County officials are seeking input from the public on what to do with the moribund Gwinnett Place Mall, acquired last year for $23 million from a developer that failed to deliver on its promises.

The 39-acre property on Pleasant Hill Road is the subject of a revitalization strategy dubbed “Gwinnett Place to Be” and locals are being asked to choose between having a mixed-use town center or a cultural district. Both concepts call for creating a centralized park and demolishing the existing mall, with the exception of big-box spaces and parking lots; both would have residences, offices, retail and about 16 acres of parks and bike paths, as well as a transit hub.
