The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards

April 2023Best in Land Winner: Rowen

A research hub planned for 2,000 acres, the project is modeled after the Research Triangle in Raleigh Durham, North Carolina, where biopharmaceutical and fintech companies-built campuses with thousands of jobs, formed partnerships with universities to develop the next generation of talent. Rowen’s directors see the potential for their new project.

The concept: Gwinnett County began purchasing the property in 2020. It was the vision of past Gwinnett County Chairwoman Charlotte Nash.

The impact: It could create up to 100,000 jobs over its lifespan a generate more than $1 billion in revenue by 2035. Late last year, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp told the Chronicle: The Research Triangle is mentioned a lot, but this is a unique piece of property, a unique vision specific to this area, specific to this state.

Big picture: Gwinnett County is heavily developed with retail, but Rowen brings a new perspective — and potentially white-collar jobs in medicine, technology and environment.
