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

    Historic Toronto building
    The Gooderham Building, also known as the Flatiron Building, is an historic office building at 49 Wellington Street East in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located on the eastern edge of the city's Financial District (east of Yonge Street) in the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, wedged between Front Street and Wellington Street in Downtown Toronto, where they join up to form a triangular intersection. Unless you are going to the market I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

It's one of the iconic views in Toronto. I saw this building every day when I was in Trono :) You should visit here both in the morning and at night.

Unique. The shape of the building is so unique and I immediately understood the nickname of the building, flat iron. It is very close to st. Lawrence market, so it is worth visiting if you are heading to the neighborhood.

This was weirdly interesting. I googled the history of why this building is how it is and learned a few things. A noteworthy site.

Very reminiscent of the same named building in New York. Very photogenic when you can avoid the new construction.

One of my favourite buildings. Near the bottom of Yonge Street and on the East side of Berczy Park there is a clever mural facing the park, a bar and apartments in the building. It’s a great building, unusual in shape and far nicer to look at than a lot of the concrete and glass in downtown Toronto.
