The $45 million Stonebridge Village will be Gainesville-Hall County’s largest retail development since Colonial Lakeshore Mall was built in 1968. The 520,000-square-foot shopping center will be located on 55 acres on Spout Springs Road at I-985 across from the Holland Dam Road intersection. The anchor line-up of national retailers includes: Target, Home Depot, Kohl’s, OfficeMax, PetSmart and Ross Dress for Less. Chick-Fil-A, and Chili’s. In addition, Wachovia Bank and Gainesville Bank & Trust are expected to have branch banks on the site. An additional 53,400 square feet of small shop space will accommodate national, regional and local retailers and restaurants. When completed, Flowery Branch officials expect Stonebridge to generate approximately $4 million in sales tax revenue and bring an estimated 1,200 to 1,500 jobs to the area. The shopping center is expected to open in Spring 2008. halvorsenholdings.com
