The Village at Riverwatch is a planned Mixed-use development located in Augusta, Georgia (United States) along the banks of the Augusta Canal. The property will include an upscale lifestyle center, a dine-in 14-screen IMAX movie theater, Costco, Cabelas, and 25 acres of restaurants and retail. In addition, 7 acres of retail and entertainment and a hotel are planned. The center is currently owned by Dallas-based MGHerring Group.

History[edit]

In July 2005, the MGHerring Group — the developer of the center — announced that it would be built in the upcoming months and would have a grand opening of 2007. Construction initially started in October 2005. During mid-2006, however, construction came to a halt. Due to a lack of a blueprint for the center, the opening was postponed. In October 2010, it was announced that Costco would be opening a store on the site. On July 25, 2013, Cabelas announced that it would join Costco and open its first Georgia location on the site. On the same day, it was announced that the Georgia Theatre Company would open a 14-screen IMAX movie theater.

Format[edit]

The Village at Riverwatch will have both an upscale lifestyle center and a power center theme.

Location[edit]

The Village at Riverwatch is located off of River Watch Parkway and Interstate 20 along the banks of the Augusta Canal. The shopping center will be visible along Interstate 20 at Exit 200.
