Project Spotlight - Walmart Neighborhood Market, Athens, GA

Square Footage: 41,117 S.F.
Completion Date: 2015
Construction Cost: $12,000,000
Funding Source: Private

This project was for a Walmart Neighborhood Market and 6-pump fueling station on 12.80 acres located on Atlanta Highway in Athens, GA. The key goal for this site was to develop without the need for any variances. The site had several constraints including a jurisdictional stream, residential buffers, steep topography, and a Georgia Power transmission line, all of which had impacts to the ability to develop the property. Access to the property included working through a third party property owner to secure necessary easements.

BDG provided due diligence, conceptual plans for planning and budgeting, real estate committee plans, sight line study, civil design, title review, and construction observations as part of our scope of services. Permitting services included Athens-Clarke County, Georgia DOT, and Georgia EPD.
