Area around Toronto's Trump Tower closed off due to cracked window

TORONTO — A downtown intersection will be closed for days as police investigate what appears to be a cracked window in the Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto.

Police say they have blocked off the area around Bay Street and Adelaide Street West as a precaution.

Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook says rainy weather will prevent authorities from properly assessing the damage and risk for days and the area could remain closed until Friday.

A large swath of the city's financial district was closed for nearly two days in August due to an unstable antenna at the top of the building.

Police eventually said the antenna had been inspected and deemed safe.

Glass has fallen from the tower at least twice since it was built in 2012.

The luxury hotel and condo is named after real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who owns the hotel management company.
