State Archives Building Successfully Imploded

March 7, 2017

On October 11, 1965 the Georgia Archives building dedicated its first home built specifically to house archival collections. The 14-story marble building-known to many as the “white ice cube”-was hailed as the most modern archival facility in the country. In 1998, it was determined that the building needed extensive repairs which made new construction an attractive alternative. A new Georgia Archives building was constructed and opened in Clayton County on May 6, 2003. Since that time the vacant building was a popular facility for film productions.

GBA has proposed a new judicial complex for the site that will house the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals and other court agencies.
