Then & Now: Watch as our building travels through time

Back in 2010, construction began at the corner of Yonge Street and Gerrard Street on what would become one of Toronto’s and Canada's most iconic buildings... AURA.

We can now watch and marvel how Aura, an 80 storey tower, was built from the ground up. From January 2010 to November 2014, we documented the progress at our construction site each day and night, floor by floor, and after 4 years we can now see Aura grow and soar into the sky in this 3-minute timelapse video.

Take a look and see if you can spot features like the 5th floor terrace or our penthouse suites coming to life!

Get Outside: Our Favourite Public Spaces in the City

Being a downtown dweller is great - everything is right at your fingertips, especially in our neighbourhood. However, sometimes it’s nice to break away from the concrete jungle and hustle and bustle of the city and head to a place with a more outdoorsy feel. It’s important to soak in as much Vitamin D as possible before the weather turns (you know how fast that can happen!), so why not spend your summer weekends hanging out at some of the city’s most popular outdoor, public spaces.

These are some of our favourites:

The Story of... The CN Tower

The CN Tower is an icon in not only Toronto, but in Canada. Standing at 1,815 feet you can see it from just about every neighbourhood in the city, and most of you have probably taken a trip to the top of it at some point in your life. The CN Tower put Toronto on the map as a leader in innovative architecture, but did you know that it was actually commissioned for a very practical reason?
