The City of Tallahassee is set to close on its purchase of the old Northwood Mall around May 20th. That $7.1 million purchase also includes the land the Hooters restaurant sits on, as well as one of the locations for Enterprise car rentals and three restaurants.  The city is also considering 68 proposed sites for a new Tallahassee Police Department location.

The City of Tallahassee is finalizing a deal to purchase the Northwood Centre for $6.8 million.

Tallahassee’s troubled Northwood Centre may have a new lease on life. The property’s court-appointed receiver thinks there’s hope for renewal.

Owners of the Northwood Center are suing the state of Florida over broken leases. Four state agencies currently rent space in the building but the Florida legislature de-funded those leases in the budget that begins this June.
