Around the Block

Sandy springs:
Enjoying its big boom and poised for even greater growth in the years to come.

Straddling the northern Fulton county arc along the I-285 loop, Sandy Springs spreads almost equally both inside and outside the perimeter, allowing it to continue its rapid development as a city. High-density housing clusters are scattered around main thoroughfares while gated communities and luxury estates wind through older, established sections.

What to expect:
A well-appointed and self-sustaining community with something for everyone.

Bustling with commercial, retail, and corporate activity yet equally suited to family life, Sandy Springs has grown into a strong neighborhood with good schools and great amenities for both residents and visitors. The recent arrival of the City Springs development formed an attractively planned downtown with a walkable live/work/shop/dine format and a gorgeous performing arts venue.

The lifestyle:
A pleasing balance of laid-back, family-friendly pockets and active commercial stretches.

The two sides of Sandy Springs’ personality peacefully coexist in a symbiotic bliss. The large corporate enclaves fuel the continual growth and upgrade of residential areas while creative retail ventures complement them and add color.

Unexpected appeal:
Natural wonders right under your nose.

The Chattahoochee River runs for 20 miles along the north and west sides of Sandy Springs, with three National Park sites within the city limits. The greenspaces along its shores provide spectacular sylvan sanctuaries just a stone’s throw from the municipal hustle-bustle. For hikers, kayakers, and paddleboarders, Morgan Falls, the Palisades Trails, Cochran Shoals, and Island Ford are just a few of the spots to explore.

You'll fall in love with:
The “city within a city” feel.

Incorporating as its own city in 2005, Sandy Springs quickly established itself as a satellite mini-metropolis hovering slightly north of Atlanta. Corporations quickly took note of the location’s boons and set up shop, ushering in a flurry of development. Efficient transportation options — easy access to major highways and two MARTA train stations — contributed to the transformation of this commuter suburb into a destination of its own.
