History[edit] It is the third-tallest in Atlanta, reaching a height of 820 feet (250 m) with 50 stories of office space with a total building area of 1,187,676 sq.ft.[5] It was completed in 1987 and remained the tallest building in Atlanta
until 1992, when it was surpassed by the Bank of America Plaza, which was also built in Midtown. It was also the tallest building in the southeastern U.S. at the time of completion, surpassing the Southeast Financial Center
Southeast Financial Center
in Miami. Design[edit] The building was commissioned by Prentiss Properties as a southeastern headquarters for IBM, a company responsible for many notable skyscrapers of the 1980s. Aside from introducing Atlanta
to the postmodern architectural idiom of the 80s, this tower is notable for essentially creating what is now the Midtown commercial district. Located at the then-remote corner of 14th and West Peachtree Street over a mile from Downtown, this building nevertheless opened nearly fully occupied and thus attracted developers to Midtown in droves. Architecture[edit] The building's exterior is clad in pink Spanish granite and culminates in a copper pyramidal top with a gold peak. The design includes gothic flourishes, most noticeably below the copper top of the building. At night the peak and ridges along the top are illuminated brightly, creating a glowing effect. Other phases[edit] It was joined in 2001 by the much shorter Regions Plaza building, which bears similar postmodern design and was constructed across the street as the second phase of the Atlantic Center development. Atlantic Center Plaza's design and architecture are so similar, it has affectionately become known in Atlanta
as the "Mini Me" building, named after the comical dwarfish clone of Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers movies. Development[edit] One Atlantic Center
One Atlantic Center
was designed by Johnson/Burgee Architects. As associate architect, Heery International, Inc. produced the contract documents. Both Atlantic Center Towers were constructed by HCBeck, now known as The Beck Group. Major Tenants[edit]
