For Atlanta.

These are high times for large-scale Midtown development projects. If our calculations are accurate, roughly 400 stories of new residential, office, hotel and retail space have been proposed in the last few months, promising a true vertical jolt to the Midtown skyline.

As for "rankings":

Atlanta
Miami
(these two are equal in my eyes since they both have a lot going on, but the edge to Atlanta due to it's economy)

If Greensboro and Winston are being paired, then so should Raleigh and Durham.

Miami? Cmon guys, I know yall like the women and all, but that alone can't hold Miami up past all the terrible drivers and non-english speaking people everyhwere, stressful. Oh and the job market. Even worse than Atlantas, trust me I'd know.

Can't even get a good engineering job down there.

I hear Raleigh is really underrated btw
Apparently people in Raleigh don't want others knowing its so awesome out there so they're trying to keep Raleigh on the D.L. , Its kinda weird tbh

The Florida cities you list aren't really southern, except in a geographical sense.

Culturally, the only major Florida city which is southern is Jacksonville.

I think more people generally include Durham when Raleigh is being mentioned.

A geographical sense is what I meant by southern cities.
