TORONTO - The Raptors' new training facility cleared its final hurdle Monday, receiving approval from Toronto city council.

Mayor Rob Ford and his brother Counc. Doug Ford were the lone two votes against the $30-million facility to be built at Exhibition Place.

The opening of the 64,000 square-foot facility is set to coincide with the 2016 NBA all-star game in Toronto.

Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd., which owns the Raptors, will pay construction and operating costs and rent the facility for 20 years, starting at $205,000 annually.

The facility will also be available for use by community groups.
