And How Atlanta Construction Companies Can Stay on Top of New Project Growth
As a city, Atlanta is known for many fantastic things including its southern hospitality, sports teams like the Braves, Falcons and Hawks and its eclectic music stylings from Ludacris to TLC. But in recent years, the city has become known for also being “the most liveable city” with more green space per resident than any other major U.S. city.
Giving the countless benefits A-Town offers to its inhabitants, no wonder the city is experiencing rapid population growth. In the last decade, significant parts of the metro area have basically been built and revitalized in a trend of “urban renewal.” This includes Downtown Atlanta, where to accommodate for the population boom, there’s a heavy concentration of relatively new hotels, office towers, dining options, shops and, of course, parks.
