This early skyscraper, originally named the Fuller Building, was completed in 1902 from plans of D.B. Burnham & Company. Its triangular shape caused it to become generally known as the Flatiron Building. This was one of the early buildings to employ a steel frame on which the exterior walls were hung, a principle widely used in the later erection of lofty structures.
