More than 4,000 residents, guests and dignitaries helped celebrate the official opening of the Peachtree Corners Town Center and unveil the area’s new 2-acre Town Green. When complete, the 21-acre development will include 15 restaurants, numerous shops, office space and 73 townhomes.
“Our vision, simply put, was to create a place where our citizens could make memories together. A place where parents can be confident that their children can play safely while they enjoy music, or a movie, a meal with friends,” said Mayor Mike Mason at the ribbon-cutting.
The event began with a ribbon-cutting at the Town Green entrancce, followed by a Children’s Plaza dedication, and recognition of the city’s Veterans’ Monument, including raising of the flags and pledge of allegiance lead by Cub Scout Pack 575. A parade led by the Norcross High School Marching Band brought in residents for the official opening of the Town Green celebrated by activating a multi-jet fountain and tossing out inaugural Frisbees. Strolling musicians, stilt-walkers, balloon sculpture artists, plus an array of food and drink filled the afternoon.
At 8 p.m. American Southern rock band, Atlanta Rhythm Section, took the stage before a grand finale of the evening — a synchronized drone show that lit the sky, ending with the letters PCTC (Peachtree Corners Town Center).
