A Hudson-Belk store closed in 2005 and has been converted to an East Coast Entertainment 10-screen movie theater  Additionally, a number of exterior shops, including a Marble Slab Creamery, are being added to the mall's exterior adjacent to the theater, in an effort to create an upscale outdoor shopping experience similar to other malls in the area. Construction work continues for the development of new stores and shopping in the new "plaza" section of the mall, with construction crews working on building out the rest of the new space in the mall. According to a member of the mall's security staff, between 10 and 15 tenants are signed to round out the plaza, which is reportedly scheduled to complete construction by early 2007.
An adjacent strip-style plaza on the property's west side includes a new Guitar Center, C&H Cafeteria, a regional cafeteria chain, and an Office Depot which opened on December 31, 2006. Also in the main center area an indoor Carousel plus a new permanent Children's Train ride in center court All of this work is part of a reported $16 million renovation to keep Northgate, Durham's oldest enclosed shopping mall, an all-round attractive destination for shoppers.
