One thing about Atlanta's skyline...people look toward downtown, but another skyline is popping up with skyscrapers in Buckhead and I predict...one day Midtown and Butthead er Buckhead will meet up.

That was an uneducated remark.

Why does everybody have a problem with the neon green lighting?? There's nothing cheesy about it. It's sleek.

I kind of like it also. I think blue would look better on it though.

It looks like it belongs in Oz. Not a fan at all, but you already knew that.

I just can't imagine why people shy away from something so unique. As far as I know, Houston and Dallas are the only cities in the U.S. with buildings like that. I think it's pretty.

This is a great shot. The second one with the graffitti is ugly.

Eventually the entire Peachtree Corridor from Dowtown to Buckhead will be lined with highrises due to the fact that land values along Peachtree have been skyrocketing. Becaue of the high property values, developers will have to build up higher at more intense densities in the future in order to make a decent return. However, each neighborhood will probably maintain their own distinctive flavor.
