Toronto Hydro has restored power to thousands of downtown residents after the lights went out at seven condo towers.

The power went out around 6 p.m. on Wednesday at CityPlace, near Lake Shore Boulevard and Lower Spadina Avenue. The power was out for about nine hours.

According to a tweet from the CityPlace residents association, there was a ‘switch gear failure’ at 249 Queens Quay W. That’s the address of the Radisson Hotel. Feeders at Front and Windsor streets were repaired, and power came back on at CityPlace just after 3 a.m. on Thursday.
