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.

So what do you build on a triangle plot? A triangle building of course!! Its so good to see the old and the new mixing well in this city. Great for a photo opportunity although you cannot go inside. Take a look at the back of the building, there is a fabulous mural but not sure how long this will... More

After living in New York for a couple of years I have to say Toronto is not much smaller! It is a very green city where modern architecture peacefully coexist with old traditions.

St Lawrence Market was closed but the walk took us by here. Love the way Toronto mixes the old with the new.....sometimes literally!

If you are not big into taking pictures, then this really is not a good place to stop in Toronto. Having said that, do not miss the back of this building for a surprise!

Nothing too much to see unless you are really excited about architecture. 5 stories high. Hard to get a clear picture without traffic.

Great building to photograph. But, there's always at least one in every old city. They're all about the same, coming to a narrow rounded point on their narrow end. Take a picture if you walk by. But don't make a special trip if you've seen a building like this before.

Come here first thing in the morning and get a beautiful glow to the south side of the building. Architectural gem

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,...

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood 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.
