    This is amazingly similar but not as tall as the old water tower in Atlanta that was built about 1912 to provide water to the sprinkler to a large cotton warehouse block (Atlanta’s first reinforced concrete structure) on Auburn Ave that is now Studioplex Lofts. Very similar
    Architecture. It would be interesting to see if the two towers have a similar design or construction pedigree.
