0 Comments Posted by Kevin

The Hurt Building at 50 Hurt Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia is a 17-story building and one of the nation’s earliest skyscrapers.

This flatiron building shares both Beaux Arts classicism and modernist architectural styles. Joel Hurt was an Atlanta developer and built the Hurt Building between 1913 and 1926. Once it was completed it had the claim of being the 17th largest commercial office building in the world. Its most notable feature is the three story domed rotunda. Exteriors of the building where used in the television show Matlock. In 2009 the building became the first commercial office building in Georgia to earn LEED-EBOM Gold Certification.
