The building’s four facades are covered in a series of sophisticated arches, balconies and windows that give the design its unmistakable majestic character. A large central dome is surrounded by subsidiary domed chambers and a number of minarets covered in intricate finials.

The Flatiron Building in New York City is an iconic landmark that has been at the corner of Broadway and Fifth Avenue for over 100 years. Now, LEGO  has taken the Flatiron and turned it into a buildable, affordable LEGO model . While not quite as refined and detailed as the original, this model has the classic Flatiron shape while lacking some of the windows and other features. Unlike some LEGO Architecture sets, like Fallingwater which retails around $135 and the Imperial Hotel at $79, this set is only $40 and comes with a mere 471 pieces, as well as a nameplate and background information on the building.
