Much of the river's natural habitat is still preserved, in part by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Its tallest landmark – the Bank of America Plaza – is the 24th-tallest building in the world at 1,023 feet. The city's high-rises are clustered in three districts in the city--Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead.
