AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A 400,000-square-foot outlet mall is coming to Augusta's Village at Riverwatch. 

Premier Outlets of Georgia will open at Riverwatch Parkway and Cabela Drive in spring 2016, developers and Augusta city officials announced Wednesday.

Developers said as many as 1500 new jobs would be available as a result of the opening.

The developer, Ben Carter Enterprises, is also behind the Premier Outlets of Georgia location currently being built in Pooler, Ga.

The company also planned the Mall of Georgia outside of Atlanta.

Officials were not ready to release any potential tenants of the mall, but said they would be similar to Coach or Michael Kors.

The mall will be located near Costco and near Cabela's, which opens next month.

Georgia Theatre Company is also planning to build Riverwatch 14 Cinemas in the same area
