I saw an interesting thread on this over at skycrapercity, and thought I would repost some of the renderings and photos here. Note that many of these proposed developments are actually in the suburbs. I’m not endorsing these developments by posting them here, but thought they would be of interest to readers.
Proposed in Roswell
From this the AJC: “The man who turned an abandoned steel mill in midtown Atlanta into the booming Atlantic Station minicity unveiled his plans Tuesday for bringing that style of intown living to the northside suburbs.
The $2 billion development, which would be built along Ga. 400 in Roswell, calls for 3,000 residential units and as much as 750,000 square feet of office space in five high-rise towers.
The high-rises would be surrounded by European-style plazas, a 2 1/2-acre lake, a community center and lots of green space — even on rooftops, where people can gather high above their community.”
Here was one called Global Station proposed for Gwinett County. Supposedly it is dead, which might be a good thing since the design is questionable.
Telestrian Data Terminal

It's a great way to support the Urbanophile, but more importantly it can save you tons of time and deliver huge value and capabilities to you and your organization.
