Northland was one of the nation’s first suburban shopping centers when it opened in 1954.
The 1.4-million-square-foot shopping center is now under the management of Syracuse, N.Y.-based Spinoso Real Estate Group, which took over in late September, said Pam Lightbody, a marketing manager for the firm.
In an interview Tuesday, Lightbody said there are currently no plans to close Northland and that the mall is expected to remain open in 2015.
The long-suffering mall has lost more than half its tenants and went into receivership this fall after after defaulting on a $31-million loan.
“They would hold onto it for a couple of years, get it into good shape, and once it becomes a good property again, they would be looking to sell it,” Lightbody said, adding that Spinoso recently upgraded the mall’s lighting and Christmas decorations.
