Toronto is getting a new public square in the heart of Chinatown

The Chinatown Toronto BIA, in collaboration with the City of Toronto, has just announced the construction of a beautiful-sounding new public square on Huron Street.

Appropriately named "Huron Street Square," the outdoor space just north of Dundas Street West will including unique seating, lighting, a bronze Qilin and decorative pavers, among other features.

It's purpose is to "enrich cultural experiences in the neighbourhood," but it'll also inject some welcome new life into a somewhat drab intersection.

Chinatown is a hub of retail and cultural activity, and the BIA says that public gatherings will be most welcome here.
