The project weaves several pieces of public art located throughout the park. The project team consisting of the designers, artists, consultants and client worked closely with City Parks to develop a program that was beautiful, functional, maintainable and that expressed the art of our time.

The entire development boasts 4.5-million SF of residential, retail and commercial space in 19 buildings located south of the Bessarion subway near Leslie Street and Sheppard Avenue. More than 6,000 people live in this vibrant and connected neighbourhood and the central park creates a dynamic built form that encourages street activity.
