DAWSONVILLE, Ga. (Nov. 6, 2015) – The grocery-anchored Dawson Crossroads shopping center, opening in the fall of 2016, has signed Publix as its newest tenant, in a 45,600-square-foot space.

The store’s prime location, on the southeast corner of GA 400 and Dawson Forest Road, is at a high-traffic intersection that sees over 33,000 vehicles per day. And with the nearest Publix over nine miles away, Dawson Crossroads is well positioned across the street from the North Georgia Premium Outlets and a Walmart Supercenter.

The 98,400-square-foot shopping center, developed by Halpern Enterprises and currently under construction, has six committed tenants in addition to Publix: Brooklyn Joe’s Pizzeria, Lee Nails, Great Clips, the newly-signed Totally Running and Top Cleaners, and a Chili’s restaurant outparcel. The center has an additional five outparcels available, and numerous other leases are currently under negotiation with national and local tenants.

“We have a strong relationship with Publix and enjoy working with them,” said John Brozovic, Regional Leasing Director at Halpern Enterprises. “Publix is a high-quality brand that fits in well with other tenants and will certainly benefit the 35,000 nearby households.”

“The Dawson County Development Authority has been working with Publix on different possibilities for site locations and ideas for a number of years,” said Charlie Auvermann, Executive Director of the Dawson County Development Authority. “Many citizens over the years have requested a Publix, so we are quite excited they are coming to Dawson County.”

Dawson Crossroads is Halpern’s fourth Publix anchor, joining the shadow-anchor at The Shoppes at Royale in St. Petersburg, Fla., a store at Cheshire Square in Atlanta, Ga., and a store at the Village at New Georgia in Dallas, Ga.

Dawson Crossroads is located at 4130 Dawson Forest Road in Dawsonville.
