Atlanta will remain a “robust construction market through 2020,” Wadsworth says. He notes significant activity in the health care, multifamily, data center, corporate office and aviation sectors. “The turn of a decade rings in major projects envisioned for downtown Atlanta, changing the skyline around the Mercedes-Benz stadium,” Wadsworth says. Those projects include the $5-billion Centennial Yards in the Gulch district and the Georgia World Congress Center’s 1,000-room luxury hotel.
