The Gooderham “Flatiron” Building is located at 49 Wellington St E (at Church St and Front St E) in the Old Town, St Lawrence neighbourhood of Toronto.

The Coffin Block

In the early 1800s, Front St E followed the very nearby shoreline of Lake Ontario. It was most noticeable in the area bound by Front St E, Scott St and Wellington St E as it created a triangular-shaped block. The point was especially visible at the eastern tip of the wedge where Wellington St E and Front St E converged.

In the 1830s, The Coffin Block was built at the point. Aptly nicknamed, the structure ominously resembled a coffin. At the time, the area surrounding The Coffin Block was Toronto’s downtown core. Not only was it a high foot and horse traffic area, but it was also home to the wharves.

The Coffin Block was torn down in 1891 to make way for the Gooderham Building.

The Gooderham Building & Its Architecture

George Gooderham of Gooderham & Worts Limited wanted to move the company’s corporate head office from the liquor distillery site at Trinity St and Mill St to what was then the financial centre of Toronto, in the St Lawrence area. Mr Gooderham commissioned architect David Roberts Jr to design an office building for the unusually shaped property. As reported in an 1891 publication of The Canadian Contract Record, the estimated cost of the structure would be $60,000.

Combining modern Gothic and Romanesque Revival architectural styles, the five-storey red brick building sits on a foundation of Ohio sandstone. It has a steeply pitched copper-clad roof with dormers on the north and south sides. The prestigious tower at the east end features windows with curved glass and sashes and a steep conical copper roof topped with a decorative finial. Mr Gooderham’s office was at the top of the tower.

When completed in 1892, the Gooderham Building was the city’s most expensive office building. It was home to one of Toronto’s first manually-operated electric elevators, and the building was equipped with ten vaults.

Also Known as The Flatiron Building

Because of the similarities to New York City’s famous skyscraper, the Gooderham Building is sometimes referred to as The Flatiron Building. Toronto’s building predates NYC’s by a decade.

Gooderham heirs sold the Gooderham & Worts Limited business in late 1923; however, the estate did not sell the Gooderham Building until 1957.

According to the 1924 Toronto City Directory, the Gooderham Building was still listed as the company’s head office. By the following year, the directory shows the headquarters were relocated to the distillery site at 2-16 Trinity St.

Also, from the directory, various members of the Gooderham family kept offices at the Gooderham Building, the last one vacating around 1957.

The Mural

The exterior west wall of the building features an incredible trompe-l’oeil mural overlooking Berczy Park. The mural was painted in 1980 by Canadian artist Derek Michael Besant and depicts the windows of the neighbouring Perkins Block at 41-43 Front St E. With a three-dimensional appearance, the faux facade artwork looks like it’s pinned to the building and blowing in the wind. The mural gives the back of the Gooderham Building the impression of more windows when it has only five down the centre.

Over the Years

While the building has had a few owners throughout the years, it has also been preserved and renovated. In 1973, the 20,000 sq ft Gooderham Building was purchased for $600,000. It was sold for $2.2 million in 1999, $10.1 million in 2005 and $15 million in 2011.

Today it’s one of Toronto’s most recognized and photographed structures, second to the CN Tower. After over 125 years, it continues to stand guard at Wellington and Front Sts and is home to offices, commercial space and a pub.

Who was George Gooderham?

George was the son of William Gooderham, co-founder of the world-renowned distillery Gooderham & Worts. Known as a tower of strength in the business community, Mr Gooderham was the president of Gooderham & Worts Limited as well as the president of Bank of Toronto and Manufacturer’s Life Insurance Company.

Along with being a financier, George invested in mining, railways and even the hotel industry, building the King Edward Hotel. When he passed away in 1905, Mr George Gooderham was recorded as the wealthiest person in Ontario.

Did You Know?

  • In the early Town of York, the harbour was once close to Front St. It took several decades for the land south of The Esplanade to be filled and was not completed until the 1950s. On the west side of Church St, just south of Front St E, is the Shoreline Commemorative. It shows passersby that for thousands of years, Lake Ontario’s shoreline once reached the aptly named Front St.
  • There’s an underground tunnel from the Gooderham Building to the former Bank of Toronto that once stood across the street at 60 Wellington St E.
  • Gooderham & Worts Limited was one of Toronto’s largest employers and one of the world’s leading spirits-producing companies.
  • Keeping it in the family, Mr Roberts father, David Roberts Sr, also a skilled architect, worked for Gooderham & Worts. In what we know today as the Distillery District, Mr Roberts Sr designed the Stone Distillery (1860) and much of the milling and distilling machinery. When his father retired, David Roberts Jr became the primary architect for Gooderham & Worts. He had many structures to his credit in the Distillery District, including the Pure Spirits complex and Rack House D.
  • David Roberts Jr designed Mr Gooderham’s mansions (shown below). The first was built circa 1889 and is located at the northeast corner of Bloor St W and St George St. Since approximately 1910, it has been home to The York Club. The second mansion was built circa 1891 and is on the northwest corner of Jarvis St and Cawthra Sq.
  • In 1965, 300 descendants of the Gooderham family got together for a family reunion which included a cocktail party at The York Club.
  • The building received heritage designation from the city in 1973.
  • The Gooderham Building is close to other heritage properties, including the Cathedral Church of St James, St Lawrence Hall and St Lawrence Market.
  • In 2011, Woodcliffe Landmark Properties completed the restoration of this iconic building. The development firm restores heritage properties, including The Shops of Summerhill and the C.P.R. North Toronto Station.

2020 - The heritage plaque reads: 

Gooderham "Flatiron" Building 1892 

"This Toronto landmark was built for George Gooderham, the president of Gooderham and Worts – the largest liquor distillery in Canada and one of Toronto's biggest employers. 

Front Street to your left once followed the historic shoreline of Lake Ontario. Here, where it met Wellington and Church Streets, it created an unusual triangular property. In 1891, Gooderham hired architect David Roberts to design an office building for the distillery and his own personal use there. 

The five-storey Gooderham Building was built using red brick and Credit Valley stone in the Gothic Revival style. Gooderham's office was at the top of the semi-circular corner tower with a commanding view of the neighbourhood.  

The Gooderham Building – known locally as the Flatiron because it resembles the famous skyscraper in New York – was renovated in 1976. Today, it is one of Toronto's best known structure."
