Atlanta’s eastern metro area is getting a big dose of retail with the opening of Conyers Crossroads in Conyers, Rockdale County, about 28 miles east of Atlanta. Ben Carter Properties developed the 380,000 sf, estimated $50 million venture.

The center is located at an interchange of Ga. 138 and I-20, a major east-west metro area artery. Conyers Crossroads is anchored by Kohl’s department store (86,000 sf) and Carmike Cinemas (77,000 sf).

Other big box tenants are Circuit City (27,885 sf), Old Navy (25,000 sf), Staples office warehouse (24,000 sf) and Michaels (23,750 sf).

Conyers Crossroads is adjacent to the recently completed 430,000 sf Conyers Plaza anchored by Wal-Mart Supercenter, Home Depot, Rhodes Furniture and Goody’s. Total retail space for the two centers amounts to 430,000 sf, the largest contiguous retail space in the area.

Rental rates in the I-20 east market are between $6.13 psf and $7.05 psf.

Ben Carter Properties also developed the Mall of Georgia in northeast Atlanta.
