Dewberry Group currently owns and operates a portfolio of world-class mixed-use developments. The organization’s talented and inspired team brings hands-on experience in architecture & design, marketing, management, leasing and development to each of its investments.
Dewberry Group acquired the property in 1993, expanded it in 2003 and then again in 2017. Officially opened in 2017, Oyster Park is a 460,000 square-foot mixed-use project consisting of 269 luxury multi-family residences and 150,000 square feet of sophisticated lifestyle shopping. Located at the intersection of Ben Sawyer Boulevard and Rifle Ridge Road on the edge of the desirable Old Village of Mt. Pleasant neighborhood, Oyster Park is situated a mere two miles from both Mt. Pleasant’s famed Shem Creek entertainment district and the beach community of Sullivan’s Island.
Dewberry Group acquired the much-neglected Roosevelt Mall in 1997 and redeveloped it into a 300,000 square-foot open-air retail and lifestyle hub whose success has had an undeniable impact on the surrounding community. Today, the center, which has been renamed Ortega Park, serves Jacksonville’s most established and affluent neighborhoods, including Riverside, Avondale and Old Ortega. Anchored by one of Publix’s top 10 highest grossing stores in the nation, together with Jacksonville-based Steinmart and cosmetics superstore Ulta, this project has become a community mainstay. With a third phase of renovations currently underway, Ortega Park will grow to nearly 700,000 sf and include upscale shopping, dining, and Class-A multi-family lifestyle experiences. The retail expansion and upgrade will feature Ortega Alley – an expanse of pedestrian engagement befitting the area’s increasingly active culture.
Situated on the downtown mall in Charlottesville’s historic district, this landmark former bank building, originally opened in 1931 was demolished, rebuilt and reopened in 1966, is poised to become the city’s premier luxury multi-use property. Though it will receive the full Studio Dewberry treatment in terms of modernization and first-class amenities, its architectural provenance and integrity will be preserved and celebrated. The building’s stunning granite facade, for instance, which was originally designed by Charlottesville architect Joseph C. “Jack” Laramore, will be preserved. Additionally, plans call for two-level upscale retail, as well as a spectacular rooftop venue ensuring the project will mark a prominent addition to downtown Charlottesville.
