Equitable Building was a 35.91 m (117.8 ft), eight-story building at 30 Edgewood Avenue SE, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Equitable Building was built for Joel Hurt, a prominent Atlanta developer and streetcar magnate. It was designed by Chicago's Burnham and Root, the firm established by Georgia-born architect John Wellborn Root (1850-1891) and his partner Daniel Hudson Burnham. When completed in 1892 it was the tallest building with the most floors in Atlanta outside the State Capitol until 1897.

The building was demolished in 1971.[2]
