Mirvish + Gehry Condo is a powerful creative synergy set to transform Toronto’s iconic King Street arts and entertainment district. David Mirvish and Frank Gehry have joined forces to unveil a bold new vision for our Cultural Corridor, with the creation of a new public gallery, cultural and educational facilities, residential and business spaces.
The inspired vision will see King Street evolve into a thriving, livable urban community, a great address to come home to and experience the finest in art, culture, design and life that Toronto has to offer.
The west tower is approved for 92 storeys, 1005 feet / 305 metres, qualifying it as a ‘Supertall’. Its podium is planned to have four levels of retail (including a mezzanine) and four levels of office space, with the condominium amenities on the podium-top level and the one above, with condo suites in tower floors above. The building will slightly overhang the Princess of Wales Theatre to the west.
The east tower is approved for 82 storeys and 902 feet / 275 metres. The podium will include three levels of retail (including a mezzanine) and three levels of office space, along with two levels for OCAD University. Like in the west tower, the first two levels will house the amenities—including the podium-top terrace—with the condo suites rising above.
As part of the development, the David Mirvish Gallery will be built on one floors of the renovated heritage Eclipse White Wear Building at 322 King Street West at John.
The master plan for Mirvish+Gehry Toronto includes over 85,000 sq. ft. of multi-level retail opportunities in the heart of Toronto’s Arts and Entertainment District.
