Urban planning writer Jonathan Lerner pens a column this week titled "Is Novare Killing Atlanta's Skyline?" that'll read like gospel for armchair architects hoping for raised aesthetic standards in the ATL. Among many compelling points, Lerner observes that Novare's corporate website uses the exact same image for Skyhouse projects in Atlanta and other Sunbelt cities. He writes: "Isn't there something different about the climates, terrains and cultures of places like Orlando, Austin and Atlanta that ought to be reflected in the architecture their citizens are obliged to live with?"
