Again, here are the top ten areas, and it is very hard to see because they are all small tracts inside the city of Atlanta. In addition to knowing what areas are growing the most, planners also like to know which areas have the greatest population densities, because these areas will be more urban, and our land use guidelines need to reflect that not all areas in the region are equal, and our policies reflect that.
This area in Midtown has around 19,000 residents per square mile, which is the densest area in the region. And our land use policies – as reflected in our Unified Growth Policy Map – outline the types of development that are appropriate here – things like high-rise condos, mixed-use development, infill, etc. And while these are perfect for areas like midtown, we know that these policies are not appropriate for other areas of the region, like that tract out in northern Gwinnett.
Used 2010 data, 2012 data available.
