Gwinnett on the Rebound


Over the past several months, we’ve seen many areas of Metro Atlanta emerge from the constraints of the economic recession and begin regaining some of what was lost. Gwinnett hasn’t been one of them – until now. After years as being known as “the region with struggling malls,” the Northeast submarket is finally starting to post positive absorption numbers and has begun attracting more businesses to the area. Many areas near Gwinnett Place Mall have been designated as Opportunity Zones, were employers are rewarded for adding new jobs, and the county is doing a lot to improve its infrastructure troubles, including the construction of a diverging diamond interchange at Pleasant Hill Road and I-85. The Gwinnett CID is even following in the footsteps of downtown Duluth and Sandy Springs by teaming with a developer to create a transportation-centered “main street” and green space in hopes of spurring even more development. Gwinnett’s plan is working, as several new deals have come to fruition in the submarket. Some new additions include:

National DCP (a Dunkin Donuts supplier)
The Dennis Group
