Bass Pro Shops Coming To Village at Riverwatch In Augusta

12 posts in this topic

The Development Authority of Richmond County is expected to make a major announcement today. Bass Pro Shops which has been trying to find a place here for years will make its home at the Village at Riverwatch lifestyle center. I was hoping they would pick this location.

As of right now it's scheduled to open in the fall of 2009.

Here's the article

Bass Pro Shops to announce Augusta plans

outdoor retailer Bass Pro Shops will locate a store in the proposed Village at Riverwatch development near the intersection of River Watch Parkway and Interstate 20.

I-20 going through augusta is going to be on another level soon. They said the site is 170 acres thats a good bit of land. Great news though

Awesome News! Im glad that will kickstart that development which I was beginning to think was going to become a casualty.

Any word on when construction will begin? I've been waiting so long for this project I have become dubious.

Also, it would be cool if they had a pedestrian bridge to the walkway along the canal.

I agree with PJA. Take a look at Augusta Exchange. How long did it take for them to finally get that off the ground? It was cleared and graded and left for several years....enough time to grow small trees, then finally developed. I think this project will get jumpstarted now that Bass is coming.

Walter Sprouse, who is Richmond County's development director, said the concrete slab in the Village of Riverwatch that will sprout Augusta's Bass Pro Shop will be laid within the next 60 days

I thought I noticed yesterday they had done some work (if just very little) at that site when I drove by on 20. They had placed PVC like poles with varying heights all around the property....dont remember seeing this before.
