DAWSONVILLE, Ga. (Jan. 17, 2017) – An exciting mix of new shopping and dining options will make its debut in Dawsonville. PetSmart, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, and several new retailers will join the thriving Publix-anchored Dawson Crossroads shopping center this spring.

PetSmart will serve as the center’s 18,000 SF junior anchor, giving the Dawsonville community an expanded selection of not only pet supplies but services. “PetSmart is the country’s largest pet retailer and service provider,” said John Brozovic, a Halpern Regional Leasing Director. “The Dawsonville store features full-service grooming in addition to expert training services.”

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and Murphy Oil will also join the center in outparcels facing Georgia 400, neighboring a Chili’s restaurant, Aspen Dental, and AT&T. Murphy Oil will boast 12 pumps and a 1,200 SF convenience store. In a footprint of 3,000 SF, the national fast-casual chain Freddy’s will serve traditional American fare with a unique twist on the burger-and-fries genre that uses steak in its burgers while offering a selection of frozen custards.

Newly-signed tenants The Joint Chiropractic, Tripp & Company Jewelers, the dual-branded Marble Slab Creamery and American Cookie Company, Fit Body Bootcamp, Shanel Nichole Hair Studio, and fashion retailers Ten Point Boutique and Blush Ivey Boutique, will join an already-flourishing roster of tenants that includes Brooklyn Joe’s Pizza Pasta & Grill, La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant, Lee Nails, Great Clips, Totally Running, and Top Cleaners.

Halpern is currently in negotiations with several other national and local tenants. Medical, retail, and restaurant users still have an opportunity to locate their businesses at Dawson Crossroads. The center, which is well-positioned across the street from the North Georgia Premium Outlets and a Walmart Supercenter, is located on the southeast corner of GA 400 and Dawson Forest Road at a high-traffic intersection that sees nearly 33,000 vehicles per day.

Dawson Crossroads is located at 145 Forest Boulevard in Dawsonville, Ga.

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.

Leasing activity has picked up and is going strong at Halpern Enterprises’ new Dawson Crossroads center.  Several retailers and restaurants have signed leases in the 29-acre Dawsonville development, which is expected to open in 2016.

Brooklyn Joe’s Pizzeria, Lee Nails, and Great Clips are the first tenants to commit to go inline at the center, which will be anchored by a major national grocery store.  There is space available for a junior anchor and an assortment of other shops and restaurants. Chili’s restaurant is coming to the corner outparcel, and there is also a high level of interest in the property’s other outparcels from popular franchises.

“Dawsonville is becoming a shopping hub for the entire surrounding area, and Dawson Crossroads will be right in the middle of that activity,” said Dan Gagne, Regional Director of Leasing for Halpern. “With excellent highway access and a prime location, the center will be a good fit for tenants looking for a high traffic area.”

The area already features the North Georgia Premium Outlets, a regional draw for high-end, off-price retailers as well as Walmart and Home Depot.  Dawsonville is rapidly becoming a bedroom community for Atlanta, within easy reach of northern suburbs like Alpharetta and Cumming.

Site work for Dawson Crossroads is expected to start in August, with the first shops to be ready for tenants next summer.
