Description
The State of Georgia Building, alternately referenced as 2 Peachtree Street, is a 44-story, 566 feet (173 m) skyscraper located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Built in 1966, the building was the tallest building in the Southeast at the time. It was Atlanta's tallest until 1976, when the Westin Peachtree Plaza surpassed it. 2 Peachtree Street was originally constructed as the headquarters building for First National Bank of Atlanta, also known as First Atlanta. It was designed by a partnership of Atlanta architectural firm FABRAP, and New York firm Emery Roth & Sons. First Atlanta was acquired by the holding company for Wachovia Bank in 1985, but continued to operate under its own charter until 1991. In 1991, under new liberalized banking laws, First Atlanta was merged into the charter of Wachovia Bank of Georgia. Shortly thereafter, Wachovia moved its Georgia offices to 191 Peachtree and 2 Peachtree Street was acquired by the state of Georgia for government offices. #Atlanta #Building #Downtown #GA #Georgia #of #Office #State #Tower
