Cousins to sell Atlanta's tallest building

Atlanta's tallest building is for sale.

Cousins Properties, the Atlanta-based developer, said Thursday it will put the 55-story Bank of America Plaza skyscraper on the market and use the proceeds from the sale for new projects.

The Peachtree Street tower, at 1,023 feet, is the tallest building in the United States outside of New York or Chicago.

Cousins built the building for C&S bank in 1992, which was later acquired by Bank of America, the tower's leading tenant.

I only post on this because, well, it's a really tall building, and I happen to spend about 45-50 hours per week in the building.

BUZZ...WRONG! The Stratosphere is the third largest building in the United States, and is neither in Chicago nor NYC.

Nope. Stratosphere is only 949 feet high. 1,023 seems to be more.

AS IF I didn't research the tallest buildings in the US before making my comment. The Stratosphere, from base to top of the spire, is 1,155 feet, the third largest building in the US behind the Sears Tower and the ESB (and, of course, formerly the WTC).
