Midtown may have gotten bounced early from the ongoing Best Atlanta Neighborhood 2022 tourney—despite its No. 1 seed status—but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t the city’s epicenter of growth, once again, this year.

To take stock of Midtown’s gangbusters development once more in 2022, we’ve compiled a drone tour in the gallery above that paints the picture of where projects stand, literally, as the year concludes.

The focus here is on the northeastern section of Midtown’s core business district, near the downtown Connector, spanning a few blocks north from 10th Street. Midtown Alliance counts 15 large-scale developments underway across the subdistrict right now, and many of those are depicted in the gallery.

But first, a quick explainer, regarding what the photos show:  

^ In the foreground here, nearest the Connector, is the beginnings of Portman Holdings’ 25-story office component, 1020 Spring, at the Spring Quarter project; to the immediate right is Portman’s taller apartment component, Sora at Spring Quarter.

At far right is the Hub Atlanta student apartment high-rise. And at middle-left, both towers of Toll Brothers’ Momentum Midtown are shown rising between Spring and West Peachtree streets.

As seen in December, the vacated United States Post Office building and parking lot where Atlanta's tallest new building in three decades is planned.

^ This parcel is where New York-based Rockefeller Group is planning a 61-story skyscraper along West Peachtree Street in Midtown. 

^ Lastly, looking north toward Buckhead, cranes are shown (from left) for JPX Works’ architecturally intriguing Spring Street tower; Greystar’s 33-story apartment venture over Peachtree Street; and Hanover company’s new 1230 West Peachtree Street building.  

Now, mosey up to the photo gallery for a bounty of more visuals.
