History

The Flat Iron Building was
originally constructed in 1860 to house a bank. The adjacent buildings to the west, 112 and 114 Monroe Center, were also constructed circa 1860 to encourage retail in the downtown. Since the buildings were constructed, numerous retail businesses have occupied the main floors, while the upper floors have housed primarily professional practices. Over the last century, the majority of the upper floors have been vacant.
