Referred to as the Flatiron Building, the tremendous red-brick Gooderham Building is a truly marvelous historic landmark of Toronto, located at 49 Wellington Street East ... Found on the eastern edge of the city's Financial District ( about three blocks east of Yonge Street ), it is in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood wedged between Front Street and Wellington Street,...

Saw this on TripAdvisor and saw it was just a block or so from the St Lawrence Market, so walked up to snap a photo. It is a cool building - similar to many flatiron buildings in other cities. It's on a neat little traffic intersection - so, you should walk across the street to snap the photo. It's not... More

It is nice. Just to take a photo and move on. The back of the building has a nice cover. It is not comparable to the flat iron of New York.

This is a truly unique building and a neat thing to see in passing from one place to another. It is similar to the famous New York City Flatiron Building, but on a much smaller scale. Don't expect to be "wowed." But for those of you that enjoy seeing slices of history and unique architecture in a modern city, it... More

Once you have seen it you have seen it. Nice to take a photo and then move on. Quirky building adds some character to the area

Well it's a building on a street but I just don't get it. Would not recommend it as seemed rather dull and uninspiring, as compared to the many other buildings I've visited.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
