Summary 1180 Peachtree is a striking icon on the Atlanta skyline, its huge fins making it distinct from other skyscrapers in the city. But it's not all about good looks - 1180 is creating a new era for the city's towers. Back in the 1980s, when crime and racial tension were rife in the city, architects designed skyscrapers that existed independently of street life, connecting to parking and shopping malls with skybridges that made sidewalks completely redundant. 1180 is opening its doors to the streets and the public, helping to breathe life back into the street culture of this once lifeless city
