Toronto, ON

Puente de Luz, “Bridge of Light”, links the western portion of Concord CityPlace to Front Street West, Toronto, for bicyclists and pedestrians. The bridge was constructed by Concord Adex as part of the City of Toronto’s requirements for linking the new neighbourhood to the rest of the city. It was designed by Chilean artist Francisco Gazitua.
