Overview

This stark structure was constructed in 1930 and is noted for being the second high-rise built in Atlanta specifically for the medical profession; surprisingly, it has served exclusively in that capacity ever since. Designed in the Art Deco style by famed architects Robert S. Pringle and Francis P. Smith, the building is housed in the Emory University Hospital Midtown. The simple cream brick exterior belies a lavish attention to detail inside, most notably in the stylish lobby on the first floor.
