The point was some of us feel Atlanta feels like a small town with big buildings, not a sprawl issue. Frankly, I prefer Atlanta to DC.

seems to me the office building is only going to reach 440ft. (not that im picky). its sounds accurate when you compare the tower with 1010. im kind of glad it isn't going to be 500ft.+ though.

well i figured if you subtract the 47ft. of underground parking, you get 440ft. above ground, and to me it looks accurate on the renderings. but then again, im not too good at doing such.

It is laughable when someone deigns himself the judge of what is or isn't a "real" city. Now that is hubris!

Oh come on now, get off your high horse and get over yourself. You've been to other places around the world? Wow - now that is a rarity! How wise you must be after all that traveling!

How about this: if you want to talk about buildings and building construction, continue posting here. Otherwise, you're wasting our time and, frankly, your own.

jaypkatl... you're not the judge of "real" cities. Besides, if you think this is a "sucky ass town"....MOVE. You're free to move as you please! Move to New York...then you wont have to wait on Atlanta to grow up to be like another city... I'll buy your one-way ticket....

So what is keeping you here now? If you're free to live and travel where you please, I don't quite understand why you're "locked in this sucky ass town"...

"hither and yon" wow omg I haven't heard that in years. My Dad seems stuck on "over yonder" everything is over yonder. My Grand Mothers is "far thee well" as in that turkey has been cooked to a far thee well.

God bless my family but Nonnie can tell me stories of Thomaston, GA when the mode of transpertation was horse and buggy. She even has pictures of my Great Grandfather standing next to their first car a Model A Ford. I swear one day I will write a book of all the old sayings from the south. hehehe

I agree.

To quote the late, great Lewis Grizzard, who himself was quoting an old marketing slogan: "Delta is ready when you are!"

Hither would be the cluster near the Cobb Web (285 & 75) or Spaghetti Western if you so incline... Yon would be the massing along the Perimeter or maybe Windward in Alpharetta... Lots of hithers and yons here.

As far as the old sayings, just put up a request on the bulletin board of nursing homes all over the south and ask for them, you'll get 2 or 3 books worth.
