What a difference between the 9th and 15th floor perspectives at Plaza Midtown.

Their website http://www.aquamidtowm.com has a cool computer generated flyaround and walkthrough which gives a much better idea than the rendering. Click on Virtual Tours.

Hmm, looks like I'm not the only Plaza Midtown resident that's about to have their view blocked (not that I'm complaining, Ms. Norwood...)

Anyway, since there hasn't been an update in awhile, here's one from earlier tonight:

That was a great shot, I didn't know where this project was exactly located but including the Midtown skyline really helped point that out... Thanks for doing that.

This a GREAT shot!!!! If you go up a few more floors, you can see 1180 and all of Buckhead. I've said this before, but that the north tower of Plaza Midtown has incredible views of Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. I have a great view here in the east tower and I'm also high enough to where Aqua will only enhance my view.

Scania: you mention you are high enough where Aqua will enhance your view. What's your take on the proposal by Norwood. I know it's another thread and maybe we should move a discussion to that thread, but I'm assuming you probably paid slightly more to be on your floor than someone else paid for the same unit on lower floors. You care to provide thoughts/comments/neighbor's thoughts on Aqua blocking views....

I believe he's in the East tower. You have a view of south Midtown and Downtown from most units in that tower. I also live in the east tower and some of my Downtown view's will be taken by the Palomar, but I feel the same. It will only enhance my view.

Norwood: If you want an unobstructed view, then they should build a couple of highrises in Vinings, Perimiter Mall area, etc. Let the main street (Peachtree St./Rd.) and its surroundings be as dense as possible, which in my opinion aids in a major city's urban feel.

Now that ^^^ is the kind of view one should expect in the city. Very nice shot.

Well, you are getting your wish - they are building highrises in Vinings, and about 4-6 new highrises (all residential) are on the way to the Perimeter.

Plus ones in Gwinnett county. The views there wont be as great as they are in closer in areas like Vinings and PC but Stone Mountain will be in good range.

Just a quick interjection, though I don't know if it is appropriate in this thread.







This is the view you would get from atop a highrise around the Perimeter area.
