The L Tower makes an iconic gateway marker to the St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood. New streetscapes are being enjoyed by local residents and visitors. While more exterior finishing remains they are close to their final state. Inside the L Tower units are being completed weekly, as new residents continue to move-in via Yonge Street. The Tower Crane remains up through September, we will be updating this site when plans for its take down are finalized.

L Tower August 8 – 14 2015

8 The Esplanade – L Tower Saturday, August 8 – 14, 2015.

We take a look back four years just to show the contrast of the L Tower site from a few floors above grade then to its full height today.

Interior work on suite finishes continues; as do regular move-ins of new residents.The Yonge Street Esplanade sidewalks are substantially complete. The Tower Crane remains up through summer. We look forward to work on the Sony Centre west plaza getting underway in the fall. Just a reminder that work on Scott Street is part of the City of Toronto’s work to enhance the wast and north sides of the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.
