The city is set to pay more for True North Square's public plaza.
Mayor Brian Bowman's executive policy committee approved an additional $1.4 million for the $9 million plaza.
The move means the city will now split the costs with the province, bumping the city's investment to $4.5 million.
Council must give the new deal final approval.
The city already approved $8.8 million for other related amenities like lighting, sidewalks and skywalks.
Earlier this week the province announced $12 million for its share of the plaza and other public portions.
