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, I-85, I-285 and GA 400 and just 30 minutes northeast of Atlanta. Founded on July 1, 2012, it is home to over 40,000 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. The city by the river is also home to regional, national and international headquarters for a number of corporations.
A Pro-Business Environment
Companies thrive in the city's pro-business environment which offers a zero millage rate. The Gwinnett city is also home to a new business incubator, Prototype Prime, which promotes and supports the entrepreneurial spirit. It’s also home to Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners. Created in partnership with Sprint, this living laboratory will be a setting for testing autonomous vehicles and smart city technology in a real-world environment.
