Gwinnett Place is one of the County’s largest economic drivers based on its concentration of corporations, restaurants, retailers, and hotels that call the district home with an annual $13.4 billion economic impact on the State of Georgia. Gwinnett Place is the central business district of one of the most diverse counties in the nation – a fact the CID is very proud to tout.
Gwinnett Place has the ability to become even greater than we are currently with the smart redevelopment of properties around the district that will maximize their density and create true live, work and walk environments that are better suited to meet the needs of our residents, employers, and visitors.
The CID has identified several catalyst sites that are readily available for new, more dense projects, and has various incentives in place to make it easier to find success and grow jobs in Gwinnett’s central business district.

Gwinnett Place Area Redevelopment Toolbox and Case Studies
The Gwinnett Place area has the potential to be one of the nation’s largest and most exciting redevelopment projects. The November 2021 Gwinnett Place Area Redevelopment Toolbox and Case Studies analyzes the tools and programs that might be used to promote the redevelopment of the Gwinnett Place Mall site and surrounding area. This report presents the tools and structures available right now in Gwinnett County and Georgia, as well as select tools that are used in other states and jurisdictions but are currently not available to use in Gwinnett County.
Gwinnett Place has a total annual economic impact of $13.4 billion from area business, and 27,904 jobs. The area has a significantly higher presence of Millennials and Generation Xers than Gwinnett County and the Atlanta MSA – greater Gwinnett Place has some of the strongest demographics for developers looking to tap into a diverse and growing region. In addition, Gwinnett Place is designated as an urban redevelopment area and comes with a variety of incentives including a Tax Allocation District (TAD), Opportunity Zone, and a redevelopment overlay that encourages density and provides expedited approvals.
As part of its efforts to promote area redevelopment, the GPCID worked with area property owners to identify sites that are ready for redevelopment opportunities. GPCID has specific information on each site, and are happy to share information in advance, upon request. Please fill out the form here, and we will be in touch with detailed information.
