Welcome to Peachtree Corners
Welcome to our City by the River
Peachtree Corners is Gwinnett County's newest city. Situated in one of the fastest growing counties in Georgia, Peachtree Corners is conveniently located to major highways, Interstate 85, Interstate 285 and GA 400 and just 30 minutes northeast of Atlanta. Founded on July 1, 2012, it is home to over 42,000 residents. The new city is 17 square miles in size and is located in the southwest corner of the county. Seven miles of the Chattahoochee River define its western border.
A City on the Move
The new city's roots began in the late 1960s as a dream of businessman Paul Duke, who pitched the idea of creating Peachtree Corners, a planned community to be built in the area once known as Pinckneyville. Duke's dream included Technology Park Atlanta, a campus of low-rise buildings for high technology industries. Today Technology Park is home to Fortune 500 businesses and continues to attract high-tech companies drawing top-tiered engineering talent from around the country.
A Pro-Business Environment
Companies thrive in the city's pro-business environment which offers residents a zero-millage rate. The City is home to Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, a city owned and operated living laboratory designed specifically as a proving ground for technology that has "graduated" from a closed laboratory environment. It consists of a 5G-enabled 3-mile autonomous vehicle test track and smart city infrastructure located within an existing 500-acre technology park where thousands of people and vehicles interact with the test track and smart city technology every day. Technology companies of all sizes are invited to test, demo and deploy new concepts. Curiosity Lab is a unique public-private partnership that was created as an economic development tool to attract technology companies and to help them grow. Curiosity Lab is one of North America's only real-world testing environments and is available for use free of charge. Innovators utilizing Curiosity Lab today include early-stage tech startups, Fortune 500 companies, and academic researchers.
