    Midtown Atlanta District Developments

    Ladies and gentlemen, a look into the future, as I have developed via the humble SketchUp: In the first image, Midtown as it looks today. In the second, Midtown when all currently under construction buildings are completed. Continued in the post immediately below this one. Next we have Midtown as it will look if all currently proposed buildings come to pass, and the last image shows what I call "informed speculation" on things like the 17th Street Selig development, the MARTA Arts Center redevelopment, and 12th and Midtown's last phase.

    Couldn't grab any good pictures, but based on the new rendering, I can say this thing is easily taller than One Atlantic Center. It's a simple but elegant blue square. Overall it should be a stunning addition, and the developer mentioned groundbreaking is planned for as soon as October!

    If 920 feet is the highest occupied floor (or thereabouts), then that will give this tower the distinction of highest occupied floor in the city. A good chunk of BoA is just ornamental height. I'll be going to this afternoon's DRC meeting, and I'm incredibly excited to see the new concept. It's been over a year since we've had fresh renderings. I'll try to post pics if I can get some decent ones.

    To the list of skyline changers, I would add Post Millenium. It's fairly tall (looks to be 300 feet or more from the renderings) and will be right on top of a hill, plus it's in a location that is currently populated by shorter structures. It'll have some visibility from the east, particularly out on Ponce, but the impact when viewed from the west will be quite substantial in terms of adding visual depth.

    I thought "Terminus III" the moment I saw the rendering as well. "Landmark" was a pretty egregious statement in light of the fact that, given that it isn't very tall, it isn't very original looking. Something along the lines of 1180 Peachtree was more what I personally was hoping for: narrow, understated, but with a bit of flair at the top. I guess I can't be too disappointed though, for all the reasons Lady Celeste outlined above. Between this and the Tech Tower (whatever its proper name is), the whole Tech Square sub-skyline will be a lot more light-blue and glassy in a couple of years hence. And a whole lot more vibrant to boot!

    I think you're exactly right about the Novare tower being pushed back for the sake of views. And yeah that seems like a missed opportunity for a more enclosed, urban corridor along 14th. That seems to be an unfotunate pattern around Midtown, with the exception of Peachtree, that most towers don't align to any common street front along blocks where there actually are contiguous structures. In any case the added density and height will be nice. Now to take bets on how much of this insane bumper-crop of towers actually goes vertical!

    ^ This 782 Peachtree being the roughly ten story apartment development on 5th? I'd assumed this one was practically dead. We've heard barely a peep about it this year. I would really love to see this one come to fruition though. It's no skyline changer, but it would definitely bring more vitality to the less on-fire southern part of Midtown.

    I've wondered this for some time and never seen it brought up, so hopefully someone can enlighten us. What's going on with the base of the office building on the Northeast corner of Peachtree and 3rd across from Solace? There have been screened fences up for, say, six or more months now? From the glimpses I'm able to get, all they've apparently done is install new windows. The entire building seems unoccupied as well. What's the deal here?

    Austin U/C Projects Compilation

    From someone in the ATL to someone in the ATX, I have to say, I really enjoy following all of the developments going on in your city. The scale of what is going on in Austin is nearly unprecedented. It would be literally impossible to keep up all that's going on without something like what you do here. Keep up the good work!

    Looks pretty clear to me that the elevation is showing the silhouette of One Atlantic Center off to the left (and what looks like the pedestal of 1180 Peachtree to the right), and if that's to scale, we can assume the roof of Tower C will probably be almost exactly up to the golden tip of One Atlantic. So that's hopefully closer to 800'. Of course, regardless of exact height, this would be fantastic!

    MD-88s already are more of a rarity it seems. I check flight aware every now and then and we seem to get one E175 every day now but no MD-88. I would think Delta might be accelerating their retirement in light of fuel prices/ the economy/ cosmic rays. I do wish we would get 737s back at some point though...

    Does anyone know when the Fedex and DHL flights leave Tallahassee?

    Peidmont, about how many more people would a 757 carry in two class than a 737NG?

    Finally someone with real political clout vouching for our airport. Southwest would be a godsend, especially because, as you say GG they don't seem to serve markets our size very often. Conversely, the actual airports Southwest flies into are often secondary (i.e. less congested) to the larger international airports of said markets, so we may have that going in our favor.

    I was just thinking about how they no longer have that myself Poonther. It seems that feature went away when the Democrat stopped printing a separate Business and Editorial section and they never bothered to put it in Local Conversation. I don;t think I would care to know prices at this point...
