About Flatiron Building
The Flatiron Building in Atlanta, Georgia, officially known as the English-American Building, is a flatiron building completed in 1897. The English-American Building is located at 84 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta, on the wedge-shaped block between Peachtree Street NE, Poplar Street NW, and Broad Street NW, also creating a one-block break in Williams Street. It was completed five years before New York's Flatiron Building, and shares a similar prominent flatiron shape as its counterpart. It was designed by Bradford Gilbert, a Chicago school contemporary of Daniel Burnham, the designer of the New York building. The building has 11 stories, and is the city's second and oldest standing skyscraper. The Flatiron building is protected by the city as a historic building in the Fairlie-Poplar district of downtown, and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Immediately across Peachtree is the historic Rhodes-Haverty Building, on the north corner with Williams Street.
