Turner, Wood & Smith Insurance broke ground on its new headquarters in the New Holland area off Jesse Jewell Parkway on Tuesday, Feb. 27.
The 16,000-square-foot headquarters will be at 1514 Community Way between Frances Meadows Aquatic Center and Gainesville Middle School.
TWS was founded in 1905 and operates throughout Northeast Georgia. The company sold its current location at 100 Brenau Ave., where it has been since 1989, to the city of Gainesville for a possible future parking deck. The insurance company is leasing that Brenau Avenue building from the city until it moves to the Community Way building.
