  1. Mandarin better not have a glass wall facing Crescent. There better be something good there.
  2. Is there really going to be that giant sign that says trump? If so not only is it ugly but its stupid since spring st. is one way and the cars wont be moving in the direction to read it.

    I meant huge as in a denser Atlanta with its urban areas filled in as they should be, which would mean a big increase in population, which means what everyone is talking about with a 500,000+ population. I think you get what I mean.

    I'm telling you, it's not possible. Yeah the city is growing, but not at 80,000 people in 2 years. Look I want the city to be huge like everyone else, but think about this logically.

    The last estimates were at around 420,000-430,000 as of 2004. There's no way that Atlanta has added 80,000 people in a year and a half.

    I'm sorry, but there is no way the city itself has over half a million people within its limits.
  7. Buried power lines are always a step in the right direction (aesthetically speaking, of course).
  8. There are always people at Centennial Park though. I went there on a weekday morning at around 10am to do some homework and there were tons of people walking around and enjoying the day.
  9. I live in Midtown (W. Peachtree St) and I dont think Midtown is a dense liveable village at all yet. Development is sporadic still with LOTS and LOTS of vastly underused or completely vacant and open lots. Atlanta is moving in a good direction but it wont be where it needs to for a long, long time.
  10. D'oh! You beat me to it! I was riding my bike down W. Peachtree today on the way home from school and saw the machines tearing out the asphalt. Exciting!
  11. Well there we go! Let's start building!
  12. Well technically there may not be a shortage, but from what I gather tech's management department and business side are growing and I think having a nice midrise dorm in tech square could help out greatly.
  13. Exactly. I think a perfect spot for some new housing would be the entire northeast block of tech square at Spring and 5th st. Tech actually owns the block, at least that's what the midtown alliance told me, so I think it would be great if they made a mid-rise about 10 stories or so for the management kids. Not only would it add a ton to tech square in general, but it would allieve a lot of the overcrowded trolley rides from atlantic drive to tech square. Plus, just think if they put a best buy on the first two floors or something to add more street retail. God that would be awesome.
  14. State has been trying to sell these to Tech for a while now but the foundations these buildings rest upon are awful and deteriorating (from what I hear), so naturally Tech doesn't want anything to do with it.
  15. I'm just saying that the angle makes it look way more dense than it really is. There's a good amount of blocks between a lot of those buildings, but the pictures suggest that it's all conglomerated into one cohesive urban jungle.
