“The Royal Connaught condo residents and staff normally celebrate the holidays in style, with a party funded by the former hotel’s developer, the Spallacci Group. Since parties were not to be this year, the company donated the $2,500 it would have spent to Empowerment Squared, a Hamilton-based charity. The organization used the cash to buy holiday gift cards and hampers for families in need, support international students stranded without work or funding, and buy hardware for kids taking school online.
A new phase of the Royal Connaught development, called The Moderne, is launching in early 2021. It is one of several new residential towers planned for the site, and will be 36 storeys tall.”
