This area is rapidly becoming a huge employment and retail hub (with more and and residential too) it is ITP snobbishness to dismiss this as suburban.

There are projects happening like this in midtown / downtown too like the 15th street connection. I say more street connectivity anywhere in the metro is good.

so if i understand correctly... there would be an exit off 285 westbound that would branch... one going to ashford dunwoody, and one to perimeter center pkwy? similar to the i75 exit to 17th, 14th, and 10th (one main exit then several sub-exits)?

Second, this statement , had me laughing. How can they compare an edge city to Midtown? Midtown is not a sprawl of office parks. Dunwoody is trying to change the sprawl of office parks, but it is still dominated by car-centric development, surrounded by parking. Making pedestrian travel dangerous.
The Goldkist building is off the road and building this road would create a grid of roads that will lead to this property getting redeveloped.
If this road is built as a complete street, with sidewalks and bike lanes, it could be a positive for the area and lead to that corner becoming more urban. Until they slow the speed limits down, start orienting development towards the sidewalk and away for surface parking, PC will still be dangerous of peds/cyclist.
