Project Brief

Now under construction in the heart of downtown Toronto, The L Tower rises 58 floors and is home to 593 units providing stunning views over downtown Toronto and Lake Ontario. It is on the southwest corner of Yonge St. and The Esplanade and shoots up into the sky with bold clean lines and a dramatic streamlined L shape. The tower is a part of the redevelopment of the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, and will serve as a bridge between the skyscrapers of the financial district to the west and the historic cultural character of the St. Lawrence neighborhood to the east, integrating urban space with the arts. A public plaza will be created along the west side of the redevelopment complementing both the new development and the existing theater.
