How State Farm is leading Perimeter Center’s urban evolution
Across metro Atlanta, cities are aiming to build walkable communities as alternatives to planting roots ITP. Nowhere are those efforts playing out more dramatically than Perimeter Center.
The latest step toward walkability is in Dunwoody, where State Farm is making this suburb more urban with its 2.2-million-square-foot Park Center campus on Hammond Drive.
In addition to buildings planned to rise 22 and 19 stories, the second phase of development at State Farm’s campus will include elements to promote connectivity, according to WABE.
That includes a pedestrian bridge over Perimeter Center Parkway that will connect the first State Farm tower, completed in October, to the Dunwoody MARTA Station and a new pedestrian plaza. Cooper Carry is the project architect, and KDC Real Estate Development does the construction.
The expansion of State Farm’s campus will happen over the next five years.
