Gwinnett County’s ambitious, 2,000-acre life sciences campus has seven companies interested, said Mason Ailstock, president of the Rowen Foundation.
His foundation is starting to build the Rowen project, which aims to provide a home for research and business development in agriculture, medicine, and environment. The project is located about halfway between Athens and Atlanta and will include lab and office space as well as residential real estate and community amenities.
The foundation is starting to build the infrastructure needed to support tenants, which is expected to be done in early 2024. Then development could start.
