HistoryEdit

Construction on The Atlantic began on March 21, 2007 with a groundbreaking ceremony by its developers, The Novare Group.[2] By April 2009, the building had been topped-out, with only interior work to be finished before it opened later in the year.[3]

DesignEdit

The Atlantic is designed in the Art Deco style of the 1930s, with an ornamental roof lined with spikes and turrets built by local ornamental metals fabricator Henry Incorporated.[4] At 46 stories tall, the building contains 401 suites for residential use up to 3,172 sq ft (295 m2) in area.[4] Sl
