Build a detailed LEGO brick model of the Flatiron Building, the most striking of New York’s earliest skyscrapers.
Rising up from a triangular wedge of land between Broadway, Fifth Avenue and East 22nd Street, the ‘Fuller Building’ – as it was originally named – became one of the city’s tallest buildings at 20 stories on completion in 1902. A penthouse, built three years later, added an extra story. The locals’ nickname for the building was later officially adopted, and the ‘Flatiron Building’ has since been officially recognized as a National Historic Landmark.
This intricate model captures the limestone facade and elegant Beaux-Arts styling of architect Daniel Burnham’s masterpiece in LEGO brick.

Five Stars – By W. Harold on January 6, 2016
Great little building. It’s my 7th Lego architecture set. I love them all!
Another great addition to the architecture lego line – By Shaun Carter on August 5, 2015
Another great addition to the architecture lego line. This one didnt seem as interactive as the other models, but I think this is due to the odd building shape. Once assembled it makes a great display/conversation piece.
the Guggenheim Museum) and you will be amazed at how much more detailed and lifelike it is … – By Max Wright on May 19, 2015
The LEGO Architecture model for the Flatiron Building continues the recent trend in the product line for increasing the level of detail in each individual model (nominally by also increasing the piece count, but so it goes). Stand the Flatiron Building next to earlier New York City landmarks (i.e., the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, the Guggenheim Museum) and you will be amazed at how much more detailed and lifelike it is in comparison.
This is a great set. Its construction is rather complex (which is very refreshing after the rather simplistic construction of the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center), and will take you between 1 – 2 hours to build. As mentioned in the above paragraph, it is an exceptionally well-detailed set. It’s a great addition to your collection, and a must-buy for anyone collecting models of New York City landmarks.
