PROGRESS: Rowen generating international interest in eastern Gwinnett County

The nearly 2,000-acre Rowen development just outside Dacula is expected to take decades to build out, but the prospect of a new research development that would be on par with North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park is bringing a lot of interest to Gwinnett County.
