  • Newly installed in Brookfield Place: Blast, a sculpture by local artist An Te Liu. Inspired by an early 20th century journal of the same name, Blast will be up until April 20.
  • Recently a developer purchased a parcel of land including the long-vacant old CIBC building on Yonge Street, just by the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres. A designated heritage property, the building will be restored and incorporated into a new major tower planned for the site. Urban Toronto has a look at some of the restoration currently underway to the interior.
