Excerpt from Wikipedia:

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre (BPAC) is a multi-purpose venue located in the downtown core of Burlington, Ontario. The venue is the only performing arts centre in Ontario and second in Canada to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification. The venue features three stages; the Main Theatre, a world-class performance stage featuring a six-story fly tower; Community Studio Theatre, a smaller scale of the Main Theatre with 2,500 square feet of floor space; the Family Lobby, features an open concept with a glass roof encircled by a balcony overlooking the floor.

In 2015, the Centre commissioned an Economic Impact Study that found that the estimated economic impact of the Centre was $7.8 million in 2014.

In March 2007, the City of Burlington purchased land from the Halton Regional Police Service, where a police station once was at the corner of Locust Street and Elgin Street. In September 2007, the City of Burlington retained Diamond and Schmitt Architects Inc. to design The Centre. The official groundbreaking occurred on March 2009. The Burlington Performing Arts Centre opened its doors on October 1, 2011.

It has a construction cost of $29,000,000, and a seating capacity of 1,000.

Excerpt from burlingtonculturalmap.caL

Spiral Stela offers the opportunity for discovery, education, and an enhanced sense of local identity. The artwork is a community touchstone honouring Burlington and the Performing Arts Centre, its history, natural environment, culture and identity. The sculpture was created with the participation of more than 200 Burlington residents providing personal items of significance to Powning’s ‘cultural mulch.’ Those objects ranging from trumpets to Olympic medals and toy cars to grandma’s glasses, form the bronze band surrounding the obelisk sculpture. Residents shared a glimpse into their personal culture, creating a unique connection between the artist and the Burlington community, telling the community’s story through this work. Spiral Stela was made possible in part by a generous donation from resident Dan Lawrie, the first major donor to Burlington’s Public Art Program.
