What I'm seeing in areas like Smyrna/Vinings/Cumberland are a lot of small mixed-use developments popping up creating a sort of fabric around the area versus other areas like Avalon, Ridenour and Buckhead Atlanta which are giant planned centralized mixed-use communities. Which do you like better? More small mixed-use or less big ones? You decide, and why?

Both are good (development is good) but smaller projects seem to create a more organic/less contrived environment.

I definitely prefer Multiple Smaller.

At the same time though - Megas like Atlantic Station are starting to naturalize.

Plain and simple, both.

I like the smaller projects better; they add more texture, layers, and diversity to the built environment.
