Ground has been broken for the newest addition to the Fischer Crossing development on Ga. Highway 34 just over the Coweta County line. A 157,000 sq. ft. Costco is going in and is expected to open in August.

Fischer Crossing in east Coweta County is approximately one mile from Peachtree City, with Costco and a Kaiser Permanente office going on the large northeast corner of Hwy. 34 and Fischer Road.

Coweta County Community Development Assistant Director Angela White said the Costco store will be situated along Fischer Road across from the north side of the Sam’s Club, and will total 156,805 sq. ft., situated on approximately 5 acres.

Costco is expected to open in August.

By way of comparison, the Sam’s Club store directly across Fischer Road totals 136,000 sq. ft. and was, when it opened in early 2011, the largest Sam’s Club in the Southeast.

Originally expected to be an all-retail area, White said previously that Coweta County had been advised by the developer that a contract has been signed with healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente to have a facility on the northeast side of Fischer Crossing. The building, or buildings, will be located south of Costco, nearer the intersection of Fischer Road and Hwy. 34.

Kaiser currently has a limited local presence, with a small medical office on Newnan Crossing Bypass in Newnan and another on Banks Road and Ga. Highway 85 North in Fayetteville.

Also available on the northeast corner of Fischer Crossing and extending east along highways 34/54 to NCG, are approximately six outparcel lots, White said.

Long-zoned by Coweta County as a major commercial area, the first commercial offerings at Fischer Crossing were NCG Cinemas and Sam’s Club. Several other businesses have opened in outparcel locations adjacent to Sam’s Club on the northwest corner of the intersection of Hwy. 34 and Fischer Road.

Until the Costco announcement earlier this year, the only developments on the large northeast corner were NCG and a Wendy’s restaurant.
