Not much is going down in Buckhead since the neighborhood purged its nightlife, but plenty is going up. Atlanta hasnt skyscraped this feverishly since the downtown/Midtown boom in the late 80s and early 90s. By the end of the year, the title Buckheads Tallest Building will have changed hands twice in 2007. Come 08, the title will belong to SOVEREIGN. Inside a curving, 635-foot-tall exterior that kind of looks like a giant Ionic Breeze, Sovereign will offer office, retail, restaurants and 93 condos that will cost up to $12 million. Heres hoping the mixed-use monolith encourages more centralized living, working and playing and thus less driving, driving and driving.
