This building gives New York's version a run for its money! Located at a beautiful intersection, it's the subject of many photographers. When approached from either ends, this building stands tall as an important Toronto landmark. It has been well maintained and is a sight for sore eyes any time of the year! Definitely makes me a proud Torontonian.

If you happen to be in downtown Toronto, near the St Lawrence Market, the Gooderham ( Flatiron ) Building is a must see. It's a beautifiul piece of architecture and quite a contrast to some of the contemporary buildings around it. The Gooderham Buildng, and the area around Queen St East near it, are worth a look.

After exploring The Distillery District and St Lawrence Market, we were just about ready to head home. However I could not resist a quick photo stop at Toronto’s famous flatiron building -- the Gooderham Building, conveniently located at the next intersection (Front St E, Church St and Wellington St E). Our first look at this eye-catching red-brick structure was during... More

What an interesting building the see from all sides. The narrow end at the junction of 2 roads & the wide end with the complete wall covered with an unusual mural. Very clever. The adjacent park area undergoing renovation meant there was no pubic access.

The Gooderham Flatiron Building is a landmark in Toronto. It was built in 1892. The first Otis elevator installed in North America is inside. No tours are offered because it is an office building. I am blessed to work in this building. The energy is unbelievable. Al Capone walked these halls. There used to be a tunnel that ran under... More

This uniquely designed building fits perfectly in the triangle plot & poses for photos day and night! Located at 49 Wellington Street East, a short walk from Front & York Streets, it is a great photo stop! Please see 4) photos I posted here.

The flatiron building is an interesting photo opportunity and if nothing else worth a quick look while walking from union station to the Saint Lawrence market. Great use of space and some interesting shops on the nearby streets.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
