Red face TORONTO | New Toronto Courthouse | 17 FLOORS

A new courthouse is beginning construction right near City Hall. It plans to consolidate several existing courthouses scattered across the city into one building, and a thorough planning process was made into making sure this would be a safe, attractive and inviting space for the public, court officials and staff, and prisoners/ the accused.

Here's the Infrastructure Ontario page which brings much more info on the project;

And a construction update;

The architect of record is Renzo Piano;

And the site, formerly a parking lot, has undergone archaeological work and is now nearly done with excavation;

Yesterday, taken off my cell phone

Cladding has already begun, but here's a quick image I took as I passed by the square:
