15 Oct The Exchange at Gwinnett
The Exchange @ Gwinnett is a multi-phased mixed-use project in Buford, Georgia being developed by BCDC and Fuqua Development. Site work began in Q4 of 2019 and the various phases will follow over the ensuing three (3) years. The project includes entertainment venues (Andretti, TopGolf, LA Fitness), numerous restaurants, a Sprouts grocery and retail establishments, 500 plus multi-family apartment units, and a senior living facility.
The project site is located due south of the Mall of Georgia in a retail node of Gwinnett County that is underserved by this type of mixed-use project. The site is central to residential and retail concentrations of Gwinnett County, the second largest county in the state of Georgia, and is highly visible directly on I-85 near the I-985 split. 758,000 people live within a 25-min drive time. Additionally, the site is within a 30-min drive of Gainesville and Jefferson. It is a 60-min drive from Athens and the University of GA campus. The site is within a super-regional retail node that includes the Mall of Georgia, a 1.8MM SF center attracting approximately 14M shoppers annually, the largest shopping mall in Georgia.
