NOTE for L Tower Residents

We get enquires from L Tower residents about the progress of internal work in the building. While we are happy to direct these enquiries to the appropriate people, please note that the purpose of this site is to provide construction information to external neighbourhood stakeholders, particularly in the immediate St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. 

  •  We post construction information updates weekly on Fridays or more frequently, as information or activity warrants, to keep neighbourhood stakeholders informed, with a particular focus on the immediate St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood
