Buildings casting light on their city’s skyline around the world

One thing we love is pairing great architecture with vibrant lighting displays - they have a major impact to city skylines. At Aura, you may have noticed the lights at the top of our tower that make a statement on the Toronto skyline. Our light feature consists of a series of LED strips, which illuminate the top portion of our building every evening between 8pm and 10pm.

Drink Up at the Toronto Cider Festival

It’s the perfect way to cap off the summer, and since we’ve been having a hot September it will be extra refreshing.
