Since our inception in 1981, Columbia Properties has developed more than 85 retail shopping centers throughout the Southeast. Each development has its own challenges and the experience that has been accumulated by our team over the years has assisted us in developing a process to ensure a well received, quality development every time.  Retail shopping centers are only as strong as the community they support.  Before beginning a development, our team gets to know the retail dynamics of each neighborhood within a trade area.  We then diligently engineer, design and construct the shopping center to match the local retail demand.  This diligence has resulted in a long list of completed developments, of which we are very proud.  Our company has consistently been named one of Atlanta’s top retail developers by the Business Chronicle, and Managing Partner Dan O'Neill has been consistently listed in Atlanta Magazine's annual list of Atlanta's 500 most influential business leaders.
