Named for the flatiron buildings of New York City and Toronto, the Flatiron Lofts are the second phase of the Worklofts complex. Situated in the heart of trendy Leslieville, these Toronto lofts boast an industrial steel and concrete exterior composed of brick and glass. The Flatiron Lofts also feature horizontal paned windows that let in plenty of natural light. With its partial brick cladding, this structure evokes its warehouse roots and blends seamlessly with the neighbouring buildings.
Situated in trendy Leslieville, this building reflects the transformation of the Carlaw and Dundas corridor from its industrial roots to the intimate community it is today, with lots of shops and restaurants at street level.
