24. Ortega Park
Ortega Park Master Plan
The redevelopment of Roosevelt Square continues. Originally opening as an open air shopping center in 1961 and converted into an enclosed mall in 1968, Roosevelt was retrofitted back into an open air plaza by Atlanta-based Dewberry Capital Corporation in 1997. Current plans call for revamping the shopping center into a 28.4 acre mixed use development called Ortega Park. As much as 100,536 square feet at the 311,220 square foot shopping center either has been or will be razed soon. 93,275 square feet of new retail and dining space will be added, along with an internal roadway and parking circulation system that will include two roundabouts.
