Generalizations about specific counties like that are unfair, and inaccurate. All depends on where exactly you live in the county. Downtown Marietta, Smyrna, Vinings? Downtown Atlanta or Roswell. Downtown Decatur. There are both urban and walkable areas in all the metro counties, and tons of car-oriented suburban sprawl.

Yes, there is plenty of sprawl within Fulton and CoA still. No need to push things further out of the core. Cobb is further out of the core. Locate your business in the core and there are still plenty of close in suburban options to choose from. But you will not get real urban lifestyle options by locating in Cobb.

Well again I guess my reality disagrees with your statements. Since I live in an urban setting, ITP, in Cobb.

I really doubt you live somewhere most of the world would consider an urban setting.

At least a third of the city of Atlanta is not only not urban, but not even suburban so drop the arrogance.

It must be hard to be a suburban booster these days... so much defensiveness.

This exact statement applies to most of the supposed urban settings within the city of Atlanta. We call Midtown "walkable"- other cities would call it suburban.
