Structure in general
- The Flatiron Building is the oldest skyscraper still standing in Atlanta.
- The building was originally named the English-American building, but because of the popularity of New York's Flatiron Building (which the Atlanta one predates!), the same name was adopted between 1916 and 1920, and again during the 1980s.
- The Flatiron Building was Atlanta's second skyscraper after the 1892 Equitable Building, which was torn down in 1971.
- The Flatiron Building was Atlanta's tallest skyscraper from 1897 to 1901, when it was surpassed by the J. Mack Robinson College of Business Administration.
