    And not even including pictures of regular midtown or downtown. The Gulch project will be Hudson Yards size, and the Ga Tech Square area in growing very fast. Nashville> Atlanta makes 0 sense.

    Multiple years on from this one, but couldn't be more untrue. Charlotte: 2,525,000 with a 13.91% growth since 2009 and Hampton Roads: 1,725,000 with a 2.89% growth rate since 2009. Charlotte could legitimately have 1m more people after the 2020 Census.

    We are talking politics on a state level, similar to how HB2 impacted NC with PayPal. I know this quote below has nothing to do with Charlotte, but the perception of Georgia and NC from a state GOP level can't be ignored. When Amazon officials visited Atlanta for a tour and negotiations last March, many people still had a bad taste in their mouths from the Casey Cagle-Delta Air Lines debacle, in which the former lieutenant governor and then-gubernatorial candidate threatened to kill a tax break for jet fuel after the airline company announced it had severed ties with the National Rifle Association. Gov. Nathan Deal had been marketing Georgia’s history as a great place to do business and assured Amazon execs that the feud was just politicking. But the gun debate certainly raised some eyebrows with Amazon reps about how Georgia politics could impact business down the line, according to the ABC.

    Its a smaller sized with similar density. I think Nashville would be pretty receptive to mass transit, from a spacial perspective, but its gonna be a while before they can implement it. Actually is quite similar to Austin in size and layout.

    I called it the Chamber of Commerce Willy Wonka Golden ticket contest. It was really just a fixed decision the whole time.

    Atlanta is certainly better from a logistical aspect. Biggest Airport in the world, Delta's HQ, UPS HQ, Norfolk Southern's HQ (along with a huge tract of land in the center of DT next to 4 subway lines), and recent announcement of Amazon's logistics hub. I think Amazon felt slighted with the outgoing GA LT Gov's slap on the wrist of Delta's policial stance on gun control. I think at the end of the day Tennessee was more shrewd in its negotiations and incentive packages. Nashville over Austin, Dallas, and Atlanta is suprising in multiple ways.

    Atlanta shouldn't either. Extremely accessible, very efficient, clean and tons of options for Dining, entertainment and soon to be on site hotels.

    That doesn't mean bc you bank there, a lobby bank branch is good for the urban streetscape. Very few people will need to walk into a bank branch in 10 years.

    It WOULD be nice to close off a number of streets meant for automobiles and turning them into pedestrian streets. It would also be nice to not encourage driving through thousands of parking spots in 2 huge decks, as this project provides.
