The Savannah Economic Development Authority has given a green light on tax breaks for a large shopping mall planned for Pooler, GA just outside of Savannah.

The upscale shopping venue will receive property tax abatements estimated to be worth $131,000 annually. The project, once opened, is expected to creates between $5 million and $6 million in annual sales tax revenue.

Atlanta developer Ben Carter says his mall should be open in 2015.

The project will create 1,200 construction jobs and 1,500 permanent jobs.

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by Carole Parks Catering.
