ATLANTApix: Bank of America Plaza

Bank of America Plaza
Bank of America Plaza
The Bank of America Plaza is the tallest building in Atlanta at 1,023 feet, but has only 55 stories of office space. Its top blazes golden at night, a tell-tale sign of its 23-karat gold-leafed open-air pyramid, topped with an obelisk. 

For the longest time, following its completion in 1992, I wasn't sure when they were going to finish the top. I had not seen what is now the signature open-air design of the top, which sits on a pillar of dark red granite. 

The building still today serves as a point of demarcation between Midtown and Downtown Atlanta.
