Gwinnett Place CID elects one new board member

Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District, a self-taxing district that uses additional commercial property taxes to accelerate infrastructure improvements, security enhancements and economic development in the Gwinnett Place area, recently elected one new.

Ben Yorker, director of development for Northwood Ravin’s Charlotte office, was voted on the board. He joins six other board members working to enhance Gwinnett Place through improvement projects and by engaging more property owners to participate in the overall redevelopment efforts of the greater Gwinnett Place district.

Yorker’s employer is Northwood Ravin a luxury apartment developer that owns multiple properties in the Carolinas, Florida, Texas and metro Atlanta, and recently purchased more than 11 acres at the Gwinnett Place Mall that was formerly Sears.

“We believe Ben will bring fresh ideas to the table and be a great addition to our strong board,” said Leo Wiener, Chairman of the CID Board of Directors and President of Ackerman Retail. “Ben’s background in mixed-use and multifamily development could bring new opportunities and developments to the Gwinnett Place area.”
