I went to Centennial Olympic Park Friday afternoon, and the aquarium already makes a pretty dramatic sight from the popular fountains in the middle of the park.
This area is shaping into a fantastic city scape.
Centennial Olympic Park is a very detailed open space buffer between the football and basketball/hockey stadiums and downtown business district. Georgia Tech is a couple blocks North of the Park. The CNN building, located on the southern edge of the Park, awaits the destination bookend brought by the Aquarium and Coca Cola Museum which will line the northern edge of the Park. The Western remnants of the warehouse district much of which was bulldozed to make the park is rapidly gentrifying into office space conversions or redeveloped as mid- & highrise condos/apartments.
As a destination for tourists, the Aquarium promises to be one of Atlanta's most popular.
