A new mural gracing the construction hoarding around the Lakeside Residences condominium project in Toronto offers a visual of what the East Bayfront community and the city’s skyline will look like once the condo is complete.
The recent collaboration between developer Greenland Group and local public art organization the PATCH Project involved Toronto muralist and designer Pam Lostracco. She created the 375-foot mural, called Reflections, after much research into the history of the neighbourhood.
Reflections pays homage to Toronto’s industrial past by incorporating the historic Redpath Sugar Factory into the piece, and illustrates an exact reflection of the water, including the warm tones that are seen at Toronto’s waterfront during certain times of the day. Lostracco also used horizontal lines to evoke a calming space, seen in the mural’s water and skyline.
