About 1100 Peachtree

1100 Peachtree Street is one of the prominent buildings of Midtown Atlanta, Georgia. The 28-story, 618,000 sq ft (57,414 m) building is currently owned by Atlanta-based property management company Carter Associates and the San Antonio-based USAA Real Estate Co. It was previously partly owned and largely occupied by telecommunications company AT&T providing offices for its top executives. Besides BellSouth, the other major occupant is law firm Kilpatrick Stockton, LLP. In November 2006, law firm Schreeder, Wheeler and Flint, LLP became the building's newest tenants. The octagonal building has a ziggurat-like, stair-stepped top with lighting which accentuates the building at night. Completed in 1991, the building is 428 ft (130m) tall. It is one of several buildings built in a period in Atlanta in which architects apparently attempted to one-up each other with their ornate and dramatically-lit "wedding-cake" skyscraper tops. 1100 Peachtree received the EPA "Energy Star" designation in 2000, the first high-rise in Atlanta to be so-named. Building architects were Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates, Inc.
