When building this landmark in 1924, architect Joel Hurt was careful to keep frills to a minimum, preferring the simple base, shaft and capital design so prevalent in the office buildings of the 1890s. The resulting clarity of design still provides a handsome highlight to the Atlanta skyline, rising 17 stories above the downtown business district. As one of the city's earliest skyscrapers, the Hurt Building has enjoyed a storied history over the years. It is now used mainly for private office space.
