About Town Center at Cobb

Town Center originated as the result of the completion of I-75 in 1977 and part of I-575 later, which brought both residential and commercial development to the northwest part of Cobb County.

It was built on the site of the old Roberts Farm. Wayne Shackleford, the project manager for the construction of the mall later headed the Georgia Department of Transportation in the 1990s.

The mall opened in 1986 and was the second enclosed mall built outside the I-285 perimeter at the time of its opening.
