"Skyscraper of the 19th Century"

This 11-story triangular building was designed by Bradford Gilbert and is the finest local example of the 'Chicago style' of urban architecture. Built in 1897, this is the oldest steel-framed high rise in the city and is credited with influencing the design of many of the skyscrapers that sprang up in Atlanta over the following two decades. The building's name was derived from its distinctive narrow shape, the base of which is supported by half columns separated by vast windows.
