Another wonderful set, but I would expect nothing less from you.

These are pretty good pics. I'm loving some of the new streetscape improvements that I see downtown. It's nice to see some effort going into making it more attractive.

Thanks for these shots of Atlanta, LSyd! Very nice pictures.

I like the views of Bank of America Plaza from several places of Atlanta. And I like Atlanta´s downtown too. It´s very nice. I´d like to visit.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

2 shining examples of the urban transformation in Atlanta. JAMESTOWN owns both (same company that owns Chelsea Market in NYC, so many buildings along Newbury St, Pac Place in San Francisco, and so many buildings along M Street in Georgetown).

White Provision on the westside just had Free People open last week of March, Lululemon is in buildout to open in June, Billy Reid's (8th?) location is opening there in May and Calypso St. Barth is opening there in May-June. Anthropologie is in the development next door (as is a Jonathan Adler). Facebook opened their offices in another warehouse down the street (and Scoutmob has their HQ down the street). Room & Board's largest store occupies the warehouse portion shown in top pic.

Expect so many great things from the 2.1 million SF old Sears Roebuck warehouse (larger building pictured obviously). It will be reminescent of Chelsea Market (2014 delivery).

Also glad you got some shots of the Luckie Marietta district, Castleberry Hill, Cabbage Town, Grant Park and of course downtown. I have snapped some of those same angles (especially that one looking down the warehouses in Castleberry). You do it better though!

I'm actually glad you left out Midtown! Atlanta will really be a true urban city in no time (well...2 more decades).

- the sound table is badass, love that place
- lol, you caught the google maps street view car
- downtown's looking better than ever (expect things to kick into high gear once the streetcar is up and running) and you did a nice job of showing the more intimate, pedestrian scaled areas around fairlie poplar.

great pics! (with a wide angle lens!)

Fantastic tour (as usual) with lots of great shots (as expected) and a healthy dose of grit (wouldn't be LSyd without it)!

This is fantastic! The best I've seen downtown in a while. I was actually in Atlanta myself about a month ago, but wasn't able to get anywhere of note as both my hotel and conference were in Kennesaw and I had no car.
Two things:
-Palms in 24 and 26. I didn't know Cabbagetown was on the Atlantic, sea levels must be rising faster than I thought!
-There's a streetcar in the works???

My heart yearns for such raw urbanism; Tech just doesn't have anything like it!

BTW, awesome set of photos!!
