Designed by Chicago architects Burnham and Root, this building is considered to be Atlanta's first skyscraper.
The Equitable Building remained Atlanta's tallest high-rise (not including the State Capitol) until 1897, when it was surpassed by the Flatiron Building.
This building once stood where the Trust Company of Georgia Building plaza is today. At the time of demolition, a "modernism" movement was sweeping Atlanta and it was deemed anachronistic, blocking the view of the ultramodern Trust Company building behind it.
