www.GoodMorningGwinnett.com Officials hope next month to begin building Rowen, a 2,000-acre development in eastern Gwinnett County with the lofty goal of becoming a global destination for research and innovation in agriculture, medicine and environmental sciences.


“I’m just really excited to get groundbreaking underway and have that vision start coming to life,” said Mason Ailstock, president of the Rowen Foundation, the nonprofit overseeing the project. Gwinnett County bought the land two years ago and is funding Rowen until the development sustains itself.

The first shovels will begin laying a road into what is now pine forest north of Route 316, east of Dacula. Over the next few decades, the land will be developed into low- and medium-density research and office buildings, public green space, trails and a mixed-use village with multi-family homes.
