SMYRNA — Construction continues on Jonquil, the mixed-used development on a 12-acre site at the corner of Atlanta and Spring roads. One major portion of the project — its grocery store anchor — is expected to be open by the end of the year.

Jack Halpern, chairman of Halpern Enterprises, the company behind the estimated $40 million-plus Jonquil development, told attendees at Thursday morning’s meeting of the Smyrna Area Council that Publix would be opening its doors in mid-December.

“It’s been a tight construction schedule to be able to turn this store over to them in time, but it looks like we’re going to make it. They should start stocking the store before Thanksgiving and open it in the middle of December,” Halpern said.

Jonquil will also consist of retail shops and luxury apartment units. Among the retail offerings in the development will be Willy’s Mexicana Grill, an Atlanta-based restaurant chain, and Newk’s Eatery, which just entered the Cobb market with a location going into the new Kennesaw Marketplace at the corner of Cobb and Barrett Parkway.

Halpern said Jonquil’s retail spaces are slated to open by the end of first quarter of 2017 — with 100 percent of them expected to be leased by this year’s end — while the 260 residential rental units, which are being developed by Wood Partners, are expected to be completed in the middle of 2017 with leasing beginning then.

Smyrna, Ga. (May 19, 2016) – The grocery-anchored Jonquil shopping center, opening in the spring of 2017, has signed Publix as its newest tenant. The project, heavily anticipated by the Smyrna community for years, will see Publix occupy a 45,600-square-foot space.

The store’s prime location, on the northwest corner of Atlanta Road and Spring Road, is at a high-traffic intersection that sees nearly 46,000 vehicles per day. While the nearest Publix is three miles away, the new Jonquil store is well-positioned to support the new residential communities springing up along the Atlanta Road corridor, including luxury apartment communities Alta Belmont and the tentatively named Alta Jonquil under development by Wood Partners. The Publix at Jonquil will have a pharmacy and will bring 100 new jobs to the community.

“We have worked with Publix for years and are thrilled to finally bring a Publix store to this part of Smyrna,” said John Brozovic, Regional Leasing Director at Halpern Enterprises. “Publix is a high-quality brand, and tenants appreciate the customer base they attract. This Publix will certainly benefit the 35,000 households surrounding Jonquil.”

The 60,000-square-foot Jonquil shopping center, developed by Halpern Enterprises and currently under construction, also has Atlanta-based chain Willy’s Mexicana Grill as a committed tenant in addition to Publix. Numerous other leases are currently under negotiation with national and local retail and restaurant brands.

“Our customers are anxiously awaiting the opening of this new store,” said Brenda Reid, Media and Community Relations Manager for Publix Super Markets. “We look forward to opening our third store in Smyrna and providing the Publix shopping experience at this new location.”

Jonquil is Halpern’s fifth Publix anchor, joining a store currently under construction at Dawson Crossroads in Dawsonville, Ga., and stores at Cheshire Square in Atlanta, Ga., The Village at New Georgia in Dallas, Ga., and The Shoppes at Royale, recently sold by Halpern, in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Jonquil is located at 2995 Atlanta Road SE in Smyrna, 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.
