suwanee town center: SUWANEE GA - SUWANEE DAY FESTIVAL - 09/21/10 10:41 AM
I must admit that it is a little difficult to get caught up in the excitement that fall brings to the South (and probably other areas of the country) when the fall festivals take center stage and the temperature outside is still in the mid-90's!!!!! However, Suwanee was the first in the area to kick off their fall festival this past Saturday. 
To be totally honest, I did not go to the festival which is kicked off by a parade. It was just too darn hot! However, wanting to be a part of the frenzy, I did help in this year's … (0 comments)

suwanee town center: A SIGHT TO BEHOLD!!!! - 01/23/09 06:49 AM

To say the new City Hall is majestic (at 23,600 square feet) would be an understatement. And, there is no doubt in anyone's mind the new City Hall would never have become a realty without the support of its citizens! With a population of just over 16,000 in 2007, cities twice our size don't have the support of their citizens to erect a monument of this magnitude to represent their town.
The ground breaking for the new City Hall began in December, 2007. And, it won't be long before city staff members and officials begin their … (1 comments)

suwanee town center: SUWANEE GOES HOLLYWOOD! - 10/04/08 03:12 AM
Article written by:  Carole Townsend/Gwinnett Daily Post
Driving through Suwanee, a newcomer might think the historic district and the thriving Town Center look like a postcard or a well-designed movie set. Three young men - couldn't agree more.
The next notch on the progressive city's belt of accomplishments will be a movie set. Filming of "Exit 111", an independent film will begin in April, 2009. "It's a story we know, about people we know," said Joel Hoffman, director, executive producer and one of the writers of the script.
Picture a hybrid flick with the feel of TV's popular "Friends," humor … (1 comments)

suwanee town center: Suwanee Revs Up to Revamp 2002 Old Town Master Plan - 09/14/08 09:08 AM

This month the city of Suwanee will begin the process of updating the 2002 Old Town Master Plan.In a collaborative effort, city officials, residents and consultants will attempt to blend old with new, past with present. 
Quiet, quaint, and once the hub of Suwanee's business district, Historic Old Town is a short distance southwest of Suwanee Town Center.  Just off Buford Highway, which runs directly through Suwanee, buildings like Pierce's Corner Antiques and Rhodes House are reminiscent of days gone by, yet are still an integral part of Suwanee.  By revamping the 2002 Old Town Master Plan, city officials will attempt … (0 comments)

suwanee town center: Suwanee Day Festival - 09/04/08 09:20 AM

The Suwanee Day Festival has always been a community festival.  The first Suwanee Day Festival dates back to May, 1984 and was held behind the current Gwinnett County Fire Station #13  - one year before Suwanee had its first traffic signal  - with about 75 people in attendance!  The area was growing and many new residents were moving into Suwanee. Not knowing much about our city, the hope was the festival would allow new comers to get involved, create a sense of community, while at the same time providing a venue where people would be able to show off their talents or skills.
By 1990 the Suwanee Day Festival was moved … (2 comments)

suwanee town center: DO YOU WANT TO SELL....OR DO YOU WANT A SIGN IN THE YARD? - 04/24/08 02:02 AM
Quoting Paul Pastro from a recent article in "Broker Agent", "No matter how fast the dog runs, it will never catch the car. The dog will never slow the car down. And, the dog will never bite a moving tire. What must the dog be thinking?"                     
What a great analogy when we compare his statement to what we are seeing take place in the market today. The current state of the real estate market has been a crash course for all of us; brokers, agents, sellers, buyers and the banks!  Even investors who thought they had paved their road to gold are scratching their heads  wondering what … (3 comments)

suwanee town center: Suwanee GA - The Gateway! - 04/21/08 02:16 PM
When Money Magazine rated Suwanee, GA as the #10 best place to live in the United States, they had one objection. For those of us who live in Suwanee, you won't have any problem guessing what the one objection was...You got it! It is the commercial district along I-85.
But the city officials of Suwanee were already making plans to give this particular area a desperately needed face lift. As the project evolves, thanks to the continuing support of Suwanee residents, this area will exhibit a dynamic multi-purpose commercial development; thus, providing our city with a distinct gateway to the place we are all … (2 comments)

Suwanee has come a long way over the past several years. It is my opinion that the City of Suwanee has done an excellent job in creating a live, work and play environment for its residence. Among many of the improvements, is Suwanee Town Center. A focal point to our community and a "hot" spot for our community. If you have had the opportunity to enjoy any one of these merchants, I hope you will share your experience in the comments area provided below.

suwanee town center: SUWANEE GA - DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN??? - 04/09/08 03:05 PM
                                 Over my 20 years as a Suwanee resident I sure have seen A LOT of changes. I like what I am seeing, but it does give me pause to take a moment and look back... and, remember when? Here is what I remember. I hope all you Suwanee locals will share with me your "I remember when". Let's just see how far back our memories can take us:

suwanee town center: SUWANEE, GA....WHERE THE PAST AND PRESENT COME TOGETHER! - 03/28/08 03:23 PM
As a resident of Suwanee for....20 years, I have seen a lot of changes. The good news is the city officials have listened to their citizens and have created a very desireable live, work and play environment. With plenty of green space, three city parks (so far), beautiful trails winding along the Suwanee Creek it is no wonder it has been ranked as the #10 best place to live by Money Magazine.
As an avid visitor to the Suwanee Creek Park, I can attest to the fact it is a tranquil get-away where you can enjoy the wonderful sounds of nature, … (0 comments)
