ATLANTA NOW: BIG CITY

16788445_260192627737277_544932221158214

ATLANTA, the un-abashed southern center of “big-city-ism”

has reached it’s oh-so-transparent target.

Since the 1960’s, and even many decades before, Atlanta has professed its plan to grow beyond being the capital of the south, as America’s next international city– and global city.

They won't be an international city.  Alot of people say ATL is not as diverse as H-town.

Yet they managed to become the North American HQ for Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.

Mercedes has plants at Tuscaloosa and in South Carolina, BMW's biggest plant in the world is just outside Spartanburg, and VW builds Passats in Chattanooga.

 

Seems like the Germans are quite comfortable with the deep south. :ph34r:

They're rolling with what they know, since Mercedes, BMW, and Porsche are all headquartered in deep Southern Germany. Of course VW had to be different and head north to Wolfsburg.
