Q: What is the History of building?

Located in Toronto’s downtown core, the intersection of Yonge and Dundas is constantly abuzz with shoppers, tourists, street entertainers and more. Giant billboards and jumbotron screens keep the sky lit through the wee hours of the morning, a constant reminder that the heartbeat of the city is always thumping.

City and OMNI Television will be adding more vivacity to the heart of the city when both Rogers stations formally make the former Olympic Spirit Toronto facility their new home.

Opened to the public in August 2004, the former Olympic Spirit Toronto facility sits just across the Square and was designed to give non-Olympians an Olympic experience through a variety of interactive demonstrations and exhibits. The launch of the 52,000 square-foot complex was a proud moment for Canadians. For one, the centre highlighted the stories and contributions of Canadian athletes throughout history. Olympic Spirit Toronto was also the first centre of its kind in the world.

On the southeast corner sits Yonge-Dundas Square, an open public space home to a wide range of community events and celebrations. When not hosting special events, the Square becomes an urban meeting place for the public to enjoy. Since its official opening in 2003, the Square has become a unique focal point of the busy downtown area.

A: Visit BT Toronto after 10 am weekdays for a full update on the day’s show.
