What Building?

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Quick question for you guys. I was just in Atlanta this past weekend and I was curious to find out the name of a building I saw in downtown. The building is a huge brown windowless structure taking up a whole city block, bound by Williams, Baker, and Spring. What building is this?

Thanks!

I just looked it up so now I have a feel for what it's all about. Apparently it's expanding too. That leads me to believe that the complex is still doing quite well, even though it appears to be an outdated structure. Is that accurate?

There is a reason why the Ameiricas Mart has no windows. Its to prevent the sun from fading the dispalys and allows the retailer to play with artificial light to better create the desired effect. The Merchandise Mart in Chicago has all the windows covered up for that same reason. I do wish it was more pleasing to the eye, but it serves its purpose and eventually it will be surrounded by nicer looking buildings and it want stick out as much.
