Sympony Tower is in Midtown (corner of Peachtree & 14th... and it doesn't get any more "Midtown" than that)... perhaps Ryan left it off because it's been under construction for so long that it's almost a given that everyone knows about it?

I am really looking forward to seeing the finished product... they are getting pretty close (well, the outside, anyway), and it looks very dynamic from 75, 85 & 400!

I do wonder why there aren't more "supertalls" going up in Atlanta right now, though... is the office space market down there really doing that badly right now?! I mean, I don't expect "Miami growth", but I think Jacksonville and Orlando have about the same amount of new projects as Atlanta does right now... an you could add the population from both of those metros together and it wouldn't match Atlanta...

I only listed residential construction. 1180 Peachtree is the only commercial construction going on in Midtown right now. There are no "supertalls" under construction, because there is no demand for commercial office space in the Midtown sub market right now. In Buckhead a new 40ish story tower will start to rise sometime later this year near the corner of P'tree and Piedmont, the developer has signed leases with a few companies so this looks like it will happen. To my knowledge, other then 1180 P'tree the tower in Buckhead is the only commercial building confirmed in Atlanta. Everything else is a developers dream until tenants for those building materializes.

Yeah, B'head will get a 31 story commercial office building at the approximate location of Peachtree and Piedmont. Just over 500,000 S.F of office space. It will be headquarters for the building company, Cousins, and a few other companies.

Regarding the oversupply of commercial office space in Atlanta, yes it is a problem, especially downtown. 191 Peachtree will be losing its key tenant next year, King & Spalding, which will follow other big law firms like Alston & Bird to Midtown. 14th Street in Midtown will become what Hurt Plaza in Downtown was 50 years ago. 191 Peachtree is in serious danger of being mostly vacant next year. Not very good for one of DT's trophy buildings.

Southern company HQ DT. Though at 14 stories, it's really more mid rise than high rise. But it's all commerical.

That's true, and there's actually one more confirmed DT. Earnst & Young has signed on for another midrise in the Centennial Hill area. Both of those buildings (Southern Co HQ) are part of the "Allen Plaza" development. The developer has proposed one more building (in addition to the two already under construction) that would rise 30 stories or so, but so far no tenants have signed on so that one is still just a proposal.
