Gwinnett development would include Lidl, 180 senior homes

Lidl has applied to build a new location in Duluth, city documents show.

The German-owned grocery chain first entered the metro Atlanta market with locations in Snellville and Cobb County. The expansion could continue with a proposed 36,000 square foot store on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

The store is part of a proposal for Marketplace Village, a shopping center that would include Lidl, an “active adult senior living community” and a parcel that could house a business like a restaurant or retail store, documents filed with the city say. The senior community would have 180 homes, and the undetermined business could be up to 8,500 square feet. The project “is designed to be a natural extension to the Sugarloaf Marketplace development” across the street, a Lidl representative said in a rezoning application. 

The rezoning application will be voted upon by the Duluth Planning Commission on Aug. 19. The Duluth City Council will consider the project at its Sept. 9 meeting.
