Marble Staircase - Hurt Building

Isn't this staircase beautiful ?? It is carved from marble and is located inside the entrance to the Hurt Building. The 18 story building was designed in 1913 by architect Joel Hurt and is considered to be one of Atlanta's first skyscrapers (I am sure in the 1910s that 18 stories was considered quite tall!!). It is one of those "corner buildings" as I call them that sit in a traigular intersection and is my favorite type of building. I'll have to get some exterior shots of the building next time I'm in that section of town. (Click on the picture to see more detail and the beautiful colors spread throughout the marble)
