Duluth, Duluth, Duluth Is On Fire

I recently took a field trip OTP to meet the boy for lunch. He works in the outskirts of Duluth in Gwinnett County. In case you didn’t know, Gwinnett is Great and Success Lives there.

All jokes aside, Duluth seems to be a happening place. I passed at least four Korean churches. It’s so good to see my Asian brethren thriving. Downtown Duluth is booming, as well. There’s a lot of new construction in the new neighborhoods surrounding it, and the Historic Duluth sector is also expanding with a mix of Mainstreet USA and Intown architecture. The newly revitalized town square consists of quaint little shops, cafes, the town hall, mixed use zoning, and a beautiful park area with a magnificent fountain. I was quite impressed as I didn’t expect any of this. We ate a little cafe/wine shop called Park Cafe that labels itself as “casual southern dining.” It’s in the first story of a historic home. The dining room itself was small, but in warmer weather they open up the patio for dining. The food was delicious, including the wonderful fried green tomatoes and she-crab soup.

Within the “Mainstreet” area sits the Towne Park Place residential area consisting of townhomes, lofts, and flats built by Dan Woodley Homes. These homes are pretty stylish and reminiscent of some of the homes you’d find intown, but what surprised me most were the intown prices. One loft we saw priced at $349,000! But you know, it’s all about location, location, location.
