It is no easy feat to incorporate a new city, but Peachtree Corners has done that successfully and admirably in just a few short years. With momentum in their back pocket and with just seven short years under their belt, Peachtree Corners recently celebrated the grand opening of their new Town Center. Constructed on one of the city’s only remaining undeveloped sizeable tracts of land on Peachtree Parkway, the $80 million project features anchor tenant CinéBistro, a high-end dinner and a movie theater, restaurants, retail shops, office space, townhomes and a 2-acre town green.
“Citizens should be proud of their city that it was able to successfully undertake this large-scale project and do so while maintaining a zero property tax,” said City Manager Brian Johnson.
The Town Center, a 21-acre mixed-use development located on the 5200 block of Peachtree Parkway, features entertainment venues, restaurants, shops, townhomes and a 2-acre town green. The town green, designed to be the heart of the Town Center includes two open-air pavilions, large oval-shaped lawn, performance stage, large screen TVs and café tables. It also includes an interactive water feature, fire pit, projection screen, open lawn, playable art and a community garden. A 3,000 square-foot veterans monument is also featured on the Town Green and includes seven sculptures donated by renowned sculptor, Chad Fisher.
“The Town Center and the 2-acre town green have been designed to be uniquely Peachtree Corners and are intended to become the heart of the city,” said Community Development Director Diana Wheeler.
In celebration, the community was invited to attend the grand opening celebration on April 27, which featured a ribbon cutting, parade and festivities. At the conclusion of the parade, the city council welcomed citizens and guests. Following the welcome, guests enjoyed a DJ playing music and strolling entertainment. The evening featured a performance on stage by the Atlanta Rhythm Section and concluded with an awesome drone show that lit up the night sky.
“In our Livable Centers Initiative study, we asked our citizens what they would like to see on this centrally-located piece of property. An overwhelmingly majority said what the city needed was a place where they could come together as a community,” said Mayor Mike Mason.
It is clear that Peachtree Corners created a space for the community to come together and so much more.
