NorthTown’s new look: a walking-friendly north side and shops along Queen Ave.

Some of the work involved in NorthTown Mall's north side renovation started becoming obvious this week. Earlier this year, owner General Growth Partners began tearing out the inner shops lining the north corridor.

Yesterday work crews  from Bayley Construction, of Seattle, began tearing down the north wall that separates the two anchor tenants on that side, Kohl's on the east and Macy's on the west. They are on the side facing Queen Avenue.

This Google map view shows the section of the wall that's being torn out. It is marked by the solid red line. In its place will be a new configuration. See the rendering below, by architects DLR, to get the full effect.

That work won't be ready for new tenants until around mid-2015, said NorthTown Senior General Manager John Shasky.
