Architecture sights in Toronto

Originally the headquarters of the Gooderham family's distillery in the 1890s, the redbrick Flatiron is famous for its wacky triangular floorplan, dictated by the angle at which Old York's grid system intersects the waterfront. An exterior trompe l'oeil mural by Derek Besant mimics the restored 19th-century warehouses with their cast-iron facades across Front St. Inside are private offices, so unless you're in town for the Doors Open Toronto festival you'll have to make do with an exterior viewing.
