Zen View - Atlantic Center from Peachtree and Ellis Streets

Atlantic Center is what we used to call the IBM building at 14th and West Peachtree. It's beautiful but the key point for Architecture Tourists is viewing while driving north on West Peachtree Street. I think the sighted the building for that view even at the price of height. The lot is at lower evelvation that one on Peachtree Street.

But that's not what this post is about. You are driving north on Peachtree from Little Five Points. You pass the Georgia Pacific Building on your right, finnally cresting the highest point in downtown Atlanta: Peachtree at Ellis Street at the old Davison's department store. Dead ahead is your Zen view of Atlantic Center. The view only lasts a few blocks.

Did you know that Atlantic Center is on the site of the first Mellow Mushroom Pizza joint?
