When was the last time there was "elbow room" in the Perimeter Center area?

Dunwoody and Sandy Springs? I live in non-PC Dunwoody right now, and I can say that the answer is a big NO. There will be exceptions, namely Perimeter Center and "downtown" Sandy Springs (once its redevelopment is finished). Other than those two areas, it's all apartment complexes and single-family homes on relatively large lots, and will likely stay that way short of something amazing happening, like a Doraville-Perimeter-Cumberland MARTA line.

Are there more towers planned for State Farm or is it just the one currently under construction?

As I understand it, from reading, there are a couple of new residential developments that are relatively dense in Dunwoody and multiple dense residential developments in Sandy Springs.

I think some of the new apartment complexes on the Sandy Springs side of PC are very dense, and I think some the apartments coming on Roswell Road in SS are very dense too.

I was with a friend today from SS and she is very concerned about the amount of apartment developments that have been approved there.

I thought one of the main points of the latter-part of the SS cityhood movement was the issue of too many apartment complexes?

It's interesting that this is starting to happen...

I think the new ones are of the $1800 a month for a one bedroom variety.

With rentals, that can always change.


The point is that you need a balance. In a given area, for the most part, the number of residents in renter-occupied housing should not exceed 40% (roughly).
