Renovations to Dorchester Square are finished

It took 10 years and cost roughly 15-million dollars. 

Renovations to Dorchester Square are complete.

Among the new features, a Victorian-style fountain, which stands 11-meters tall.

But, part of the fountain is cut off to make room for a sidewalk and bus lanes. 

Architect Claude Cormier, who spearheaded the work, says the top represents a bud on a tree.

"When it opens up, it start(s) looking like the crown of the Queen because we're part of the Commonwealth and the relationship with England in the making of this square was also important", said Cormier.

Work started on the southern section of the square with problems and delays during the work period.
