Adriana born in Colombia S.A. is the daughter of Colombian Poet, Radio Celebrity and owner of once known Jet24 Airlines out of Miami and Italian mother with artist and architect lineage. After working in top corporations for 20 years she made the decision to pursue her passion; painting. Known for sensual flower (Yellow Wave, White Flower, and Yellow Venus) and religious referenced paintings (Father Why Have You Forsaken Me and God’s Tear To Earth) Adriana desired to open a studio and gallery in Midtown where she and other Artist could work, display work and collaborate, splitting a percentage of art sales from the work.

AT&T Midtown Center I is a 206.4m, 47-story skyscraper in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia. Completed in 1982, it serves as the regional headquarters of BellSouth Telecommunications, which does business as AT&T Southeast, and was acquired as part of AT&T's acquisition of BellSouth. BellSouth Corporate headquarters was located in the Campanile building, also in Midtown.BackgroundThe company, then called Southern Bell, originally planned to build the parking deck for the tower one block further east at the corner of Ponce de Leon Avenue and Peachtree Street. This would have required the razing of the historic Fox Theatre which would have been an especially great loss to the city after the downtown Loew's Grand Theatre was destroyed by fire in 1978. Tremendous opposition, protests, fundraising, and petition drives within the community prevented the Fox's demolition. Even Liberace spoke out on behalf of the "Fabulous Fox". In the end, a complicated deal was struck to build the parking deck on an alternate site north of the main tower on West Peachtree Street.
Georgia Tech's main campus occupies part of Midtown Atlanta, bordered by 10th Street to the north and by North Avenue to the south, placing it well in sight of the Atlanta skyline. In 1996, the campus was the site of the athletes' village and a venue for a number of athletic events for the 1996 Summer Olympics. The construction of the Olympic village, along with subsequent gentrification of the surrounding areas enhanced the campus.The Georgia Tech campus is located in Midtown, an area north of downtown Atlanta. Although a number of skyscrapers—most visibly the headquarters of AT&T, The Coca-Cola Company, and Bank of America—are visible from all points on campus, the campus itself has few buildings over four stories and has a great deal of greenery. This gives it a distinctly suburban atmosphere quite different from other Atlanta campuses such as that of Georgia State University.
Spanning approximately four city blocks, 12th & Midtown is a more than 3-million-square-foot master-planned mixed-use development featuring Class A office towers, luxury hotels, premium residences and flagship retail. With this development, the team (Daniel Corp, Selig Enterprises, MetLife, Northwestern Mutual and Canyon-Johnson Urban Funds) is the largest single contributor to Atlanta’s Midtown Mile, an initiative to transform Peachtree Street into an urban shopping corridor akin to the much heralded Magnificent Mile in Chicago.
