Think Gateway Station is going to be just another shopping center in Barrow County? Think again.
The planned 14,000-square-foot development, part of the retail/commercial project at the northeast corner of Ga. highways 316 and 81 under the banner Gateway at University Parkway, will include a splash fountain and a clock tower.
Wayne Bartlett with in Winder said the fountain would be similar to the one at Mall of Georgia.
And that's not all. The site will also include an acre of greenspace behind the shopping center that can be used for outdoor events, such as concerts.
The main tenant within the shopping center will be Top Dawg Tavern, a family-oriented restaurant that will seat 160 to 180 guests. The retail center will also house a nail salon.
"It’s going to be in a really nice looking building," Bartlett said.
Several other businesses are considering moving into the location, including Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, a pizza place and a Chinese restaurant.
"Lots of good things going on,” Bartlett said.
A total of 160 acres are earmarked for grocery, retail, restaurant, office and medical space within Gateway at University Parkway.
