To the casual observer from older, denser cities, Atlanta can appear to be full of gaps. Holes. Vibrancy interruptions. In the grand scheme of the world's cities, Atlanta is still a pimple-faced, spread-out adolescent. And though it's made strides to come together in recent years and function as a single interconnected organism, much work remains to be done, as evidenced by today's Visual Journey. Outsiders might find it hard to believe these hollow buildings and vacant lots border modern-day Atlanta's most lively districts. Some properties seem doomed by a dearth of parking; in the case of others, it can't be long until the right idea finds the right market conditions. So this is a random sampling of sorely unoccupied spaces in our fair city. Please, share ideas for filling these properties with life, and let us know what buildings/lots/entire streets we missed.
