- Business & Development
For over a century, Downtown Historic Norcross has been the economic and social hub of the community. Several of its buildings were originally constructed in 1890, and over time have been home to mercantile stores, livery stables, restaurants and churches and even a theatre. Today, it remains an energetic center of enterprise, with unique retail and an eclectic offering of cuisine and entertainment, as well as services such as automotive parts, legal support, and accounting and insurance services among others. The downtown facade was recently revitalized with the addition of new LED lights in the trees along the sidewalks. A music system is now in place and new brick crosswalks installed. The beautification was done by the Downtown Development Authority's Design Committee working with the Public Works Department. Also, the merchants teamed together to clean up and beautify the back side of the downtown buildings along the previously non-descript "Skin Alley".
As a result, Downtown Historic Norcross had kept its historic charm, with a trendy touch beautifully reflected in its stroller-friendly sidewalks and upscale businesses.
