10 York St Toronto, ON M5J 2L9
The PATCH Project and local real estate developer Tridel have teamed up on the installation of two new public artworks at the future site of the Ten York condos. Located on Harbour Street at the intersection with York Street, the large scale reproductions of two pieces by Toronto visual artist Bryan Belanger foreshadow the colour and vibrancy of the upcoming residential community that will soon be built at this location.
This collaboration is just part of The PATCH Project’s efforts to bring art to the streets of Toronto, including other works that have recently been installed at Alexandra Park. These initiatives aim to challenge the way that the people of Toronto view public art, and start a dialogue with the City on how construction hoarding as well as other underutilized and forgotten spaces are treated.
The two abstract pieces by Toronto artist Bryan Belanger make an impactful statement with bright colours, bold contrasts, and strong visual movement. New Dawn is a bichromatic work that plays off the relationship between blue and yellow hues to produce a refreshing effect, while Astral Projection invites more colours to the composition, and combines them with finer lines to create drama and tension within the piece. Bryan Belanger is a multidisciplinary artist inspired by multiple mediums and their relationship to one another. His work is playful, passionate, and reflects the curious nature in us all.

Every so often a building captivates the imagination of a nation. A truly iconic condo building that becomes a defining pinnacle of greatness. TEN YORK is just such a building … a 224 metre (735 feet) glass vision in the sky. Rising above it all. Steps from the waterfront. At the intersection of everything the city has to offer.
The location of TEN YORK is enough to inspire wonder and awe all on it own. An architectural marvel, this statuesque beauty soars dramatically up from a triangular-shaped wedge alongside Toronto’s major city artery. This is only part of what makes TEN YORK one of the most prominent locations in downtown Toronto overlooking Lake Ontario. It is also conveniently close to the subway, GO Train, Via and Union Station. TEN YORK residents have the city at their feet and the world at their doorstep.
