This sounds exactly like West Augusta.. West Augusta might have more jobs than residents too. I'm not sure so I can't say for sure.

Median sales price.... $243,472

Augusta's MSA GDP is larger than Savannah, Macon, and Columbus CSA GDP. Our economy is going to double by 2015-2017. Augusta metro closing in on 600k. Augusta is becoming 1-B tier lol and not 2nd tier anymore...

No, it is not exactly like West Augusta - at all. I'm beginning to doubt if you've ever even seen Alpharetta.

I do however now realize what you were attempting to do. It's great that you are such a booster for your area, but you are REALLY reaching this time around. There is more office space in little Alpharetta than the entire CSRA. Think about it.

I never said Alpharetta and West Augusta were exactly alike... You said the entire Alpharetta area is pretty much upscale. And the area has become a hotbed of good jobs. I said this sounds exactly like West Augusta.

As a matter of fact, I was in both Roswell and Alpharetta recently. Last saturday I went to Andretti's on Alpharetta Hwy in Roswell. Of course the Atlanta burbs have more office space than the Augusta suburbs... But that doesn't mean they don't share similarities.... The criteria wasn't what area has the most office space..

According to Wikipedia(I know it's not a valid resource most of the time)... The median income for males is 79k and 59k for women in Alpharetta.. West Augusta's median income is exactly around the same figures...

While it's true that Augusta has a larger GDP and population than the other three cities. Those cities still have more in common with Augusta than Atlanta. Augusta, Columbus, Savannah and Macon are much more closer in every category than Augusta and Atlanta. This is exactly why people are saying it's not a fair comparison....

Simply put: Augusta is 2nd tier with Columbus, Savannah, and Macon.
