Massell’s Buckhead Blue Ribbon

Former Atlanta Mayor Sam Massell, addressing the Buckhead Business Association with his annual “State of the Community” predictions, described the 28-square-mile affluent community as “surroundings spell sound success both fiscally and physically.”  Massell is the founding president of the umbrella-style influential nonprofit Buckhead Coalition.

Massell provided an illustration he credited as being the success formula for the area, which was an equilateral triangle routing the skyline at the apex, with the first point identifying a half-dozen Buckhead-named civic and service nonprofit associations, and the other point listing an equal sample number of Buckhead-oriented news periodicals.  This, he says, explained the community’s wellbeing, with individuals active in the many organizations, and the publications reporting on their activities, with the skyline coming into being as the “Address of Choice.” BuckHaven Lifestyle is proud to contribute to this address!
