The Dewberry Group acquired the former, outdated Roosevelt Mall in 1997 and transformed the project into a 300,000-square-foot open-air retail and lifestyle center called Roosevelt Square, the company’s website showed.

It was renovated in 1999, 2003 and 2019. Anchored by Publix, Ulta and West Marine, the mall serves residential areas such as Riverside, Avondale and Ortega.

Dewberry is currently renovating and renaming Ortga Park, which when completed will include “750,000 square feet of upscale residential, office, shopping, dining and lifestyle experiences,” the website says.

The heart of the project is Ortega Alley – a pedestrian zone designed to encourage and attract the increasingly active lifestyle in the region, according to the company.
