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. Completed in 1892, the red-brick edifice was an early example of a prominent flatiron building.
The Gooderham Building is the focal point of one of Toronto's most iconic vistas: looking west down Front Street towards the building's prominent rounded corner, framed on the sides by the heritage commercial blocks along Front Street, and with the skyscrapers of the Financial District towering in the background. The CN Tower is also visible from certain angles behind Brookfield Place. This vista frequently appears in imagery of the city.

I was at the Flatiron/ Firkin a week ago having drinks with a friend. We sat in the large patio outdoors and enjoyed the sunshine. They do have the main pub in the basement but I insisted to be outside (Hey the weather is good in Toronto, you want to be outside 😃!) They had a musician playing music on the patio and the servers give good recommendations (first time in the restaurant there, my friend is a regular). I really did enjoy my happy hours here!!! 😃 (it was 2 hours!!)

I wish i was able to experience the bar but got no time when i visited this place. Not as high with new york’s but i find this building cute, and worth a photobomb/background for your great selfie pic while in TO. I wanna go back!

A building worth seeing. It is called a Flatiron building because of it's shape. The mural at the back makes it look as if the bricks have been peeled back. This is where the first elevator in Toronto was built. The Toronto skyline now has other icon structures but this is a must see.

An old building in the middle of the modern city of Toronto , you can read alot about it on Wikipedia and Google as well, it took me 3 days to satisfy my photography desire to shoot this building from deferent angles and during deferent times of the day . There are many shops and coffee shops around the building , so you will like the area and old atmosphere
