Description: The City Centre consists of the YMCA, Central Library, the Civic Centre, Civic Square, Kariya Park, the Living Arts Centre and Square One, as well as various condominium developments which have sprung up in this core area. The area is bounded by Highway 403 to the north, Burnhamthorpe Road to the south, Hurontario Road to the east and Mavis Road to the west. Development began in the late 1960s when the McLaughlin Group began to purchase surrounding farmland and construction began on Square One. The Toronto Township municipal offices first moved to the area from Cooksville in 1971 to the corner of Burnhamthorpe Road and Hurontario Street. The current Civic Centre opened in 1987 and functions as a multi-purpose facility for both local government and community use. This photo shows two office towers on Hurontario Street, east of Square One.
