Location History

As historic aerial going back as far as 1938 images reveal, the site hosted a mere three or four buildings belonging to Saint Joseph Juniorate. In 1956, the seminary was closed and a mere two years later, Northshore Mall was opened, laying the groundwork for further development. As time progressed, the area underwent a dramatic transformation from a rural landscape to a bustling retail hub.
