Great photos. Midtown Atlanta has some of my favorite individual building designs anywhere. I don't care how dense it is though, it still has light years to go before it can be truly wonderful, vibrant, and successful as a built urban environment.

atlanta underrated as it starts going vertical.
that place is going to be nuts one day

it really is LA east. Not as influential, but it's ready to take off.
the winding streets like that in the middle of so much building looks asian. kuala lumpur or something. Nice set.

The individual towers in Midtown Atlanta I agree are wonderful.

Impressive amount of greenery - it looks like towers coming out of a forest. Are these on the edge of town or something, or is there just that much greenery that it blocks normal residential in these shots?

Very AWESOME pictures! You must own a helicopter or have connections to someone that does... Does anyone know what mountain that is in the background of the 2nd picture above 1180 Peachtree (Symphony Tower)?

Heh, not at all. Especially compared to Canadian cities, it is VERY different in layout. It looks like a forest with tall buildings sticking out from above.

In any event, great pics.

Thanks everybody, In defense of Atlanta, the city is developed, but the trees cover up everything under 2 stories, especially from the angles these photos are taken from. They don't have towers sticking out of the trees, but they do have very low rise, typical single family homes, apartments and stripmalls with towers right next to them. In that sense, Atlanta is sort of odd, but not really any different than Dallas, Houston, Phoenix or even Denver, Minneapolis etc.

Here are some more pics of the areas north of Downtown, the next part will be Downtown. Enjoy...

edit (pics moved to first post)

The mountain is actually Kennesaw Mountain, I'm pretty sure. It's NW of Atlanta. Stone Mountain is east. They are about the same height though.

...you can see Stone Mountain clearly in the last picture of the first post, just above the Four Seasons.

I'm could have sworn the original picture in question disappeared.
