Mayor Reed had this to say about Skyview Atlanta,
“When you get to see Atlanta from that vantage point, it just makes you feel good about the city when you see how well it’s laid out and how much is going on. You can see all over on to the Ponce de Leon corner, you can see up north to Buckhead. You can see, of course, west Atlanta. It just gives you a real sense of pride.”
