I'd like to see some photos like that of the Perimeter area. It has become amazingly urban there.
Still office parks separated by massive parking lots. There is little mixed use development up there.

If people really want me to take photos of Perimeter Center and Buckhead, I will, but I won't feel nearly as comfortable there walking the sidewalks as I do in Midtown and Downtown, not the mention the lack of pedestrian life.

Please don't take photos of Perimeter Center? Its an insult the word urban. The only people using the sidewalks up there are joggers.

That's what I was thinking. At least Buckhead has a bit of street life and on Peachtree, there are some urban spots. I'm sure when Buckhead Atlanta comes, it will become a lot better.

It might not be suburban but it's hardly "amazingly urban." It's not a terribly interesting neighborhood to be honest, although that will change when residential/retail construction picks up again (it's still lagging save for whatever is happening at Hammond and Peachtree Dunwoody... some kind of mixed-use condo development from what I understand).

You couldn't be more wrong.

I feel as comfortable on the sidewalks in Buckhead as I do in Midtown. Both downtown and the Perimeter have a different vibe.

perimeter has become amazingly tall, but not amazingly urban. no mixed-use development, huge parking lots, not walkable at all. it's an employment district, a little bit of a retail district, but not a residential district.

Are for real? I work in the Perimeter Center and ride my bike from Sandy Springs to work. The only people I see using the sidewalks are joggers, and stay-at-home moms pushing strollers.
Around the mall, there are more pedestrians, but there is little use of the sidewalks for commuting to work. Maybe a few people from the apartments to the MARTA station, retail, or offices around.

But most drive their cars to work and that's why traffic is so bad up there. Yesterday at 7pm the roads around Perimeter Mall were still backed up.
