Once again, as a commercial real estate guy that works with CBRE, I find your faith amusing.
If you're a commercial real estate guy, then you should already know what cities are considered Gateway Cities in our industry. I only referenced that link because it actually gave a list for people not in this arena. You already know which cities are Tier 1 and this is understood globally in our industry.

What U.S. city would you, or your company, consider Tier 1 globally that isn't already listed?

And yet more Ebck120 style 'Fake News.' More than 2 million people have moved here since the 90's, including over 90,000 in the last year alone. Atlanta knows how to market itself quite well, and always has. This is practically an industry here.

The only thing here not being an easy sell is yet another of your passive/aggressive back-handed insults of the place.
Come on. Give me some credit. Of course I've been to SD. Numerous times actually. How is it fake news when I just posed a question regarding marketing about popularity beyond people moving there for COL. You're insecurity in blinding you again. Don't you need to get back to the Philly thread and continue to bash that city?

LOL...the poll results would largely be the same if you replaced Atlanta with any other inland city except Chicago. You're reading entirely too much into this one poll.

I don't really care. I'm just stating it's not the be all end all and actually losing (not #1) and being facetious with JMatl. He gets all riled up

Liars lose all credit and credibility. And to claim that San Diego doesn't 'spread out as much' is ridiculous, and anyone that has been to both knows it.

No. Your insecurity about Atlanta has caused you to reach beyond reality in yet another attempt to discredit the place. It's becoming almost pathological at this point.

Wow, talk about insecure and thin-skinned! I never bashed Philly, is there a reading comprehension issue at play here? I didn't state anything that isn't true, and several locals agreed with me. More Fake News from you.

Has Ellerbe Becket brought Spicey into their D.C. PR department or something? You're not very good at this, maybe he can provide some pointers for you.

Silly. Take a break, I'm not the only that said negative things about Atl on here... Let's stop with this one and continue onto the next thread Atlanta is included.

You can't honestly believe that people are only moving to Atlanta for the sole purpose of having low cost of living lol

Of course I don't but I think it plays a big part into moving there. Atlanta IMO doesn't have that strong of a draw/"cool" factor reminiscent of cities like SD which is why it's losing this poll even though it's double it's size.

Actually Atlanta has a very "cool" factor among certain groups such as African Americans, LGBT, etc. You're really not making yourself look very credible here by stating such obviously false comments. It may not be "mainstream cool" like Austin, Seattle and Denver but that's not stopping the exploding population growth now is it?

Didn't I just say it doesn't have as much of a cool factor as SD. I didn't say it didn't and that COL plays a bigger part in moving there, why don't you read more carefully before trying. Everything on paper; population, GDP, growth etc..would dictate Atlanta should be ahead but it's not hence SD having a stronger lure..
