Description 

Architecture: The only "flat-iron" building in Columbus, this structure uses the mansard-type tile roof reminiscent of Spanish Architecture. A modern building for the 1920s in Columbus, it uses cast iron supports of the Victorian period to support the second floor at the apex of the triangle. The building is typical of the 1920s building boom when all space was taken advantage of and structures were designed to fit available lot area. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
