The L Tower looks pretty nice right about now; with cladding somewhere around the halfway point and the ceremonial topping off scheduled for later today it’s now possible to get a real idea as to how this project will impact the Toronto skyline.

Notice anything different in the image above? Look closely and you’ll see a quartet of aerial acrobats suspended just above the lower power line that bisects the image.

These acrobats were practising for tonight’s event, and forum members couldn’t get enough of their daring maneuvers up and down the side of the tower. The acrobats are part of Vancouver-based Aeriosa Dance Society, and according to Studio Daniel Libeskind’s website, they will be performing to Bach’s “Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello”, performed live by Liza MeClellan.

The ceremony promises to be quite the show, the best part being that the acrobatic performance takes place outside and high up, publicly viewable by anyone in the area. The event will take place at the tower this evening at 7 PM, above the corner of Yonge and Front Streets. UrbanToronto will be covering the event and acrobatic performance so be sure to check back tomorrow for a full re-cap of tonight’s proceedings.
