South PTC Kroger to expand

City permission needed due to size restrictions

The Kroger Company is planning to undertake a significant expansion of its Braelinn store in south Peachtree City.

Kroger wants to add 42,800 square feet of space and renovate the entire store at the same time, according to City Planner David Rast. Once all the dust is settled on the work, the store will have grown from its current 66,000 square feet to more than 109,000 square feet.

To accomplish the growth, the store will take over space from the stores on either side of the grocer, both of which will be relocated to vacant space in the Braelinn Village shopping center, Rast said.
“They are making a big investment,” Rast said.

The store opened in 1990. But thanks to modern-day regulations on the size of commercial buildings, Kroger must get a special use permit from the City Council before the project can begin.
The planning commission is expected to consider the permit at its Jan. 14 meeting with consideration by council in February.

By moving the existing tenants currently next door to Kroger, it will help fill otherwise empty space at the shopping center, Rast noted.

In addition to the special use permit, Kroger is also seeking permission to encroach into a floodplain to expand the facility at the rear somewhat, Rast said.
