Yonge-Dundas Square (commonly called Dundas Square) is a public square in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located on the southeast corner of Yonge Street and Dundas Street. It was opened to the public in November 2002, and a "grand opening" concert was held on May 30, 2003. Until the late 1990s, the Yonge-Dundas Square site was occupied by a block of retail stores, and considered by many to be a "seedy" or dangerous corner. In 1998, as part of its Yonge Street Regeneration Project, Toronto City Council approved the expropriation and demolition of the buildings on the site, and the construction of Dundas Square. The square is opposite the Toronto Eaton Centre and just south of the Ryerson University campus, and is part of a historic revitalization effort by the city, residents and the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area, an association of local businesses. In late 2007, the Toronto Life Square entertainment complex opened across the street from the square.
