TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2015 /CNW/ - After more than a day of extensive examination, it was determined by the various engineering specialists and consultants involved, including the fabricator of the structural steel framing, that the spire at the Trump Hotel and Residences, Toronto is structurally sound. There was never a risk to public safety.
Yesterday, during routine preventive maintenance on the roof top, Trump Hotel management was apprised by the crew that a portion of the spire may need further inspection. Trump Hotel management alerted the Toronto Police who shut down the Bay/Adelaide intersection, as a precaution. Talon International Development's technical specialists were quickly dispatched to the area and found that the concerns were unsubstantiated.
This afternoon, we were in touch with the appropriate city officials and a statement was issued at 4pm (ET) by Mayor John Tory's office saying the streets would be opened, so traffic could resume.
