According to Wikipedia, the Atlanta Civic Center was used to film sequences set at the IBID Lab in Lagos, MIT, and a location in Berlin.

Wikipedia makes mention of the Science and Technology Museum of Atlanta having existed at the building immediately north of the Civic Center. It had a ham station on site, W4WOW (info at http://tenwatts.blogspot.com/2011/11/w4wow-not-jwoww.html), but it appears to have gone dark (although the W4WOW call has been active since then).
Maybe someone local to Atlanta would have more information about whether that tower is still in use.

Since many of the outdoor "action" scenes in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" were filmed in Cleveland, it would be reasonable to assume that Cleveland was one of the location sites for "Civil War" as well.
However, the movie's "official sites" listings shows Atlanta as the only major continental US filming location. Other locations show Puerto Rico, Iceland, Germany, and Brazil.
And of course, the background could have been "stock footage"
