MORROW, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 15th 2016, U.S. Properties Group (USPG) has completed its extensive makeover of the Morrow, GA retail corridor. With extensive building, parking lot and landscape upgrades, the former Southlake Pavilion is now The Shoppes at Morrow Station. The Shoppes at Morrow Station is comprised of more than 485,685 square feet of retail space. With this renovation, USPG anticipates demand for space in the project to increase. The opening of NUM DAE MUN is expected in early summer 2016. NUM DAE MUN is a Farmers Market Super Center with a massive array of product lines and discount pricing, and replaces the 100,000 square foot vacant Target. This will be a substantial traffic generator to The Shoppes at Morrow Station, as it sits in the same parking lot adjoining the newly renovated Ashley Furniture store. The Ashley store has increased its product line with its complete renovation and includes an outlet type center. In addition, The Shoppes at Morrow Station has seen key lease renewals since the upgrades began including Ross Stores, Party City, and Barnes & Noble, among others.
With its new name and prime placement in the Morrow retail corridor, The Shoppes at Morrow Station has prime retail space available and offers an A+ location with high visibility, prime signage, favorable rents, and Interstate 75 signage availability for anchor tenants. Located in the South Atlanta suburb of Morrow, Georgia’s historic train station junction has been transformed into a growth opportunity for national, regional, and local retailers.
Gord Wiebe, Director of USPG states: “This is a tremendous opportunity you can’t buy and have to be invited into – well, I’m inviting you to come and join us.”
USPG has acquired and improved “value add” shopping center assets since 2002. A destination shopping area, The Shoppes at Morrow Station has an array of national big boxes and a complementary mix of regional and local retailers. “We have enormous opportunity, prime locations for restaurants, boutiques, and mega concept retailers. More importantly, we’re open for discussion,” Gord states.
The property supports a growing 20-minute market of an estimated 559,000 people, predominantly South of Atlanta, having two access points off Interstate 75 with a direct traffic count of 129,240 cars per day. The Shoppes at Morrow Station is a 10-minute drive on Interstate 75 from Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport and the Atlanta Ring Road for easy access for all destination shoppers.
“We have the opportunity to help retailers’ bottom lines and, at the same time, turn this development into the perfect stop to shop, dine, and enjoy,” Cindy Hicks adds as VP Leasing for USPG The Shoppes at Morrow Station.
“USPG is looking to enhance the shopping experience and create a win-win for all involved…the community, the retailer, the shopper and the owner/developer. As our core philosophy states, we are ‘Renovating Real Estate and Revitalizing Communities,’” concludes Hicks.
