Kroger development to bring four tenants


Dirt is moving near Milledgeville’s Kroger site, which will soon add four new tenants to the area. 

Construction crews kicked off work last week as they aim to complete the project, which will boast a shopping center with four tenants on two acres of land.

An Oconee Regional Medical Center primary care center, a Great Clips and a Shane’s Rib Shack have committed as tenants in the shopping center, while the fourth tenant is still in the negotiating stage.

“Great Clips will be the first to open, and then the other two will follow soon after,” said Alvin Williams, project superintendent of the RW Smith Company of Marietta, general contractor for the project. “Everything should be open in early July.”

Shane’s Rib Shack started with barbecue in McDonough in 2002, and has now grown to having more than 35 locations throughout Georgia and around 14 other states. The eatery offers pork, barbecue chicken, half chicken, ribs, sandwiches, chicken tenders, wings, salads, a number of sides, desserts, party platters and catering services.

RW Smith of Marietta is the same general contractor company that built Kroger.

“We’re beginning to dig and do the foundation work,” Williams said Tuesday afternoon.

Kroger sold three outparcels adjacent to the building to The Sofran Group last year for the purpose of building a shop space.

Founded in 1980 in Canada, The Sofran Group has expanded its operations to current offices located in Atlanta and Florida. The company has developed more than 8 million square feet of commercial property across 10 states, according to the Sofran website.

Since 1990, RW Smith Company has specialized in retail and office construction throughout the southeast as a general contracting firm. Retail experience includes Borders, CVS, Ingles, Kohl’s, Kroger, Mellow Mushroom, Office Max, Staples, Starbucks, Subway, T.J. Maxx and Walgreens.
