Peachtree Corners Town Center opens with supportive crowd

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).
