Sure, Buckhead, the Central Perimeter area, and even Cumberland have seen skyline-altering successes take shape in 2016. But nothing in Atlanta compares to the veritable crane invasion that’s happening in Midtown right now.
In terms of sheer number and size of active (and recently delivered) projects, this cosmopolitan submarket is the clearcut development capital of Atlanta in 2016.
According to recent remarks by Kevin Green, President and CEO of Midtown Alliance, at yet another groundbreaking ceremony, the commercial core of Midtown counts 22 active construction sites at the moment.
That’s a lot of activity for an area that encompasses barely more than one square mile.
Below is a mere sampling of Midtown construction at the moment. Here, 2016 is clearly the year of the crane. And crane sightings should only ramp up through the new year.
