Ortega Park construction moving forward

Work is plowing forward at what was once known as Roosevelt Square. Rebranded as Ortega Park, the square is located at the intersection of San Juan Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard and once housed the Roosevelt Square Mall. 

RLH construction is currently working on completing drainage improvements, pavement upgrades and additional traffic round-abouts on the property, according to City documents. While the developer, Atlanta-based Dewberry Group, has posted renderings on its site that show the addition of multi-family residential units, there have been no plans yet submitted for those, City documents show. However, the Dewberry site states that the project will eventually contain “Class-A multi-family living experiences.” Neither RLH construction nor Dewberry Group have responded to multiple requests for comment from The Resident on the project. 

The retail center is located at 4495 Roosevelt Boulevard and contains a Publix, Stein Mart, Metro Diner, a dentist office and multiple other restaurants and retailers. Dewberry acquired the former mall in 1997 and transformed it into the 300,000 square-foot complex that stands now. However, Dewberry plans to enlarge it to almost 700,000 square feet, according to its corporate site, during this third redevelopment phase.
