Suburban flair

The community is minutes away from Interstate 85, which offers access around Greater Atlanta. The nearby intersection of I-85 and Pleasant Hill Road offers several shopping and dining destinations, and the area abounds in employment options with about 60 company headquarters scattered around Gwinnett County. Some of the largest employers include the Gwinnett County Public School System, Publix, Walmart and Kroger, according to the county’s website.

Investors are flocking to suburban areas like Lawrenceville due to its population surge and offering of quality products like Coventry Pointe with enormous upside potential. This community is one of the few properties in the submarket that hasn’t undergone wholesale interior renovations, providing a unique opportunity for the new owner,” said Campbell in a prepared statement.
