And best of all is they're next door to one another. Oh Atlanta, where we transition from one of our best & longest stretches of brick commercial districts just within a few blocks.

I will commend The Edge on their large parking deck mural. It's great to see public art being incorporated into some of the newest developments (Icon Midtown, Modera Midtown, etc.)

I agree with this, I really enjoy the new addition of art throughout the city and think the mural at the Edge is really well done.

i don't think edge is that bad at all - wouldn't be out of place entirely in some ultra modern district in a scandinavian city.

Someone needs to redirect that Palm tree back to the coast. It looks like it's had a rough journey and wandered to far north and now it's confused by it's surroundings.

Same here. I'm waiting for it be completed and until the retail is built out before making a judgement. I do think the aerial photos somehow make it look worse.

^I'm glad it's going up fast, because it (illegally) has the entire sidewalk blocked on both W.Peachtree and 15th. Right next to a MARTA station!

Very disappointing design for the Hampton Inn & Suites project, especially so considering it sits behind the High. Cheap material, cheap design, and unnecessary flourishes to compensate for a lack of creativity. Projects with modest budgets and cost driven design can still look good in their simplicity, but this is not one of those projects.
