There are several development plans in the works that has the potential to fetch several thousands of new jobs to the general public.

A mixed use development is going up in the Dunwoody area outside the Perimeter. KDC Real Estate Development is behind the 17-acre site that is set to begin construction this summer. This will be home to several corporate offices, restaurants, retail, entertainment and a 200 room hotel. State Farm alone will lease 585 thousand square feet of office space. The first building will be constructed at Hammond Drive and Perimeter Center Parkway in the old Fuddruckers and Chequers parking lots which will be connected to the Dunwoody Marta Station. In addition State Farm says it will add more than 3000 new jobs in the coming months and years due to the expansion of that size.

Concerns have been raised about traffic congestion in the already congested area, and plans are also in the works to alleviate that concern as well.
