"Flat Iron Building - Five Points" Architecture Tip by littlesam1

Architecture, Atlanta: 7 reviews and 7 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: I have seen Flat Iron buildings in many cities and am always fascinated by them. The Flat Iron building in New York City is probably the best known and most photographed example. However the Flat Iron Building in Atlanta actually predates the one in New York by four years and is Atlanta's oldest standing skyscraper. It was built in 1897. The building is 11 stories tall and is short compared to the skyscrapers of today. It is located between Peachtree, Broad, and Poplar Streets. Today it is the English-American Building but is still known by most as the Flat Iron Building. Its address is 84 Peachtree Street and its open to the public during normal business hours.
