FYI: AGL Resources is located in that building.
An Australian real estate conglomerate, Hooker-Barnes, built the building in 1988 as the first part of their planned Atlanta midtown development project that was meant to encompass several blocks along the W. Peachtree & Spring St. corridors.
The world wide recession in the late 80's hit Hooker-Barnes very hard both in the U.S. & around the world & they folded.
The long process of cleaning up the mess left by the rubble of that collapsed real estate empire is one reason why that particular area of midtown was so late to enjoy the true renaissance that has occurred there since 2000. For years the several cleared blocks largely resembled a flattened, post-apocalyptic zone.

Those balconies, especially the top one I would find terrifying to walk onto. I don't think I could do it.

It's a Michael Graves design.

The only other one in Atlanta that I can think of is the Carlos museum at Emory. (Which is my opinion is much weaker).
