Toronto is not known for its night lighting. There are plenty of other cities you would think of first if you wanted to drink in some dramatic post-sunset illumination, but bit by bit, more buildings are being floodlit, even if you have to travel a ways to see them sometimes. Down in Exhibition Place, the Beanfield Centre, home to conferences and trade shows, is lit up. Originally known as the Automotive Building, the Art Deco Beanfield Centre was built in five months flat in 1929. The 30-storey Hotel X opened just to the west of it in 2018, and was connected to it via a climate-controlled skywalk in 2021. It glows a bit by night too, as can seen through the upper branches of the foreground trees, in this shot by UrbanToronto Forum contributor mbussiere.
