Northgate Mall renovations begin

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The new owners of the Northgate Mall are hoping to bring the nearly vacant mall back to life.

On Friday, a groundbreaking was held to the new Colerain Township Gateway and Memorial Plaza. They hope this will make the Northgate Mall a popular spot once again.

The renovation will serve as economic development for Colerain Township as well as a place where fallen township firefighters, police, civil servants and members of the United States military will be honored.

The first part of the new renovations will be a brand new restaurant called Cheddars.
