Standing at 18 stories, the Hurt Building was built between 1913 and 1926. The bulk of the building was completed in 1913, with a courtyard, entry rotunda and a wing extending final completion to 1926. It was built by Joel Hurt, an Atlanta developer, designed by the New York architecture firm of J.E.R. Carpenter. The Hurt Building is a flatiron building, occupying a triangular site, with the rotunda at the apex. With restrained ornamentation, it occupies a middle ground between Beaux Arts classicism and the emerging modernist aesthetic. The lobby has been renovated and the 18th floor has been built out to add a conference center and fitness center as amenities. The new ownership has added unique art pieces, including projects completed by SCAD students. The ownership’s goal is to compliment the history of the building while adding 21st century touches.
Architect: J.E.R. Carpenter, 1913
