The Atlantic is a mixed-use residential skyscraper in the Atlantic Station neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. At 577 ft (176 m) tall, it is the thirteenth-tallest building in Atlanta. Located at the southeastern corner of 17th Street NW and State Street NW, The Atlantic is one of the core structures of the award-winning brownfield development.
