    Downtown Atlanta District Developments

    It's no secret that the about-to-merge Miller Brewing and Coors are considering Atlanta as its new headquarters. My understanding, however, is that Chicago and Dallas are probably the front-runners.

    It is/was the Sheraton Midtown.

    It sure looked lonely out there all by itself!

    Metro Atlanta Statistics

    Yes, but as some one who works for the Department of Labor and has witnessed the carnage first-hand, I can tell you it's been rather prolonged bump! This all started around 2001 and we're just starting to get our heads fully out of the water, I think. It's still awfully tough out there for alot of people, though, especially those who lack the training and skills for the new economy.

    Downtown Atlanta District Developments

    I can see them right outside my office window and they look finished. I have noticed some sidewalk and landscaping work ongoing, however. My co-workers and I already refer to it as "GSU State Prison".

    The US Census Bureau estimates around 470,000.

    Metro Atlanta Projects.

    Their administrative offices either have or will be moving to Atlanta. This was announced several months ago.

    Metro Atlanta Projects.

    I agree, it's money well-spent. It's at the Civic Center in SoNo....

    Metro Atlanta Projects.

    I live in SoNo. Yes, I admit it's a bit contrived and cheesy and oh-so "New Yorky". Obviously, it's short for "South of North". I believe the southern boundary is Ralph McGill, the northern boundary is (duh) North Avenue, the eastern is Central Park Place, and the western is the Downtown Connector.

    Atlanta Off-Topic

    Some interesting stats from the Census Bureau this morning at According to this report, Atlanta has only the 15th largest metropolitan area in the country in square miles. So much for those folks who are always grousing, "Well, my city would have 5 million people too if it had 873 counties in its metropolitan area!"
