The J. Mack Robinson College of Business Administration Building is a 14- story highrise at the corner of Broad and Marietta streets in the Fairlie-Poplar district of downtown Atlanta, which houses the business school of Georgia State University. When completed in 1901 as the Empire Building, it was the first steel-frame structure and the tallest in the city, until surpassed by the Candler Building in 1906. [6] [7]

Morgan & Dillon and Hentz, Adler & Shutze were architects. In 1972, while named the Citizens & Southern National Bank Building, the structure was added to the National Register of Historical Places. [4]

The ground floor houses a full-service Bank of America branch. NationsBank purchased Citizens & Southern National Bank in 1991, and after later acquiring BankAmerica Corp., it, along with its branches, was renamed Bank of America.
