All the Details On How Dunwoody's Project Renaissance Will Come to Be

It's been established for months that a 35-acre site in Dunwoody near the Georgetown Shopping Center will undergo a transformative redevelopment at the hand of a public-private partnership between the City of Dunwoody and John Wieland Homes & Neighborhoods. Anyone interested in the massive and complex process that governs a project of this scale, should make their way forthwith to an excellent piece from Melissa Weinman of the Reporter Newspapers. For those new to the story: the much-maligned "PVC farm" and an adjoining parcel in the Georgetown area of Dunwoody (Chamblee-Dunwoody Road exit off of I-285 in Dekalb County) will be redeveloped into a mixed-use wonderland, with significant land set aside for parks and trails among the residential and commercial development Wieland will execute on the 13-acre parcel it will buy from the City of Dunwoody. The "good things come to those who wait" mantra should be of use to Dunwoody residents, though: while some of the parks will be delivered sooner, the project won't be completed until 2017.
