As you might remember, last June glass panels from the balconies started dropping off the building, forcing the W hotel to close for a few days. Surrounding streets and sidewalks were blocked while almost 1000 glass panels were replaced with wooden ones. That was nine months ago, but perhaps it takes that long to birth balcony systems? Hopefully the W will have no more balcony woes now.
There’s lots of activity over at the W this week. Finally the temporary balcony panels are being replaced on the building. Workers are busy installing new railings and panels on the condo floors above the W hotel.
