Further, Garreau did not require that the area not be urbanized 30 years ago. The fifth element of Garreau's definition of an edge city (from page 7) is that the area "Was nothing like a "city" as recently as 30 years ago. Then it was just bedrooms, if not cow pastures." Thus, the area need only have been outside the central business district (as in the case of Mid-town Atlanta, which is virtually adjacent to downtown Atlanta), either as a residential area or as a rural area. The Bole corridor, which you indicate replaced informal dwellings, qualifies under this definition. It was bedrooms before.
