Save the Date for the Gwinnett Place Mall Revitalization Charette!
Gwinnett Place CID, Gwinnett County and the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) partnered together to craft a strategy to redevelop the Gwinnett Place Mall site, and the planning firm VHB has been hard at work heading the revitalization strategy efforts. Throughout the revitalization process the team has encouraged community involvement in creating a transformed Gwinnett Place Mall site. Even more exciting is that community members will get another chance to be involved in the process during next month’s Gwinnett Place Mall Revitalization Charette!

The Gwinnett Place Mall Revitalization team is inviting Gwinnett County community members April 20 and 21 to a Gwinnett Place Mall site planning and design charette which will take place at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites (3530 Breckinridge Boulevard). The charette will feature workshops to gather further community feedback and see the progress on a solution for revitalizing the mall.

Be sure to check the Gwinnett Place To Be website for details coming soon and in the meantime, try the fun city planning activities where you can actually build your own version of the new Gwinnett Place Mall site online!
