“This was the brand new Atlantic Bank Building, on the corner of Forsyth and Hogan Streets.  The old Atlantic Building in the background.  On the left is the store Furchgott’s.  About 1956.” LS

This view of the building’s facade is now obscured by the elevated skyway tracks that travel along Hogan Street.

    I believe that this building has since been renamed the Ed Ball Building which now houses the Building Department and other CoJ offices.

      The Ed Ball Building is a block North and across Hogan Street from this location.

      I spent time on it’s roof setting up remote cameras to photograph the implosion of the Robert Meyer Hotel.

    The taller building right behind the new one is the old Atlantic Bank Building. Merrill Lynch had offices on a couple of floors. I was a broker there in the mid 80s. The entrance was through the old building and that opened into office space in the new.
    There was a tunnel leading from the old building all the way under the street to the parking garage across the street. It had a little sandwich shop in it. I would like to know more about the history of that tunnel and any others downtown.
