Flatiron Building

Shapes of the City


Off The Beaten Path Must See

Address:
49 Wellington Street East
(Front & Wellington at Church)
Toronto, ON M5E 1C9

Description

At Yonge and Wellington, between Scott and Church, is an historic triangle of bricks and mortar known locally as the Flatiron Building. In an earlier life this was the Gooderham Building and home to the corporate offices of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery empire. A mirror image mural of the Perkins Building located across the street, painted by renowned Canadian artist Derek Besant, adds colour to an already remarkable structure. The pub in the basement is a popular haunt, and features a massive outdoor patio that overlooks one of the richest architectural areas of the city.
