CN Tower Hide and Seek

Downtown amongst the assorted bank towers (and a few others) you tend to forget about the CN Tower until it makes a rare appearance between buildings. Here it is squeezed between the big black towers at King and Bay Streets.

What makes this ironic is that that when you are far from the City it is the CN Tower that says 'this is Toronto'.

And what helps to define Toronto is the past, whether buildings or parks or streetnames. When they save a historic facade and incorporate it into new buildings I think that is a great way to grow - in with the new, in with the old. Here is the Toronto Stock Exchange facade, with special streetlights to hightlight the art deco relief on the wall, built into the Toronto-Dominion Centre.
