ATLANTApix: Tower Place 100

You would think that Tower Place 100 is one of the newer skyscrapers in the Buckhead skyline, judging by its modern, octagon, glass design, but actually its construction was completed in 1974! Amazing, right?

The 29 floor (401 feet) building is primarily office space and is joined by a plethora of more recently erected also glass skyscrapers in Buckhead (one of the wealthiest zip codes in the nation according to Forbes Magazine), most of which are multi-use structures.

Just in case you're driving down Peachtree trying to spot Tower Place 100, although the building has a Peachtree Road address (3340 Peachtree Road, NE), it sits at least a block off of Peachtree on Tower Place Drive, NE. The Tower Place complex, home of several other skyscrapers and buildings, does in fact border Peachtree Road, thus the seemingly confusing address.

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

All those corner offices. I've been inside as few times. The views are spectacular. Solomon Brothers Fine Jewelry is on the 17 floor. If you have the notion, they have a spectacular showroom with spectacular views.
