Expanding City Just North of Atlanta Will Work With Experienced Architecture and Engineering Firm to Develop Vision for Perimeter Center District to Meet the Growing Needs of the Community
DUNWOODY, Ga. – November 30, 2021 – The City of Dunwoody today announced the approval of a contract with architecture and engineering firm Pond & Company for its Edge City 2.0 Project. As the City balances historic growth patterns with the demand for new development, it will work with Pond & Company to create a blueprint to manage and guide future growth, focusing on the Perimeter Center District.
“The Perimeter Center District has continued to develop with businesses moving to the area and attracting more residents who wish to be close to their workplace,” said Dunwoody Economic Development Director Michael Starling. “We look forward to working with Pond & Company to develop a unique, shared vision for the area and continue Dunwoody’s evolution, as we transform into a thriving community that meets the needs of all residents and businesses.”
Pond & Company will strategically work with the City and community to deliver a flexible planning vision that will address the needs of residents including increased greenspace, public art, the future of retail and a wide range of housing options. The study and vision development will be dependent on several factors including the alignment of diverse goals for the area’s future, a rethinking of the mobility network that responds to all users, introducing quality open space and public art to create meaningful spaces and how to optimize economic opportunities. At the end of researching and developing multiple visions for the future of the Perimeter Market, Pond & Company will provide the City and its partners with an implementable roadmap for the next 20 years.
