The Six Best Things to Happen to Dunwoody in 2024

By: Treasure Wilson; Sales Manager, Discover Dunwoody

Get ready, folks, because 2024 is fast approaching, and I'm counting down the days with unbridled excitement! Dunwoody is about to go through an incredible transformation, and I'm here to spill the beans on all the dazzling details as I gather my intel.

Picture this: the eternal construction saga of the I-285 and SR 400 interchange is finally reaching its swan song. Word on the street is that by the end of 2023, all the lanes will be in place, leaving the folks in charge with nothing but the task of adding a bit of cosmetic magic.

Now, let's talk about the cool cats over at our Community Improvement District, also known as the "Perimeter Community Improvement District" or PCID. They've decided to ditch the lengthy title and opt for the sleek simplicity of just "Perimeter." It's a snazzy rebrand that captures the essence of our region, covering spots like Chamblee, Brookhaven, Dunwoody, and Sandy Springs. We're all on board with this chic change; we're proudly representing the "Above Atlanta" and "Above Expectations" vibe!

Remember the old Goldkist headquarters? Well, it's getting a hip makeover and is set to make a grand return in 2024 as "Campus 244." This revival plan includes all the good stuff: office spaces, retail therapy, and a fresh Element Hotel. What's even more awesome? It's already 80% booked up, which is kind of a big deal in today's office market. I can't wait to swing by and savor a delightful drink with pals after a fun-filled day in Dunwoody!

Ashford Lane is giving its own Cinderella story a unique twist. They waved goodbye to a road and said hello to a lush greenspace. Plus, they've added some seriously rad spots to hang out, like Superica, Grana, Hawkers, Jeni's Ice Cream, Hob Nob, and the soon-to-arrive Culinary Dropout in December. It's become a fan favorite, complete with cornhole games and an open-carry district. You've got to check it out!

But the pièce de résistance is none other than High Street. This mega-development is all set to outshine even the glitziest of places, think Avalon, right here in the Perimeter! It's a mix of residential and commercial spaces that'll be the talk of the town. They're going to lure in businesses and visitors from all over - Atlanta, Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Peachtree Corners, Doraville, Tucker, you name it. The spotlight here is on entertainment and activities, with a mind-boggling mix of concepts and chef-driven restaurants like Puttshack, The Hampton Social, Agave Bandido, Cuddlefish, and Ben & Jerry's. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! Keep your eyes peeled for even more game-changing ideas.

Lastly, there's a game-changer on the horizon with the grand opening of Assembly Atlanta on October 21. The opening gala was the hottest ticket in town, and it's easy to see why. They've cooked up a storm with 19 spanking-new soundstages, ranging from 30,000 to 50,000 square feet, complete with towering 50-foot ceilings and the snazziest tech money can buy. Add that to the existing Third Rail Studios, and you've got a grand total of 22 soundstages on-site. The cherry on top? The public can have a piece of the action, with access to watch productions on the street or even drop by their favorite movie locations. They can even host and broadcast live shows! If you haven't heard of Assembly Atlanta yet, trust me, you will. It's about to become a household name not just in Atlanta, but everywhere!

Whew, that's a whole lot of exciting news to digest, but don't fret. I'm your go-to source for the latest and greatest in Dunwoody. So, next time we cross paths, feel free to hit me up for the lowdown on all the thrilling developments in our beloved city!
