TSYS & Synovus are mixed with glass and brick.Just like the suntrust building and civic center.

Aflac has more than one tall building.



Aflac would probably take up more space than the government center,if it located in downtown.

I have always recogized that Columbus would have the 2nd best skyline in GA if all of its high rises were downtown.

HOWEVER! For sheer DENSITY of buildings downtown, I think Savannah handily has all of Georgia's 2nd-tier cities beat. This is due to the rather narrow streets and small urban footprints (narrow city blocks) that all new construction has to fit into.

Here is the new Cay Building that is nearing completion on Ellis Square in City Market. It will house the Savannah district office of the US Attorney General

In any other state, Georgia's 2nd-tier cities would get worlds of respect. But because of the huge influence and "vacuum" of Metro Atlanta, they really suffer from an undeserved inferiority complex.
