The Flatiron, the storied office building in the heart of Manhattan that has recently fallen on hard times, will be converted into luxury housing, its owners announced on Thursday.

這幢位於(美國紐約市)曼哈頓中心地區、近來陷入困頓的知名辦公大樓的所有人週四宣布,「熨斗大樓」將改建為豪宅。

The proposed redevelopment by the new owners is aimed at starting a second life for the Flatiron and moving past a dramatic period in which its fate seemed uncertain. In March, a little-known buyer won an auction for the building, only to disappear without paying.

這項由該大樓新所有人提出的重建計劃,目的在於為「熨斗大廈」開啟新生,以及揮別該大樓看似命運未卜的一段戲劇性時期。(去年)3月,一位鮮為人知的買家在該大樓的拍賣會中得標,但卻沒付款便銷聲匿跡。

The building’s future as housing began to take shape this week when the Brodsky Organization, a residential developer, bought a stake in the 22-story, triangular-shaped tower on Fifth Avenue.

在住宅開發商「布羅茨基組織」買下這幢位於第五大道的22層樓的三角形塔樓的股份後,「熨斗大樓」改為住宅的未來在本週逐漸成形。
