In the late 1960s, businessman Paul Duke pitched the idea of creating Peachtree Corners, a planned community where people could live, work, and play in the same quality-controlled environment, thus diminishing the need for long commutes. In 1967, Duke initiated the planning of the office component of Peachtree Corners, Technology Park Atlanta, a campus of low-rise buildings that would house low-pollution, high technology industries to employ, among others, engineer graduates from Georgia Tech.
The man who turned Paul Duke’s vision into executive neighborhoods in Peachtree Corners was Jim Cowart, who came to Peachtree Corners in the late 1970s as a land developer. The first neighborhood developed by Cowart was Spalding Corners. Development continued in Peachtree Corners and finally in 2012 was incorporated as Gwinnett County’s 16th city. Growth continues today with developers investing in live, work, play communities, while established traditional neighborhoods maintain their appeal due Peachtree Corner’s desirable location and proximity to I-285 and Atlanta.
