ATLANTA — The city of Atlanta, the city that held the Olympics 21 years ago, has been named a top city of the future.

A.T. Kearney, a global business consulting firm, named the City Too Busy to Hate one of its top 25 cities of the future. The list looked at 13 metrics to evaluate long-term investments and success to identify growing cities that are likely to become the world’s most prominent cities over the next several decades

“I am pleased that Atlanta is again recognized in the top 25 cities of the future by A.T. Kearney’s Global Cities Outlook,” Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said in a news release. “Because of the tough decisions we have made over the past seven and a half years, the City of Atlanta is better run, and is more financially secure now than in more than two decades. It’s because of our success that Atlanta is increasingly being recognized as one of the world’s leading cities.”
