And Now John Portman Has A Street Named After Him

Atlanta's original globally-famous legendary architect/developer John Portman WILL have downtown's Harris Street renamed for him after all. Following a legal skirmish with local preservationists tired of kicking old Important Atlantans to the curb to honor new Important Atlantans, some new information came to light. Tipping point reached, the Atlanta City Council voted yesterday to go ahead and give Mr. Portman his props.
