Not true; the largest business district of the region is Perimeter in the suburb of Sandy Springs. There's also the Cumberland business district in neighboring Cobb County, the region's fifth-largest business district with over 20M sq ft of office space. Alpharetta also has its own impressive business district in its own right which attract a lot of tech companies--well really the "Tech Corridor" that includes Roswell, Peachtree Corners, and John's Creek as well as Alpharetta.

Basically in metro Atlanta, the central city competes with the suburbs in general and not just one particular suburb or suburban area.

Not true. Atlanta has Perimeter (Dunwoody and Sandy Springs), Cumberland (Smyrna) and Alpharetta areas that also rival it for companies/employment. For instance, Mercedes Benz moved their HQ to Sandy Springs from NJ. Sandy Springs is apart of the Perimeter area and a totally different city than Atlanta. Sandy Springs is our Tacoma or St.Paul.

Wow. That's a lot of office space in the suburbs. I never knew Perimeter was larger than both downtown and midtown. Pretty impressive for a suburb
