TORONTO — The safety of a Toronto condo building is being questioned after the ceiling collapsed in the gym this week.
Following the incident, a resident living at Reunion Crossing at 1808 St. Clair Ave W. took to social media to reveal details and images of the collapse.
The developer is Diamond Kilmer Developments.
“Last night two people were in the newly opened gym when the roof collapsed,” the post states. “According to management no one was injured but it has left the residents shaken and worried that the building is not safe and wanting the city to do a re-inspection.”
Investigations into the incident are ongoing.
“The acoustic suspended ceiling incident at 1808 St. Clair Ave. W. is currently under investigation,” said a spokesperson from the City of Toronto in an email to the Daily Commercial News. “This incident occurred in an area of the building that should not be accessible to the public, as the City of Toronto has yet to provide authority to occupy that space.”
The Daily Commercial News made repeated attempts to reach out to Diamond Kilmer but the company did not respond.
Reunion Crossing construction got underway in 2020 after facing delays from the pandemic.
