The Atlanta Brand of Economic Development

The present day and the past conspire to make the Atlanta brand of economic development unusually well-suited for tomorrow, particularly here in Midtown. The skyrise profile of our city’s heart holds within its condos a unique suitability for succeeding in the rapid changes we face. Atlanta has proven, time and again, to be in front of those changes and today is no exception.

In today’s economy, even the largest corporations place the value of intellectual property and knowledge-based industries at the forefront of their plans. And the nimble energy of small business entrepreneurs and creative enterprises form our Atlanta engine room. What makes Midtown so well equipped for this economic development profile? We have built here a living environment that is as conducive to growth as our working environment.

No Compromise on Quality of Life

Today’s knowledge-based workforce cuts fewer corners on their quality of life as they pursue their careers. Atlanta has provided well for the lifestyles that this people-based economy demands. Art, nature, exercise, and education are among the requirements for fostering growth in the new economy. The factors that compose this quality of life are here in abundance, thanks to the foresight, persistence and cooperation of the business and public leaders of Atlanta.

The Atlanta Beltline, our 22-mile loop of multi-use trails and parks linking 45 in-town neighborhoods, is a prime example of how well prepared we are to take part in 21st century economic growth and sustainability. This linear park system represents the state of the art, and is one of the assets that places Atlanta among the world’s great cities.

Abreast of Every Kind of Connection

If you asked historians to cite the source of the Atlanta economy, connection might be the first of the answers you’d get. The crossroads of vital railroad lines fueled our founding and our initial growth. Atlanta maintained its vital crossroads position when the Interstate Highway System was deployed. And when air travel became the dominant mode for long-distance transport, Atlanta made the series of decisions and commitments that resulted in the world’s busiest airport. Through this persistent wealth of connections, spanning every breakthrough in transportation and communication, Atlanta prospered through rapid economic change.

Broad Shoulders and Broad Base

The capacity to generate intellectual property and knowledge-based resources are inherently adaptable. In fact, they are based fundamentally on change and evolution. As a result, this particular cornerstone of the Atlanta economy may prove to be the best indicator of all that our own style of economic development will continue to prevail.

The resilience that arises from this are why luxury condos such as those of the Atlantic flourish in Midtown. For more information on how to own at Atlantic, visit or contact us at 404.961.7111.
