LAWRENCEVILLE (GWINNETT/METRO ATLANTA) GA – April 11, 2018 - The City of Lawrenceville proudly joins together with Partnership Gwinnett to present, “Renaissance Gwinnett: Lawrenceville’s Vision Forward,” at the upcoming Economic Development Breakfast on Tuesday, April 17 from 7:30 – 9 a.m. at the City of Lawrenceville Public Works Complex, 435 West Pike St. Strategically positioned at the heart of Gwinnett, Lawrenceville is experiencing a resurgence of growth and expansion that is infusing not only the City, but also Greater Gwinnett, with regional economic impact, a solid core and infrastructure to support and grow Metro Atlanta’s most dynamic community. At the breakfast, guests will hear from nationally acclaimed developers Jim Borders of Novare Group, George Berkow of GB, Inc. and Rick Porter of Richport Properties, on how Lawrenceville’s new urban vision blends lifestyle with business development to create a metro-feel in suburban Atlanta.
Representing current developments including the South Lawn project, the Lawrenceville Housing Authority project that will provide improved multi-family units to existing housing authority residents, and the City View project along Oak Street—these improvements and expansions are propelling Lawrenceville forward and infusing Gwinnett’s core with an urban residential, retail, and cultural focus in a mixed-use environment. Together, these projects coupled with the City’s public investment in street improvements, parks and utilities and service infrastructure will total nearly $1 billion in the next 3 years.
The breakfast will showcase Lawrenceville’s new $20 million Public Works complex, which was an instrumental component to allow for further development in the City’s central business district. Included in this development is the South Lawn project, which will infuse the already well known and frequented Historic Downtown with over 600 residential living units, more than 15,000 sq. ft. of retail space, connect City Hall and the Police Station with the increasingly popular Lawrenceville Lawn and create a comprehensive walkable environment straight down to the Lawrenceville Square.
The meeting will also highlight the departments now housed at the newly opened complex including the City’s Gas, Electric, Damage Prevention, Fleet Maintenance, Streets and Sanitation departments. In honor of National Lineman Appreciation Day, held on April 18, the City of Lawrenceville will give a special tribute to its lineman who services the City with power support.
The City of Lawrenceville Electric Department provides electric power to most of the citizens within the city limits of Lawrenceville and is often the first on call in emergency situations.The breakfast is sold out; follow Lawrenceville on Facebook (@cityoflawrenceville) and Twitter (@GaLawrenceville) for updates throughout the meeting.
