I am a white single male moving to Atlanta from Columbus, OH. I just got a job in atlanta and will be relocating there in about 2-3 weeks from now. Today is the 21st of January 2007. My new job is located at the intersection of I 85 and I 285. Any suggestions where to live. I want to spend about 800 a month. I have a dog, so a little fenced in area would be great. My new boss recomended Sandy Springs or Dunwoody because I would be going against the rush hour traffic.

I agree with your boss. Dunwoody/Sandy Spring is probably best location for your job location. You can find a nice neighborhood near MARTA train in dunwoody. One property is called Post Dunwoody. Anyway, the whole neighborhood has five or six apartment complex. A lot of young couples and college students live that neighborhood. For $800, you probably can only get one bedroom. It is very convenient location. If you ever want to visit city, just hop up the train without worrying traffic.

I think that they do. Call them just want to make sure. However, there probably will be some pet deposits you have to pay. All those apartments are gated community, by the way.

Default ATL bound

Great info. I will be visiting Atlanta next weekend to look for a place and I will put this place on top of my list.

Does anyone know of any apartmnets that have a dog run. Up here in Ohio we have dog runs which are little fenced in areas where dogs can run to release some of that built up apartment energy that they tend to build up.

Default Dog Parks

I haven't heard of apartment communities with dog runs.

Atlanta is 'Dog Friendly'---there is a nice park/sports complex on Ashford Dunwoody Rd where many walk their dogs and Jones Bridge Park/Peachtree Corners --part of the Chattahoochee River Park system is about 30 minutes away.

Lots of places to get out and about with your dog.

Many apts prefer 25lb dogs.

You will have many options for housing in this area--maybe renting a small house with a fenced yard would be better for you if you have a larger breed?

I have no idea what you might find appropriate but it sounds like you will be in the Perimeter Mall area---you could look in the Peachtree Corners area too --considered 'Norcross/Gwinnett' but Fulton/Sandy Springs & DeKalb/Dunwoody and Peachtree Corners/Gwinnett all come together in that vicinity.

Thanks for the info. My dog is about 40 lbs.

A house would be a better option for me I think. What areas did you say are good for renting a house?

I can afford to spend up to 900 if I really like the place.

Default Houses/Dogs

Derek--

I sent you a PM.

There are houses for rent in what might be considered the southern part of Dunwoody/closer to Chamblee that might be around $800. Along some rds like--Ashford Dunwoody/Flowers Rd and then out further to Peachtree Corners--a road called Spalding Drive actually runs back into Dunwoody proper. I cannot explain how.

Look at this map to get some idea of how Fulton/DeKalb/Gwinnett intersect>>>

>>>(Actually in Gwinnett/Norcross--yet not far from where you will be working---I like this area myself
