Despite the Ex surviving several attempts at total demolition, it's still a bit disappointing that the Ex did lose a lot of its historical integrity over the years due to various heritage losses and half-hearted development, and has ended up becoming a confused space that's urbanistically isolated from the rest of the city (and the lake).

Wondering if the Hotel X (located on the east side of Exhibition Place) are designated as the armed forces residencies for those assigned to the Fort York Armoury? The Stanley Barracks (Officers' Quarters) has been vacate since 1998.

I don't think there are barracks inside the armoury - but I could very well be wrong.

AoD

True but it would be extremely expensive to host people at the hotel. At $500 a night give or take (depending) that would be $207,000 a year including taxes per room.

That's the sort of thing that gets flagged in funding reviews.

Pay rates for Canadian officers, see link. Do enlisted and officers have to pay for room and board?

Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment resubmitted its bid for Toronto as an NHL hub city on the weekend and now proposes that players and personnel would live on the Canadian National Exhibition grounds just outside of the downtown core, TSN's Pierre LeBrun reports.

The bid presents the idea of a "40-acre campus-like bubble" that would grant players access to facilities including BMO Field, Coca-Cola Coliseum (home of the AHL's Toronto Marlies), the Toronto Raptors' practice facility, and Hotel X, which has 400 rooms, according to LeBrun. He added that MLSE would be willing to add other features such as food trucks and an outdoor movie theatre.
Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Toronto are apparently the six remaining contenders to host the NHL's 24-team playoff format.
