Midtown Glow | UrbanToronto

Just the right light can make the most mundane construction site stand out. This growing excavation for Sixty-Five Broadway in Midtown Toronto was photographed by UrbanToronto Forum contributor GenerationLee as the sun peeked around the top corner of a nearby building from their vantage point. Adding to the atmosphere of direct sunlight on the site, however, is light reflecting off other nearby buildings, an effect we’re seeing more and more as more of our exterior shells are made entirely of glass.
