North DeKalb Mall on hold: rezoning application withdrawn

The Dekalb Cross Neighborhoods Council has been notified that Sterling Enterprises is withdrawing their rezoning application for the proposed redevelopment of North Dekalb Mall. Their lawyer, Kathryn Zickert, informed us that the project has become too expensive to proceed. At this point the owner/developer has not shared their future plans for the property. We will share more information as it becomes available.

Update 2 (12/13/18): Tomorrow's News Today adds to the discussion, suggests that forward movement was probably impeded by merchants existing leases, and that Costco remains interested.
Update 1: Decaturish covered the announcement.
