Downtown’s a Different Place

by Jan Schroder

Twenty years ago, we moved our staff into downtown’s historic Flatiron Building. Rents were cheap, parking was easy and sidewalks were empty at night. Like many businesses, we later moved offices to Midtown and then the Westside.

Thanks to Central Atlanta Progress, Georgia State University, new museums, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Georgia Aquarium, hotel and retail investors such as Legacy Ventures, and residential developers such as Columbia Residential, downtown is finally evolving into a vibrant mixed-use community.

Thought leaders such as master planners and landscape architects HGOR are designing connected walkable communities that will greatly enhance our city’s central core.
