Welcome to Suwanee Town Center
A vibrant mixed-use area, anchored by a 10-acre urban-style park, Town Center embodies Suwanee's vision for "live…work…play…shop." It is the place that comes to mind when you think of Suwanee, offering a sense of community…a sense of belonging…a sense of home. First envisioned in 2002, Suwanee's, built-from-scratch Town Center is the physical and symbolic heart of our community.
Located at the intersection of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Buford Highway, two of Suwanee's busiest roadways, Town Center represents a bold and innovative response to two distinct community goals: to preserve open space and create more parks and to assemble a stand-out-in-the-crowd, energetic, and aesthetically appealing downtown and primary community gathering place.
A key component of downtown Suwanee, the award-winning Town Center project is a public-private partnership that envelopes more than 63 acres, including a 40-acre privately developed traditional neighborhood (Shadowbrook at Town Center). Town Center will encompass more than 100,000 square feet of retail space, 87,000 square feet of office space, 147 townhome and condominium units, 85 single-family homes, and, of course, the 10-acre Town Center Park.
Town Center also is home to Suwanee's iconic City Hall, opened in February 2009. City Hall is located at 330 Town Center Avenue.
Suwanee’s ‘front yard’
Opened in December 2003, Town Center Park functions as Suwanee's "front yard" and primary gathering place. Its classic and attractive design, which features three interlinking walkways, the largest interactive fountain in Gwinnett County, large open areas, and a performance stage with a 1,000-seat terraced amphitheater area, make Town Center Park ideal for community gatherings.
The park also is a great place to meet a friend or two for a walk or jog or for some unstructured play time—splashing in the fountain, flying kites, riding a bike or pushing a scooter, throwing a Frisbee, or kicking a ball.
Town Center Park is where Suwanee gathers for community events. People from throughout metro Atlanta have come to the park to catch musical performances by regional and national favorites. Town Center Park has successfully hosted intimate events for only a few hundred as well as rock concerts with nearly 15,000 in attendance. The annual "celebration of community," Suwanee Day, brings about 40,000 people to the park the third Saturday in September each year.
