While it’s easy for development wonks to drool over activity in crane-studded areas such as Midtown, major real estate projects abound across metro Atlanta right now.

Developer Carter, recently known for its ongoing overhaul of Atlanta’s Summerhill neighborhood, is also currently transforming the 1.1 million-square-foot former cotton warehouse built by Coca-Cola cofounder Asa Candler.
