Tucker-Northlake CID President Ann Rosenthal said a master plan is in place calling for new retail and dining options along the “Lavista Road/Northlake Parkway retail corridor” by Northlake Mall.
The groundbreaking is set for 1 p.m. Wednesday at 2175 Northlake Parkway and is expected to draw local officials, including those from the Tucker-Northlake and Tucker community improvement districts.
The mayor hopes it’s a big step in redeveloping the area.
