Ah, what could have been . Aesthetically, I think the Mandarin was the best thing that didn't get built. I still think that 14th St Tower rendering is butt ugly.

Oh, I think a lot of good things will continue to happen. Hopefully it will involve the increasing infill and density that makes a city really happen. Skyscrapers are fun and we may get a few, but let's be honest -- what we need far more than that is block after block of quality low and midrise buildings with a strong street presence.

We've grown up, now let's fill in.

Agreed. The area between the Connector and Peachtree needs to step it up.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread, but it looks like the Tokyo Hotel downtown is another casualty of the recession.
