The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

    An old remnant in the midst of modern Toronto
    With the city's modern skyscrapers, this 1892 structure stands out for its old looks and modest proportion. It's an architectural icon in Old Toronto and reminds you of how the city must have looked like during those days. It's definitely worth a quick visit. Very instagrammable. 😀

    Good example of a flatiron building
    If you've not seen a flatiron building, then this is a good example. It's an attractive building, of historic significance, and a Toronto landmark. There's a good view from Front Street East, standing on the centre island between the two traffic lanes. There is a plaque sharing information about the building too.

    Good view
    This building is so iconic!! It is so gorgeous the view! You can take good pictures of all the sides! It is free and in front of the building, you can read a little bit about the building. Near it, there is a park and St Lawrence Market

Love the shape of the building, very quirky. Unfortunately there was some construction going on at the front so our photos don’t do it justice! The mural on the back of the building was very cleverly done. Glad we took the time to go there even though the weather was not great.

It's gone through several owners over the years and has often had underwhelming restaurants occupy the ground floor (like the present one which serves mediocre food while blaring out crap music while next to traffic). However, somehow, it feels more like a soulful centre to the city than the CN Tower. It has a charm and iconic aesthetic lacking in most other areas. It just begs for photos and often obliges with Instagrammable imagery.

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!

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 something you'd spend more than a couple minutes at (though, there is a nice looking pub in the basement). But, if you are close to St Lawrence Market, it is worth it to walk up a block and take the photo.

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 Wellington Street from the Flatiron building to the bank. If you want to experience the history, grab a meal or pint at the Flatiron & Firkin pub in the basement.

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 is worth a look.
