Outlet retail center owner/developer, Prime Retail, is developing a new outlet center in Holly Springs, GA. Prime Outlets - Holly Springs will be 450,000 square feet and is projected to open in 2010.
Located about 30 miles north of Atlanta just off I-575 in Cherokee County, the outlet center will house 120 stores. Prime said the $120 million project is justified by Atlanta's strong population growth and "need" for a new outlet shopping destination.
The Holly Springs development joins Prime's other two ground-up projects under development:
The company announced that Saks Off 5th will anchor Prime Outlets - Grand Prairie, a $100 million, 485,000-square-foot outlet center underway at I-20 and Hwy 360 in Grand Prairie, TX.
And in Livermore, CA, Prime just secured Neiman Marcus Last Call to anchor Prime Outlets - Livermore, a $156 million, 470,000-square-foot project to be completed in 2010 east of San Francisco and north of San Jose on I-580 in Livermore.
