30. Ortega Park
Ortega Park Master Plan
Roosevelt Mall opened in 1961 as an open air shopping center. The shopping center was converted into an enclosed mall in 1968. Anchors during this era included Ivey’s, Furchgott’s, Levy-Wolf, Purcell’s and F.W. Woolworth. Atlanta based Dewberry Capital Corporation purchased the 260,000 square foot mall in 1997. Since then Roosevelt has been converted back into its original use, an open air strip shopping center.
Up until 2017, Roosevelt Square’s anchors included Stein Mart, Belk and Publix. With the recent closure of Belk, Dewberry Capital plans an extensive retrofit of the popular shopping center. The former Belk store was recently demolished and several new infill retail buildings will be added throughout the property, which will be called Ortega Park.
