Located at 3700 Commerce Center Drive, Gwinnett Commerce Center is a premier Class A office building that has been institutionally owned and maintained since it was constructed in 1989. As the tallest office building in the Northeast Atlanta submarket, the building provides excellent visibility and stunning views. It is also the only office building in the submarket with a covered parking deck, which is attached to the lobby by a covered walkway.

The contemporary design is highlighted by a two-story atrium, a reflective glass exterior, full-height windows and granite finishes. Other amenities include a full-service café, a conference facility, on-site management, 24/7 security, and convenient entry and exit via multiple access points.

Cushman & Wakefield has also been selected to provide property management and leasing services for the new owner.
