Toronto's Park Hyatt Hotel almost reduced to rubble
The Park Hyatt Hotel's major makeover is well underway.
It took about two months for workers to completely demolish the two-storey podium linking the building's north and south towers at Bloor and Avenue, leaving parts of the north tower gaping open where it was once attached.
The gap between both buildings will eventually be replaced by a larger podium that will face Avenue Road.
The changes comes as part of massive renovations by Oxford Properties on the Art Deco hotel, which began in Dec. 2017, three years after Oxford purchased the property for $90 million USD.
The Hyatt's south tower will soon be converted into an apartment building with 65 rental units.
Meanwhile the north tower will continue to operate as a hotel, but with—among several additions—220 renovated guest rooms and suites, a new ballroom and a restaurant.
