The project of the modern shopping center started in 2004 with the demolition of neighbouring car dealerships. RK Construction & Development Company, Inc (Ramsey Khalidi) who has been saving endangered historic building in Savannah and the surrounding area with particular expertise in desonstruction, stabilization, moving, reconstruction and renovation played an important part. The land area gained became a triangle of three streets: Abercorn Expressway, White Bluff Road and Fairmont Avenue.
New buildings were constructed including a Circuit City and more areas. Shops 600 came on line in early 2007 and was certified LEED-Silver. The next stage, which will expand potential of the shopping mall, is currently in the design phase.
Abercorn Common located close to some other major shopping centers: Oglethorpe Mall; Oglethorpe Plaza; Chatham Plaza and a K-Mart Shopping Center.
