Cambridge Square, owned and operated by Regency Centers, has signed Publix Super Markets as the anchor for the 70,169-square-foot neighborhood center serving the Brookhaven, GA community.
Publix will relocate from 3435 Ashford Dunwoody Road to Regency Centers’ Cambridge Square, which allows for a drive-through pharmacy, more parking, greater accessibility and increased square footage, along with an upgraded design and grocery concept.
For several decades there has been a grocery option at the Cambridge Square location. In 2021, Kroger closed its store at the shopping center; since then, Regency Centers has been diligently working to provide a neighborhood grocery store option within a regional retail landscape of nearby specialty grocers.
More than value, today’s grocers are expected to meet the consumers’ evolving expectations, and the Brookhaven shopper is no exception,” said Nate Smith, Vice President and Market Officer, Regency Centers. “The Publix Super Markets brand can now continue to provide its exceptional service to Brookhaven while catering to convenience through a larger space and an updated experience.
In addition to a new Publix at Cambridge Square, Regency Centers is investing in significant upgrades including enhancing the landscape, refreshing the center’s façade, signage and lighting, as well as parking lot refurbishments. Recognizing the City of Brookhaven’s efforts to offer balanced pedestrian- and bike-friendly accessibility within the community, along with the opening of the new Publix location, the redevelopment will result in expanded pedestrian-friendly access that encourage walkability and connects pedestrians to the existing path network, as well as dedicated space for more convenient bicycle parking. Regency Centers expects to complete the redevelopment in 2025.
Cambridge Square is an important location to the community of Brookhaven, and having Publix as a part of it is a value add for the surrounding neighborhoods,” said Linley Jones, District 1 Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem. “Regency’s vision is a reflective upgrade for the property, and continues a trend of improvements for the area.
Regency Centers owns 23 assets in Metro Atlanta, primarily concentrated in Buckhead, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs. The company is also redeveloping Buckhead Landing, situated in the heart of Atlanta at 3330 Piedmont Road.
