  1. Introduction to Peachtree Corners

As Gwinnett County's largest city, Peachtree Corners is a regional technology hub about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. The city is vibrant and growing, with leadership focused on comprehensive, well-conceived planning and meaningful development. One unique aspect of conducting business in Peachtree Corners is the low cost. There is a zero millage rate in Peachtree Corners which means no municipal property taxes - either for commercial or residential property. No other city in the metro Atlanta area can make this claim.

Easy access to Interstate 85 and a short drive to the world's busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, make Peachtree Corners especially attractive to international companies, corporations and small businesses. Many occupy Technology Park/Atlanta, a campus of low-rise office buildings nestled in a wooded, 500-acre parcel between two major thoroughfares.

In addition to the more than 40,000 people who call Peachtree Corners home, the city is the headquarters of numerous technology and life sciences companies including IT services company 5Q Partners, and the transdermal research and development company, 4P Therapeutics. It is also the regional headquarters of large, national and international companies including Comcast, Crawford and Co., and Hapag-Lloyd.

A 20-acre Town Center was completed in 2019, creating a place for the community to gather. The Town Center, with its 2-acre Town Green, is at the heart of the city's Entertainment District. An outdoor amphitheater, children's play area, and well-known eateries routinely draw thousands of people. While the Town Center is bustling, the waters of the Chattahoochee River provide a place to unwind and rejuvenate the soul. Fishermen enjoy trout fishing in the river for much of the year. Other recreational activity include a multiuse trail system which starts in Tech Park and will ultimately loop 12 miles around the city.
