Outlet Mall of Georgia at Augusta to Break Ground in December

By

The long awaited date for when work will begin on The Outlet Mall of Georgia at Augusta has been set. Ben Carter Enterprises announced it will break ground on the 70 acre shopping center in December. The outlet mall will be next to Cabela’s and Costco and it’s scheduled to open in the spring of 2016.

The announcement came after the company reached an agreement with the owners of Georgia Theater Company, who agreed to reposition a 14-screen complex with a full service restaurant to accommodate the outlet mall.

“They said we’ll break ground once we hit a certain percentage of leases in hand,” said Walter Sprouse, Executive Director of Augusta Economic Development Authority.

The fashion mall will include top tier retailers that will put people to work. Sprouse said, “Somewhere in excess of a thousand jobs. We’re talking about 800 thousand sq ft of retail space, which is bigger than some towns.”
