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.
Founded in 1913, Georgia State has come a long way since its beginnings. It was recently awarded with a slot in the top 100 public universities in the nation and has over 55 degree programs to choose from. It is the only urban research university in the South and is located in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The school has approximately 30,000 undergraduate students as well as about 10,000 graduate students taking classes on campus.
When building this landmark in the 1920s, 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 18 stories above the downtown business district. It is now used mainly for private office space.
Renowned local architect Neil Reid designed this Beaux-Arts classic in 1920 for the Hass-Howell Insurance Company. Although understated compared to the gaudy design often featured in this style, the ashlar stone building features an enormous, elaborately carved arched doorway that faces the more detailed U.S. Customs Building across the street. A floor of the Haas-Howell Building houses administrative offices of the Rialto Center for the Performing Arts.
