A half-century landmark at the nexus of Augusta’s I-95 junction with Rout 202, the Turnpike Mall first opened its doors in 1969 as the state’s very first enclosed mall. With a keen eye for identifying underperforming properties across the nation, Sun Equity acquired the distressed hub in 2019 for a bold $3.2 million bid. With the initial steps of the company’s strategic repositioning plan successfully executed, the Turnpike Mall is now well positioned for its long awaited revival, as a dynamic, retail entertainment hybrid, geared to draw a broad mix, ranging brick-and-mortar diehards to consumers and entertainment enthusiasts, from across all age groups and demographics. Based on the Sun Equity’s tried-and-proven repositioning savvy and track record, the company’s vision for the Turnpike Mall capitalizes on its strategic visibility and access in the heart of the area’s regional trade area with a mix of retail and entertainment venues that will integrate with the mall’s current high-volume co-tenants including Christmas Tree Shops, Bed Bath & Beyond, Petco and others. Giant, big-box spaces, such as the former Sears location, are being sub-divided to offer smaller spots ranging from 2,500 SF to up to 70,000 SF, with individual pads being offered for long-term lease or purchase.
