49 Wellington Street East – The Flatiron Building

 

Commonly known as the ‘Flatiron Building’ the red brick Gooderham Building is one of Toronto’s most recognized historic buildings. Built in 1892 by George Gooderham at a cost of $18,000 the building originally housed the head offices of Gooderham & Worts Distillery until 1952. The property was sold by the Gooderham estate in 1957.
