News Release:  August 31, 2015

Temporary road closure on Bay Street

Bay Street between Richmond and King Streets, and Adelaide Street West from Yonge Street to just west of Bay Street, have been closed due to reports of potentially unsafe conditions involving an antenna at the Trump Tower at 325 Bay St. The roads will remain closed until the owner of the building provides a report from a professional engineer that concludes there is no risk to the public.  

Toronto Building contacted and issued an order to the property management company in charge of and responsible for the building to provide a professional engineer's report commenting on the safety of the antenna and related building elements. The City is awaiting a response to the issued order. To protect public safety, the roads will remain closed, and at this time it is anticipated that a response to the issued order will not be received until tomorrow.
