Boundaries of Buckhead
The official boundaries of the Buckhead community (adopted in 1982 by the Buckhead Business Association, in 1988 by the Buckhead Coalition, in 1990 by the Georgia House of Representatives, and in 1991 by the Atlanta Regional Commission) include that portion of north Atlanta bounded by the city limits and DeKalb County line on the east; the city limits line on the north; the city limits and Cobb County line on the west, and Peachtree Creek from the Chattahoochee River to Interstate 75, Interstate 75 to Interstate 85, and Interstate 85 to DeKalb County on the south. These boundaries were designed with assistance from the Geography Department of Georgia State University using major landmarks and, more importantly, incorporating U.S. Census tracts then numbered 90, 91, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, and 100. Having the resource of this database, of course, is of significant importance in planning efforts and other statistically related programs. The total area contains approximately 28 square miles and is about four miles from Atlanta’s central downtown.
