Shangri-La balconies off limits until glass replaced
City ordered glass replaced on balconies of University Avenue tower
The Shangri-La is replacing all the glass on its balconies, which means that its guests and residents won't be able to enjoy them again until at least the end of this month.
The University Avenue tower is home to a hotel and residential condominium units. The city ordered the repairs to the Shangri-La's balconies after a number of incidents involving breaking glass, one as recent as this summer.
Westbank Projects hopes to complete all the work on the Shangri-La's balconies by the end of August. The developer said that it had been addressing the problem before receiving the order from the city.
