Flatiron Building, Toronto: 19 reviews and 28 photos
The flatiron building, also known as the Gooderham Building, was commissioned by financier George Gooderham to house the offices of Gooderham & Worts Distillery. It's such a fun building to see, due to it's unusual shape. But also the contrast between old an new makes this building strange to see, behind it in the distance you can see the modern skyskrapers of downtown Toronto.
This 5-storey building took full advantage of its site on a triangular spit of land between Wellington and Front Streets. This unexpected corner in a town laid out in military grid fashion was the result of Wellington Street on the north being part of the grid and Front Street on the south following the original shoreline of Lake Ontario. It is one of the most photographed “sights” in the city.
