ATLANTA (March 22, 2017) – Falcons All Pro wide receiver Julio Jones joined his business partners Jon Guven of Guven’s Fine Jewelry, and the development team from Ivy Creek Partners, LLC to announce Ariston, the highly anticipated work/live/play mixed-use development adjacent to the Mall of Georgia.
The announcement and unveiling of the name Ariston was made today at the Georgia State Capitol. Rep. David Clark (R-Buford) and Sen. Brandon Beach (R-Alpharetta) joined Jones, Guven, Jonathan Garza, Managing Partner, Ivy Creek Partners, LLC, Erik Shapiro (Ivy Creek) and Greg Nelson (Ivy Creek) to unveil the official Ariston logo.
“I am very excited about Ariston, as it will bring an urban live, work, and play experience to suburban Gwinnett County,” said Julio Jones. “I am looking forward to seeing Ariston come to life.”
Ivy Creek chose the name Ariston for the development because it is a Greek word that translates to “the very best.”
“Julio Jones represents the very best in the NFL, and our development will emulate his commitment to excellence on and off the field,” said Jonathan Garza, Managing Partner, Ivy Creek Partners, LLC."
"I am extremely excited that Jon and Julio selected Gwinnett County as the home for the future smart city mixed-use development. The economic impact this project brings is remarkable, as it will create 300 plus jobs and is a $200-million-dollar private investment for Gwinnett County,” said State House Representative David Clark (District-98).
“This is a “huge win” for the entire state. This proves that Georgia is a leading state in the cutting edge of technology and a great place to do business. I want to congratulate Jon Guven and Julio Jones, partners at JJ360, LLC, Jonathan Garza, Managing Partner at Ivy Creek Partners, LLC, and Farooq Mughal, Managing Partner at MS Global Partners, LLC for strengthening entrepreneurship and bringing an economic development investment to the State of Georgia and Gwinnett County,” added Clark.
