Healey Building

The Healey Building, at 57 Forsyth Street, NW, was the last major skyscraper built in Atlanta, Georgia during the pre-First World War construction boom. Designed by the firm of Morgan and Dillon, with assistance from Walter T. Downing, in the Gothic Revival style, the 16-story structure was built between 1913-1914. It was originally planned with two facing towers connected by an atrium, taking up an entire city block. The east tower along Broad Street was never constructed due to World War I and the subsequent death of owner William T. Healey in 1920.

The building remained in the Healey family until 1972. On August 8, 1977, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (Ref #77000429), and since 1987 it has enjoyed local landmark status. In 2001, the upper floors were converted into condominiums, while the lower floors continue to be the home of galleries, shops, and restaurants.
