Photo

WOW...that's all I can say about that photo!
Talk about perfect timing... with the layers of fog that silhouette the tree coverage and the sun setting just behind the skyline…WOW!
That may be the Atlanta photo of the decade…except for the fact the skyline will be different in just a few years. See if you can recreate that same photo a decade from now and let’s see what’s changed.

It’s actually the sun rising. Midtown on the left, downtown on the right. The sun is right in the perfect center. I think it’s fitting that the sun is rising, it’s like a metaphor for what’s going on in the city.

The view from over here as well as from Emory is amazing.

Love seeing the (short) cluster of buildings and cranes around Tech Square.

Thanks to Photoshop, it's now a sunset

Midtown's interesting variety of architecture.

Nice contrast of old and new.
That's one thing I like about European cities as well.

^ Nice pic! Look like we are the coast line when you pan the picture out.

Agreed, lovely photo! I hope that lot (and existing offices & restaurant) to the north of this photo/west of AMLI Ponce gets developed. Same goes for the block south of here and third of the block below below that by Windsor. Would help make the area more continuous.

Personal anecdote- I toured Windsor and thought it was awful. While the main lobbies are nice, the sound proofing was miserable as I could easily hear the floor above us while walking down the hallway. Their rooftop area was also a joke, there’s an odd room in a corner and then the rooftop was more like a corner balcony with not much space at all. The pool was nice and finishes were fine- just a rather strange experience while I toured the property.

I thought that lot would have been developed already. Surprised it's managed to hold on this long.
