Well thats all folks BV just killed the polls!!!
Why do you keep throwing in Miami? My point is that Buckhead is more developed than Uptown Dallas. And highland park is an upscale, secluded strip mall.

I don't understand why Buckhead is being compared to Beverly Hills. Really, y'all? This is absurd.

It will be the core of Buckhead.It will compliment the nearby office towers,hotels and add a whole lot more vibrancy and urbanity to an area already growing and bustling.

Nice. It's like a sister property to River Oaks District in Houston.

You obviously don't know what you are talking about.
That is only one part of Buckhead. Most of it is anything but "semi-rural".

How is this not urban even now?

Again I ask how is the golden triangle more auto oriented? BTW those renderings look mediocre at best and duplicated in cities like Houston, Dallas, Tysons Corner, etc. Really if that's what you guys are hoping will propel buckhead in to Beverly Hills status you guys are sorely mistaken lol

So you show a pic of buildings ooooh urban LOL give me a break Houston has building clusters as well, a whole lot more than Atlanta, does that make the city more urban? Why not show street level pictures like pwright did?
