Overview

Maple Leaf Square was completed in 2010, joining the Air Canada Centre to a major mixed-use urban infill development with a new public square. Connected to Toronto’s transit system and the underground PATH network, the Square serves as the primary gathering space for sports fans from across the city. Key to this project is connectivity with the nearby transit station and a thorough understanding of circulation patterns through the site. The towering cor-ten sculpture by artist John McEwen and a unique linear paving pattern punctuated by maple leafs distinguish the square as an iconic public space day-to-day, while crowds in the thousands gathered around the game screen animate the square during sports events.
