Aerotropolis is one of my favorite projects. Can't wait to see it happen.

Well Buckhead is part of the city of Atlanta. I thought edge city is defined as suburban and unincorporated, which Perimeter used to be until Sandy Springs officially became an incorporated city.

Agreed. Buckhead is simply a section of the city.

Unincorporated isn't part of the definition. Not sure if Buckhead fits, but it probably does. Cumberland and Perimeter definitely do. Midtown definitely doesn't.

I donít come up with the definitions. I just stated the places people usually consider to be edge cities. The airport is also in the city limits and the surrounding cities are ITP but many publications still say it would become an edge city.

I don't think Buckhead fits regardless b/c Buckhead, midtown and downtown create a pretty continuous lateral cityscape at this point.

I don't think its particularly continuous, but obviously, that is something people can disagree on.
I consider the Buckhead high rise district to center around Peachtree and Piedmont and to begin around W. Paces Ferry or Pharr Road. That's about 4 miles beyond midtown and there are several neighborhoods with sfh in between.

Technically Buckhead isn't an edge city but it obviously has a couple of edge city characteristics.
