Equitable Building was a 35.91 m (117.8 ft), eight-story building at 30 Edgewood Avenue SE, in Atlanta, Georgia. It was built for Joel Hurt, a prominent Atlanta developer and streetcar magnate. It was designed by Chicago's Burnham and Root, the firm established by Georgia-born architect John Wellborn Root (1850-1891) and his partner Daniel Hudson Burnham. With its completion in 1892, it was the tallest building with the most floors in Atlanta outside of the State Capitol until 1897. The building was demolished in 1971.[2]
