Toronto's famous Gooderham Building, better known as the Flatiron Building by most, is today's Photo Of The Day. A pretty neat close-up in the photo taken by UrbanToronto forum member brewster.
Completed in 1892, it certainly ranks up there as one of, if not the most, photographed buildings in the city. It has been in the news recently as owner Woodcliffe Corporation announced it is up for sale. Since all the leases in the building have expired it's the first time in more than a century that one firm can occupy the entire building. The five storey building was last sold for $10.9 million in 2005. A price tag between $15-$20 million is the estimate bandied about in the media. Here's your chance to get this prized building. It would make for a great place to locate UrbanToronto's World Headquarters. We have our lottery tickets ready.
