Exhibition Place has officially opened the new Sky Bridge that connects Beanfield Centre to Hotel X Toronto. With the opening of the glass-enclosed walkway, connectivity between buildings has been improved, providing a safer, all-season link with more direct access. The new sky bridge runs east-west at a slight angle, linking the conference levels of Beanfield Centre and Hotel X Toronto mid-block.
„The sky bridge offers clients and delegates a direct connection between Beanfield Centre's and Hotel X Toronto.“
"The new sky bridge now offers our clients and delegates a direct connection between Beanfield Centre's conference level and the meeting level of Hotel X Toronto, and immediate access to our onsite hotel accommodations," said Laura Purdy, general manager, Exhibition Place.
As for sustainability, the design features a floor-to-ceiling insulated glass panel cladding that encloses the architectural exposed steel structure and a three-colour interlayered film and bird-friendly pattern. The multicolour film decreases the solar heat gain to under 50 percent of the levels of transparent glazing.
