As calendar years go, 2014 is monumental for Atlanta. Yes, Outkast has reunited, Tyler Perry will probably release eight movies and every professional sports team will surely raise hopes high before crushing them. But we're talking about tangible Atlanta, the built environment. Whether they're wrapping up, just starting or somewhere in between, major projects will be making mega progress all year long. Step back and think about it: Can any other city compete with a roster like this? Not just this year, but in any single year? Two national museums. An adaptive-reuse project so massive it's on the global tourism radar. The first streetcars in 60 years. A billion-dollar colosseum. Apartment projects in key places. A new district. The next phase of the country's most ambitious urban-renewal project. Yeah, it's a pretty big year.
