Public Services and Procurement Canada and Canada Lands Company announced a $21 million investment to enhance Canada’s national symbol, the CN Tower.
“Canada Lands’ investment of $21 million will provide visitors with a new experience to explore and discover at one of our country’s most beloved attractions, and give Toronto the boost it deserves,” stated Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement.
Canada Lands’—a federal Crown corporation, owns and operates the CN Tower—investment will modernize the CN Tower’s Outdoor Terrace Level, maximizing year-round indoor viewing capacity, extending indoor observation, and providing a new and uninterrupted glass floor. As well, the newly renovated space, 113 storeys above Toronto, will feature state-of-the-art interactive video walls to create opportunities for enhanced engagement and guest experience.
One of the primary goals of the redesigned space, slated to open next summer is improved accessibility. This second phase of the CN Tower’s renovation plan builds upon the stunning $16-million Main Observation Level renovation in 2018. The Main Observation Level now features floor-to-ceiling glass “Window Walls,” which improve accessibility to provide near seamless and unobstructed panoramic views of Toronto.
“Welcoming back visitors and residents to the CN Tower is a true sign of the reopening of our city,” added Toronto Mayor John Tory. “I want to thank Canada Lands for investing in the Tower and for helping us make sure Toronto and its tourism industry comes back stronger than ever.”
