Welcome to Peachtree Corners
The thriving new city taking Gwinnett County by storm
Gwinnett County’s newest city, Peachtree Corners, embodies the booming, entrepreneurial spirit of the county. With a western border defined by the rambling waters of the Chattahoochee River, plentiful park space, and easy access to major highways, including the Georgia 400, I-85, and I-285, it isn’t hard to see why developers chose to build a modern master-planned community in this ideal location.
Established in 2012, Peachtree Corner has been designed for excellence. Thriving, hip, and on the front end of the latest innovations, Peachtree Corner includes Technology Park Atlanta, which is home to Fortune 500 companies and several national and international corporate headquarters. Its business-friendly economic atmosphere is one of the main reasons that the city is already Gwinnett County’s largest. Founded with the hope the residents would be able to work, play, and live within one city, Peachtree Corner more than exceeds expectations.
Most homes in Peachtree Corners were built in the 1980s or after as the city grew, expanded, and blossomed. Here you’ll encounter charming townhomes in the city center, luxury apartment units, riverfront estates rich with old-world elegance, single-family homes in highly desirable subdivisions, and custom-build transitional style homes and modern Colonials.
