There is a severity to the erupting shards of Daniel Libeskind's addition to the Royal Ontario Museum that communicate a cold strength; characteristics that colour many of his other projects. The L Tower, however, is much softer. Perhaps owing to its use as a condo, the building features little of the sharpness found in the institutional projects that fill Libeskind's portfolio. Developed by Cityzen, Fernbrook Homes and Castlepoint, the 58-storey tower was designed in collaboration with local firm Page + Steele. Construction on the building is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
