Located at the intersection of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Buford Highway, Suwanee 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.
Suwanee's built-from-scratch Town Center is the physical and symbolic heart of our community. 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.
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. Suwanee Fest – our annual celebration of community – brings approximately 40,000 people to the park the third weekend in September each year.
The award-winning Town Center 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 currently encompasses 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 the 10-acre Town Center Park. It is also home to Suwanee's iconic City Hall, opened in February 2009.
A vibrant mixed-use area, anchored by a 10-acre urban-style park, Town Center embodies Suwanee's vision for live, work, play.
