Midtown Innovation District
“Districts that combine a university, an educated populace, a dynamic business community and fast broadband connections will be the job factories of the future." Excerpted from Thomas Friedman, NYTimes 1/3/12
Midtown is an urban setting that is both stimulating and convenient. A place where you can have five meetings and never get in a car, or get out from behind your computer and take a walk.
Despite the ability today to transmit information just about anywhere in an instant, location still matters. When you couple a livable, walkable district with colleges and universities, crucial support and resources for startups and entrepreneurs, a thriving business community and robust infrastructure that delivers lightening quick connectivity, you get something powerful: a center of innovation. Midtown Atlanta is just that. A real place, where people live and work and have fun.
