Facts

  • The top six floors of the building were demolished in 1978.
  • The three remaining floors today serve as the office for the Atlanta Historical Society's Downtown office.
  • This building was described as being one of the narrowest "high-rise" buildings in the United States. This may have factored in the decision to raze the top six floors in the preservation effort.
  • Fire insurance maps indicate this was 120 feet to the main roof excluding the penthouse.
