The Metro Toronto Convention Centre announced that its South Building is undergoing a $23 million renovation and modification, which will include 10 new meeting rooms, offering an additional 13,000 square feet of event space. Tvsdesigns and IA Interior Architects will guide the renovation, projected to complete in early 2018.

“The South Building modification reflects our commitment to offer a world-class convention centre,” says Barry Smith, president and CEO of MTCC. “The project has been carefully planned based on direct feedback from our customers and is aligned with our goal to help create successful events.”

Updates to the South Building will include redesigned registration areas, a notable digital experience, a new escalator and service elevator, updated lighting, a refurbished café space and modern interior design finishes similar to the recently updated North Building. The building will be equipped with operable walls between several spaces to create an additional flexible 8,000 square feet of meeting room.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
