A new commercial center that is under development in front of Augusta Mall will bring three businesses and a bank ATM to Wrightsboro Road.

An old building, formerly a bank branch and cellular phone store, has been razed near the Bobby Jones Expressway ramps at 3456 Wrightsboro to accommodate an 8,000-square-foot center that will house Aspen Dental and VisionWorks offices, a Sprint store and a SunTrust ATM, said Troy Jordan, a partner in Augusta-based Jordan Trotter Commercial Real Estate, which is developing the nearly $2.5 million retail project.

The stores are expected to open this November, Jordan said.

Located directly next to the property under construction is a 1.3-acre parcel owned by Macy’s, but there are no plans for development on that site, said mall General Manager Andy Wilke.

Net10 is not much better if you live in the country. Have to find yourself an oak tree or hold on to the front gate to MAYBE get a connection.

Augusta mall area

The Augusta mall should allow for somebody to build a new hotel in the empty parking lot space near Dillards..

Let's hope the growth will force somebody to demolish/renovate the Savannah Suites hotel and redevelop the TJ Maxx shopping center..

The Bojangles, professional/retail center, Marks Church widening, and Wrightsboro/I-520 interchange project will help bring additional private growth..
