The 2 Peachtree Street building was evacuated Tuesday.

A prominent Atlanta office building got an all-clear from authorities after a suspicious package prompted an evacuation Tuesday.

Officers were summoned about 11:30 a.m. to the area of Broad and Marietta streets, Atlanta police spokeswoman Lisa Bender said in a statement.

The building at 2 Peachtree Street was evacuated as a precaution.

“The package was investigated and found not to be a threat,” Bender said.

The building houses the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Department of Human Services and other agencies. It once was heralded as the South’s tallest office tower.
