Overlooking Ga. Highway 400 in central Buckhead, The High Rise at Post Alexander bills itself as a "retreat from the ordinary" with "world-class amenities, dramatic design, and high-touch service" — and we all know millennials are suckers for high-touch service. For this installment of Visual Journeys, we dropped by the 26-story tower, which delivered last year, to see if it lives up to that billing (and its reputation as a millennial Shangri-La). So here are 28 photos. You decide.

This might sound patronizing, but the High Rise at Post Alexander in Buckhead is 26 floors of awesome.
