A Shoppers Hotspot in the Past Faces the Fate of Demolition


For years, southern Ozaukee County and beyond shoppers would head south to shop and get a quick bite to eat at the popular Northridge Mall located in the far northern part of the City of Milwaukee, or just a mile or so south of the Milwaukee County/Ozaukee County line.

According to a recent Urban Milwaukee online news report, 

the City of Milwaukee hosted a pre-bid walkthrough of the long-vacant Northridge Mall complex, drawing interested bidders from as far away as Pennsylvania. Donning helmets and other protective gear, the demolition contractors saw the extensive damage vandals have done to the complex, the locations of asbestos needing abatement and three tower structures the city would like to preserve.

While dodging broken glass, the contractors could also see remnants of fires from recent years, see how the movie theaters are flooded and check out the overwhelming amount of graffiti, much of it phallic or vulgar. Environmental contractors and city officials, including Redevelopment Authority project manager Benji Timm, Department of Neighborhood Services supervisor Chris Kraco and alderwoman Larresa Taylor were on hand to answer questions.
