The thing is though mello is that it actually is multi-nodal, but the core is linked by the subway. That's why it is so linear, and looks so "thin" in many skyline shots.
Downtown, Midtown, Buckhead & Perimeter Center are on the same rail line, and most highrise development has clustered nearby over the last 25 years. Atlanta is sort of a hybrid type of place, to be sure.
