Hard Hat Tour
On a beautiful, mild afternoon in December, a group gathered for a behind-the-scene peek of the RBC Convention Centre expansion. Aside from the 3rd floor City View Room, the majority of the building has been enclosed so the working environment is comfortable and sheltered from the elements.
Follow us as we take you on a tour of the building that will be home to a new main floor ballroom, pre-function space, underground parking, loading docks and a third floor that will grow to 133,000 sq. ft. of contiguous pillarless exhibition space with the new City View Room stitching the two buildings together high above York Avenue.
For an exterior look of our expansion, watch our Construction Cam for daily updates.
