Dunwoody, Georgia

Dunwoody, Georgia

Dunwoody is generally considered to be the northern tip of DeKalb County, bounded by the Fulton County line on the north and west, Interstate 285 on the south, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard on the southeast, and Gwinnett County on the northeast. Officially, the CDP extends only to the county line in the north; however, many residents of the narrow panhandle of Sandy Springs consider themselves a part of Dunwoody.

Although Dunwoody claimed its right to self-determination in its own political battle to incorporate, once Sandy Springs became a city in late 2005, it removed “Dunwoody” street sign toppers in the panhandle area. This narrow strip was originally part of DeKalb, but was then ceded to Milton County, which later merged into Fulton.

Perimeter Mall, and approximately 40 percent of the Perimeter Community Improvement District, is a self-taxing district of shopping and office buildings which are located in Dunwoody. The western part of the Perimeter Center edge of the city spans the Fulton county line into Sandy Springs.


Perimeter Center is served by the Dunwoody train station on MARTA’s north line, while the other two stations in the area are both on the Fulton side.

In 1998, a major tornado tore through parts of Dunwoody, running east-northeast from Perimeter Center and into Gwinnett County, Georgia. Thousands of homes were damaged, hundreds were seriously damaged, and several dozen were condemned. In addition, tens of thousands of native forest trees were downed. The vast majority of the tornado’s damage occurred here, leading it to be called the “Dunwoody tornado”, the most vivid in local memory until the 1996-2012 Atlanta tornado.
