- This is the Hurt Building located in hurt plaza. It is also in the middle of Georgia States main campus. The building now even features a very “historic and elaborate” Starbucks. originally built in 1913 the building needed to fit a certain landsite. Built by Joel Hurt, it features a unique triangle shape. This was an early success for Atlanta’s skyscrapers. Hurt had previously contributed to Atlanta’s growth and expansion in many ways. Seeing this building in person really makes you appreciate the detail and thought put into creation. This is something that does not seem to be focused on as much anymore. This building is a true piece of Atlanta’s history. Below I have attached a map of the building and surrounding areas. Please take a moment to check it out!
