Maple Leaf on the right. Telus further to the left. Even further still, on the left of the page sits RBC. You can even catch a glimpse of part of the crane for Ritz to the left of RBC.

Maple Leaf Gardens was the former home of the Maple Leafs hockey team. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, the owner, moved the team to the Air Canada Centre. Maple Leaf Square is their new sports themed retail and condo project across the street from the Air Canada Centre.

As you can see, Maple Leaf Gardens and Maple Leaf Square are both related, but only through connection to that hockey team. Maple Leaf Gardens is a good 20 city blocks north of this.

The bottom right is ICE, which just constructed their sales centre. So no work is being done on that site other than sales.

The bottom left is 18 York, another office tower.

It is quite a sight. As soon as we get a nice 10C day, I'm blading down there to poke around. I love this photo below. You really feel like you're in a big exciting city. I have a feeling that this will turn into my new favourite urban spot after Dundas Square. It's going to be very intense down here. I heard the name 'Union Square' bandied about last year. It's a good name for the area considering the new entrance to Union Station.

That's another great photo isaidso! I'm liking the term Union Square as well. This part of the city is sure to be buzzing when everything is completed.

I'm hoping they'll turn both Dundas Square and this area into a giant gathering place for Torontonians to celebrate and watch the Vancouver Olympics. Both have giant video screens. It would be awesome watching sports from the sidewalk with 10,000 of your closest friends! This area won't be finished in time though, will it? Here's another photo looking the other way towards the new entrance to Union Station followed by what I believe to be the actual entrance:
