The Gooderham Flatiron Building
The Gooderham Flatiron Building is an icon of Toronto’s golden age of architecture. Set against the backdrop of modern skyscrapers, its unique Romanesque and Gothic revival design makes it the most photographed building in Toronto. The building served as offices for George Gooderham of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery when it was erected in 1892 and earned heritage status in 1975.
A heritage restoration was completed by Woodcliffe in 2008, showcasing the building’s high-quality brick and beam design overlooking neighbouring Berczy Park. Notably, its central wooden staircase spirals around Toronto’s oldest manually operated Otis elevator. The Gooderham Flatiron Building is a prominent landmark property and amplifies Woodcliffe’s responsibility to maintain the city’s built heritage.
