Avalon-esque project will ‘change life in Gwinnett,’ developer says

The massive mixed-use project in the works for Gwinnett County’s Infinite Energy Center property will be a game-changer, officials said — and its getting closer to becoming a reality.

Mark Toro, a managing partner of North American Properties, recently provided more details and a possible construction timeline for the project, which is inspired in part by the success of Alpharetta’s Avalon development

North American is responsible for that project, as well as the revival of Midtown Atlanta’s Atlantic Station. 

“If we are able to work hand and glove and carry this forward,” Toro said, “it will change life in Gwinnett, as it has in north Fulton.”

In an unusual public-private partnership, the development will go up on county-owned property.
