Welcome to Perimeter

Atlanta’s Perimeter neighborhood is actually located just north of the city between the upscale suburbs, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs. Named after Interstate 285 which forms a perimeter around Atlanta, the neighborhood encompasses part Georgia 400 and 285, making it easy for commuters to get into the city or other parts of the suburbs for work. Many people choose to work in the neighborhood, however, as it is home to some of Atlanta’s top hospitals, like St. Joseph’s, Northside, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, as well as its own busy business district that is considered to be one of the largest in Metro Atlanta.
