The smirk of urban Atlanta spanning from the Howell Mill Road area to Reynoldstown’s Memorial Drive has witnessed billions of dollars in private (and public) investment materialize since the Great Recession, with potentially many billions more in development to come.

It follows another sky-high Visual Journeys installment in the summer of 2018, amidst the city’s sultry haze.
Stay tuned for other drone explorations of Atlanta’s changing cityscape in coming weeks, as time and weather allows.
