Sony Centre Plaza Public Art – Dream Ballet Triptych revealed

L Tower  8 The Esplanade – Sony Centre Plaza Update – December update. 

On December 8th the major new public art installation in the Sony Centre Plaza was revealed: Triptych Dream Ballet by Toronto artist Harley Valentine is now fully revealed. Dream Ballet is the centrepiece of the Claude Cormier + Associés designed plaza. As with the adjacent redesigned Bercy Park (also by Claude Cormier), some finishing and landscaping work remains to be complete before the Plaza is “finished” but the artwork is easily viewable by all as the new gateway to the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood and Old Town Toronto.

The Esplanade and Yonge

City contractors are at work on installing footings for new traffic lights and street lights at the corner of Yonge and The Esplanade. They are also taking the concrete median apart that divides Yonge Street. This work is preparation for the new controlled pedestrian crossing at The Esplanade, which was one of the public realm deliverables of the L Tower redevelopment.
