Atlantans have big plans for their city. It's going to be a place on the cutting edge of men's fashion, a place with a strong public school system, a place that values historic buildings and the local farmers that help make the restaurants here so incredible. At least, that's the city it'll be if the 20 people and organizations in our third annual People to Watch issue have anything to say about it. From the architect spearheading the Clermont Hotel's resurrection to the international lawyer hell-bent on "disrupting the global food system," here's our list of locals to watch in 2014.
