SOUTHFIELD, MI-GP Northland Center, through its Maple Shade, NJ-based parent company Jager Associates, has put its part of the Northland Center mall up for sale. The property, the first regional mall built in the US, opened in 1954, but has lost a few anchors along the way.

The company owns about 600,000 sf of the 1.7-million-sf mall, basically all the inline stores minus anchors Marshall Fields, Target and National Wholesale Liquidators. There are vacant anchor stores still on the site, including a 300,000-sf J.C. Penney building that was purchased by Nassimi Realty of New York City in August.

Mark Taylor, VP with the Philadelphia office of Marcus & Millichap, said the sale is through a bid process, and no price has been named. However, the enclosed mall is not going to go for the same price as what the 1.5-million-sf Oakland Mall sold for in November, reportedly about $100-$150 per sf. “I don’t think it would be that high,” Taylor tells Oakland Mall, which opened in 1968, is in a more affluent market area than Northland.
