In his early years with Webb & Knapp, Pei remodeled various properties that Zeckendorf owned. This one, the Hillyer Building in downtown Atlanta, stood not far from Pei’s Gulf Oil Building and shared a similar modernist aesthetic. According to Pei, he prepared sketches for the facade “just to help out.” The drawings were turned over to local architects for development and construction.
