The Flatiron Building of Curitiba

Built in 1954 on a triangular plot at the corner of Cândido de Leão street and Marechal Floriano Avenue, the 21-story building (the tallest of Curitiba at the time) which occupies the entire lot, has long been the Hotel Eduardo VII, is now called Afamia Hotel. There are rumors that Blue Tree would be interested in taking over this hotel, extremely well located at few meters from Tiradentes Square and XV de Novembro street.

According to the testimony of the heirs of the hotel entrepreneur, the building was inspired by the Flatiron Building built in 1902 in New York.
