Architect Daniel Burnham from Chicago had designed this city's tallest building. The triangular shape is unique and makes the Flatiron Building a national historic landmark. The wedge shape gives it a magical look. You can stand admiring the building even today for the magnificent view.
Skepticism surrounded the entire design and idea. People believed that this shape and so many stories will make it fall. They believed it would turn out to be Burnham's folly. Residents of the area thought that he was being over ambitious to make the tallest building. He would end up with a pill of dirt.
Though the building once ready did not make it to the list of tallest buildings. But it has been counted in the list of most iconic buildings. It managed to reach a height of 307 ft (94 m) only.

Macmillan is the only tenant in the Flatiron building for many years now. There are a few stores on the ground floor.
