^And your point is?

I think this is nothing more than you just throwing things at the wall to see if any of it sticks, right?

A suburb is a residential area outside of traditional CBD.

Oakland has its own CBD, San Jose has its own CBD, Berkeley has its own CBD and even Palo Alto has a CBD.

I'm just trying to get a better understanding of places I've never been, but hope to see one day.

Not sure. I would guess they're both slightly less than Buckhead's (not sure how familiar you are with Buckhead). Both area's have skylines that exist somewhere between suburban office parks and downtown or midtown Atlanta. Perimeter (sandy springs) has more than a few buildings that are greater than 500 feet tall.
