Long Description:
The Hurt Building is located in downtown Atlanta near Five Points on Edgewood Ave. At one time Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph (part of the old AT&T system), later renamed BellSouth, had offices and a computer center located in the Hurt building until they built thier new headquarters building on W. Peachtree St. at the Fox.

Public spaces in the building are open Monday - Friday.

Built between 1913 and 1926, the bulk of the 17-story building was completed in 1913, with a courtyard, entry rotunda and a wing extending final completion to 1926. It was built by Joel Hurt, an Atlanta developer to a design by the New York architectural firm of J.E.R. Carpenter.[2] The Hurt Building is a flatiron building, occupying a triangular site, with the rotunda at the apex. With restrained ornamentation, it occupies a middle ground between Beaux Arts classicism and the emerging modernist aesthetic.
