Yet people are denying that when Buckhead Atlanta comes, it won't be urban when renderings or constructions pics clearly disprove that.

I just don't like when people think shopping in Beverely Hills is like shopping on Champs-Élysées in Paris or something.

Absolutely gorgeous! Looks very European-esque, like Spain in a way. I can only imagine how much the rent and buyer costs are for those apartments and condos respectively.

And Beverly Hills has houses like this with views


Please let's not make this about which place is nicer because BH speaks for itself.

Clearly no one mentioned anything like that.

Yet you still don't get the point because you're deluded.

You are literally the only person who thinks that.

Clearly, you don't get it. You come in talking about Paris, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, single family houses a 10 minute walk away, LA not walkable, people trying to make BH this and that, the Champs Elysees. Why are you rambling on and on? It's about the shopping districts of Beverly Hills and Buckhead. Not Paris, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Michigan Avenue, Union Square.......

And, no Beverly Hills is not similar in auto orientation to Buckhead. Buckhead doesn't even have sidewalks for 90% of the area. It has almost no pedestrians. It's like a less dense version of Calabasas or something.
I'm surprised nobody from Atlanta saw this post. Clearly this person knows nothing about the Buckhead Atlanta development. I'll provide a link to show you guys more about it. I don't see any "strip mall" here.

To the point.. Yes, Beverly Hills has the upper hand as far as a more urban shopping district is concerned. Someone said before, once Buckhead Atlanta is completed, it would make Buckhead more competitive in the category of urban shopping districts and (perhaps) give BH a run for its money.

Until then, my vote goes to Beverly Hills.

I lived in LA. I'm not delusonal like some of you are. Outside of the little BH triangle, it's just single family homes. That's not a consistent dense urban environment that you would see in NYC, Chicago, or SF. I certainly don't feel like I'm in the big city on that google maps link.
64% of the housing in Beverly Hills is in multi-unit structures. It isn't as dense as the cores of those cities because it doesn't have to be. It's 10 miles from DTLA.

Carry on with your butthurt strawman arguments.
