They will have to commute and unless more transit options are provided, they will have to drive.
Do the new condos or townhomes not allow children or other livestock?

I don't think that you can enforce a ban on children?

Sounds like Avalon may be a little behind Krog Street market but they seem to be holding their own.

Every time I hear a child go "moo", I will think of this.

You know, there's that one building in the perimeter that has plenty of vegetation growing out of it, quite intentionally. Good place to graze your kids.

Avalon is so Alpharetta it isn't funny. Like the evolution of the gated golf community that's so big it could have its own zip code. I still prefer a place that has multiple mixed-use instead of one big one. It just seems more urban that way.

Not surprised it's doing well. It's still mixed-use in an upscale area, after all.

Dunwoody is proposing a new connector. It sounds like they have their planning process well under way.

Quote:
In the face of a building binge that will bring thousands of new workers and residents to Dunwoody, the city is pitching a new road to connect office parks and other projects to I-285.

The proposed Westside Connector would relieve congestion at the new diverging diamond interchange at Ashford Dunwoody Road and along Hammond Drive, city leaders say. The road would take westbound motorists from I-285 under Ashford Dunwoody to Perimeter Center Parkway near State Farmís new corporate campus. The road would also feature an eastbound lane that will provide motorists another option to connect to westbound I-285.

Planners also envision a 12-foot-wide paved trail to provide pedestrian access to the Dunwoody MARTA station from nearby office parks.

Cost of the project, which involves tunneling under busy Ashford Dunwoody Road, is estimated at $16 million to $21 million, including engineering. Owners of a planned redevelopment site are in talks to donate land valued at about $15 million for the connector. Mayor Mike Davis said the city, which has an annual budget of about $31 million, will seek state and federal funds to help complete the project.

The city has been in discussions with state transportation leaders for about a year, he said. The road would take five years to design, permit and build, and will require state and federal approvals.

There is nothing urban about Avalon. All visitors still drive to the site, it is surrounded by parking lots and out parcels, it is disconnected from the streets around it, and it places cars above people.

In fairness, there will eventually be a MARTA station located a couple hundred yards from the development.
