191 Peachtree and One Atlantic Center were both designed by the late (and gay, btw) Phillip Johnson and/or his firm.

He was known as a chameleon for adopting multiple styles during his career.

It is. It's the block bounded by West Peachtree, 13th, 12th and Peachtree Walk.

What's cool is that there's another phase to the east that Selig has not revealed yet that will back up to the SLS project on Crescent.

Awesome looking building. Damn Midtown! The new epicenter for Georgia. The social, political, and economic power that will be coming from the area will be amazing.

Really why the gay distinction. Why does that matter? If your good gay or straight who cares.

I believe the point is that when those buildings were envisioned there was much more discrimination towards gay folks than there is now. So, in addition to making fabulous architecture, he overcame some pretty challenging prejudices.

191 is not residential but anyway who cares about sexuality was my point.
