The connection to royal york dropped down from union promenade into royal york; from what I remember seeing in plans if that tunnel were to flood, then the hotel concourse would have big problems too! I dont think there were stairs “back up” to royal york.That was the subway connection not the hotel connection

That is a separate tunnel from the hotel connection and was located at the leather shop.
I've not been in the Royal York since the tunnel from Union Station closed. Wasn't there also a connection from the Royal York to the RBC? Is that gone too?
Great!Hopefully this shows well enough. The tunnel from Union to the Royal York went from VIA's arrival area just to the west of the ramp doors up to front street. The Royal York is still connected to the PATH system from the East side into Royal Bank Plaza just on the North Side of the Subway station.
They managed to get inflation, market volatility, and Covid-19 all in one excuse. I’m curious as to how doing work constantly behind schedule helps mitigate against inflation; one could argue if they did the work or purchased the materials sooner, they wouldn’t be hit by this inflationAs faithful UTers know, the City told us last spring that the ceiling of the "Front Street Promenade' would be completed this fall, in 4 phases. As fall is ending I wrote to ask how things were going. Clearly, not well. They now say: "As I mentioned in March, the work that encompasses the Front Street Promenade will be completed in (4) phases. Abatement work is part of the overall work associated with the ceiling painting. Great Hall flooring and lighting work will also be completed in phases to mitigate against inflationary pressures (globally) that have compounded market volatility seen in construction costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic." Now the phases are at some indeterminate time in the future!
