Tucker, GA — First Watch, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chase Bank and more plan to join the growing list of tenants at the Hugh Howell Marketplace, the newest shopping center in Tucker. Located at the corner of Hugh Howell and Mountain Industrial Boulevard, the property has changed the landscape and traffic of the corridor.
Publix supermarket is the center’s anchor store, and plans to open by Thanksgiving. Developer Branch Properties promised the project – which includes active trails, an art installation, and green space — will be “state of the art.” It was approved by City Council in March 2020.
Here is the full list of tenants:
– Antico Pizza
– ATI Physical Therapy
– Avalon Nail Bar
– Buffalo Wild Wings GO
– Chase Bank
– First Watch
– Flawless Repair
– Jersey Mike’s
– Kobe Sushi and Hibachi
– Magical Waxing
– Piedmont Urgent Care
– Step Above Learning Center
– The Joint Chiropractic
While some Smoke Rise neighbors are concerned about an increase in traffic, Kalpana Patel said she is looking forward to the development.
“We were used to seeing a vacant lot with nothing on it for years. We have seen the development in Northlake and other places, now a lot of neighbors are excited about the restaurant selections. Especially Antico pizza and Gusto’s,” said Patel.
Tucker is working with Georgia Department of Transportation to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety in the area. The city is redesigning the intersection of Mountain Industrial Boulevard at US-78. Proposed changes include realignment of on/off ramps at US-78, improvements to lighting and traffic signals, U-turn enhancements for tractor trailers and a median with landscaping between Greer Circle and Elmdale Drive. A new traffic light is being installed at Flintstone Drive and Hugh Howell Road, partially funded by the developer of Hugh Howell Marketplace.
