Architect Daniel Libeskind was in Toronto on Wednesday night to celebrate the topping-off of one of his tallest projects to date. The L-Tower, a joint partnership between Castlepoint Realty Partners, Cityzen and Fernbrook Homes, has changed the eastern skyline over the last two years and has excited many who are eager to see its daring design completed.

The event was well attended by many in the development industry, and the food and beverage provided by local restaurateurs Oliver & Bonacini was exceptional. A signatory drink created for the event, the L-tini — a delicious blue-hued concoction—was served in a space dominated by an icy reproduction of Libeskind's singular design.

Castlepoint president, Alfredo Romano, opened the night by thanking all in attendance. He then welcomed architect Daniel Libeskind to the stage to comment on the experience of building the L-Tower. "I was recently asked which city, which project, I am most enjoying building and I said immediately, L-Tower, Toronto," Libeskind professed to a cheering crowd.

Following the speeches, Aeriosa, a group of aerial acrobat-dancers took to the skies for a performance set to cellist Elizabeth ‘Liza’ McLellan's rendition of the Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello by Johann Sebastian Bach.
