  1. I really wish they wouldn’t have taken off those 20 stories. Atlanta needs something big to set the city off again and this would have bee perfect. adding the second tallest building in Atlanta would have been a calling for many more skyscrapers(which the city needs since most other American cities are now leaving Atlanta behind when we used to be on top with the skyscrapers). I also think we need a new king for the city, the bank of America Plaza is very tall and for a while was one of the tallest buildings in us( it still is but is quickly falling down the list) but it is not a very beautiful building and has been very lonely for quite sometime. Atlanta needs to stop building these low rise buildings and definitely start filling the easily noticeable gaps between the skyscrapers with even taller skyscrapers. We need something huge and beautiful to start this process off and I think it needs to happen quickly
