Location

Dunwoody’s competitive advantage is linked to its ideal location as the heart of metro Atlanta. Dunwoody has become the nexus of employment, transportation, educated workforce, and population density. The location provides unequaled access to talent, technology, transportation and lifestyle amenities.

For a company to be successful, exposure to workforce and markets has to be a top priority. Dunwoody fills both of those needs and more. Access to GA-400 and I-285 is quick and easy via multiple routes. Four MARTA stations complement highway access, making Dunwoody one of the most accessible business locations in Metro Atlanta.

People

People from all around the U.S. and the world have come to call Dunwoody home. The city’s unprecedented access to transportation, higher education, economic opportunities, and local lifestyle amenities make Dunwoody an ideal place to work, live, and thrive. 

In the next 30 years, the Atlanta Regional Commission anticipated growth of 3 million people and 1.5 million new jobs. Coupled with Dunwoody’s educated population, where 63 percent hold bachelor’s degrees or higher, companies have a concentrated and qualified pool of talent to grow and expand.

Business

The City of Dunwoody has become a recognized hot spot for new business investment. The variety of industries headquartered in Dunwoody continues to widen, outpacing the expansion of business sectors in many other communities. The mainstay of Dunwoody’s business sectors continues to be corporate and regional headquarters, information technology and software, financial services, and most recently, a growing healthcare IT segment.

Infrastructure

Market forces, large-scale infrastructure projects, and regional transportation investments are all contributing toward the continued growth of the Dunwoody and Perimeter market. Dunwoody thrives by partnering with organizations that share our mission to provide the highest quality of life for those who live, work, or play in our community and to foster an environment where businesses can prosper. Improvements include the Ashford Dunwoody Diverging Diamond Interchange, new sidewalks and bike lanes, Revive 285, and the coming SR400 and I285 Interchange project

Living

Smart living is what Dunwoody is all about. It’s a well-situated, vibrant, fun place to live, work, and visit, and it’s different from any other place in the Metro Atlanta region. There’s something about this convenient lifestyle that draws young singles, established professionals, growing families, and empty-nesters to create a thriving community.

Future

As cities move increasingly into a knowledge-based economy, the kind of talented people each city attracts will determine whether it wins or loses in the campaign for future prosperity. The City of Dunwoody is focusing efforts on providing the types of residential communities that suit these changing tastes. Dunwoody is working to create multi-modal connectivity between city districts, create a “downtown” with revitalization to Dunwoody Village Parkway, and continue the Georgetown redevelopment, “Project Renaissance.”
