Background: The City of Norcross, Georgia recently awarded a Design/Build contract to Pond Constructors to design and construct the City’s new Pinnacle Park project. Pinnacle Park will be located off Brook Hollow Parkway adjacent to Pinnacle Center Business Park, at 250 Pinnacle Way, Norcross, GA 30071. The new park will be built around a small lake, which currently functions as a storm water retention facility. Once Pond’s team is complete with the project the lake will be an amenity for families in the Norcross area to enjoy.
Plans for this project include the demolition of an existing two-story office building as well as the clearing of downed/damaged trees and overgrown vegetation. Existing trails, dilapidated bridges, and deteriorated sidewalks will be reclaimed. Numerous recreational and green infrastructures will be added inclusive of the following: playground, fitness circuit course, octagonal grand pavilion and two picnic pavilions, BBQ/grilling facilities, bathrooms and storage, nature inspired landscaped areas, walking trails, additional parking spaces, lighting and signage, among others.
One of the most refreshing elements of this project is the commitment of the City of Norcross to observe sustainability practices, which includes adherence to the guidelines of the ARC’s Green Communities Program. One of the primary requirements is to use goats to do the initial clearing of overgrown vegetation.
