Around the Block

A pleasantly peaceful suburb set apart from the hectic fray of Atlanta.

The city of Dunwoody incorporated in 2008, putting its neighborhood vision into action with smart planning. The lower portion, which includes part of the busy Perimeter commercial area, is laden with high-rise office buildings, shopping malls, retail complexes, and hospitals. Meanwhile, the community is close to major highway routes and one of the few suburbs with commuter train service.

What to expect:
Country clubs to the north, high-rise business center at the southern edge, and a quaint village crossing in the middle.

The massive sprawl of Atlanta has incited intense community spirit within each individual neighborhood as residents come together to carve out their local niche. Dunwoody excels at such efforts, most notably supporting the active preservation of the historic farmhouse properties at its center.

The lifestyle:
A relaxed and comparatively quiet community with ample retail and commercial presence.

Though growing rapidly, Dunwoody remains serene partially due to city ordinances. Upon initial incorporation, the city mandated greenspace expansion and improvement, and also curtailed high-density housing permits. This is a neighborhood committed to its wide sidewalks, popular parks, and tight-knit focus. Dunwoody also claims bragging rights as one of the few Atlanta suburbs with a solid MARTA train line presence; the North Springs Station easily takes commuters from a quiet residential haven through the central corridor of the city and down to the airport with stops all along the way.
