ATLANTApix: One Atlantic Center

I distinctly remember the excitement and marvel created by the construction of Atlanta's tallest building the year I first moved here in 1987, also the year it was completed. It is today known as One Atlantic Center, home to a very prestigious list of tenants. It remains one of the brightest jewels that is the crown of Atlanta's skyline.

One Atlantic Center, formerly known as the IBM Tower, was the tallest building in Atlanta until 1992 and its modern design changed the skyline of Atlanta forever. The 50-story skyscraper started a revolution in Atlanta architecture and she was the leader in making Midtown the heart of Atlanta's business district. 

Seen from many vistas throughout Atlanta, this particular photograph was taken from Sifly Piazza in the Woodruff Arts Center, home of the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

ATLANTApix of the tourATLANTA blog features a "photo-of-the-day" of Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
