    new developments

    I have recently moved to Colorado, but have tried to keep up with Macon. I recall reading about 2 new developments in north Macon. North Macon Promenade -A 314,000 sf development of big box and smaller retailers, with a hotel and restaurant. Riverside Centre- with 415.000 sf of stores and restaurants, along with a 55,000 sf Movie theater. does anyone know what will be going end to these projects? and are the any more on the horizon?

    Downtown Redevelopment

    it's good to see developers from outside of Macon to start to invest in downtown. Here are a few of the projects. Lamar drugs building on Cherry Street being developed into a mixed-use development with 30-40 lofts and street level commercial. A company who specialize in mixed-use in the southeast is doing this project. Lofts at Popular is being developed by an Atlanta developer, this project will be all residential.(12 lofts) 518,522 and 530 Cherry street is being developed by a Macon native who has spent most of their Adult life in New Orleans. it will have 5 residential units, a roof- top garden and patio along with 3 retail spaces ..Her art gallery Travis Jean will open this month. Along with all the Projects Mercer has going on downtown, there's a lot going on downtown. Standard Rhodes building on second street being developed into a mixed-use building with 12 lofts and 4 commercial spaces at street level.

    Macon Area Projects & Developments

    Publix was originally going to build on Zebulon Rd behind Zaxbys but when Kroger backed out of the Bass Rd location and decided to enlarge an remodel Tom Hill , took their place. I'm pretty sure it won't be Publix though. Maybe something like a Harris Teeteras far as Whole Foods they're looking to expand in midsize markets.but who knows we're probably all wrong.
