A revitalized Decatur Mall
Hull Property Group of Augusta, Ga., continues their more than $13 million investment in Decatur’s largest retail asset since taking ownership in 2016. Over the last 12 month, the firm has executed their plans to "right size" the property, revitalized the property's recruitment strategy, updated interior features creating more open space and gathering areas, new landscaping and lighting, and most importantly sustaining a retail environment for Morgan County residents to shop local and keep tax revenue local. Work will continue to develop the site as a destination for our region.
A second Chick-Fil-A location announced for 2018
In August, the announcement of a second Chick-Fil-A location for Decatur served as the result of a more than two-year process for area developers, business recruitment officials and members of the Chick-Fil-A corporate team. Meeting since 2015, the collaboration of market research, demographics studies and location availability bore fruit of Decatur being able to support one of the most popular quick-serve restaurants in the country. The second location, adjacent to The Crossings retail center on Highway 31, is slated for a 2018 opening. The project is a case study to the value of patience and persistence in development.
