An ambitious move that will change Toronto’s landscape is perhaps the best way to describe the Frank Gehry David Mirvish Towers project.

The three avant-garde residential buildings will be located in the center of Toronto’e entertainment district on King Street West, beside the Royal Alexandra Theater. Ambitious and avant-garde, the constructions will tower with heights of 80 to 85 meters. Though these residential buildings are impressive in their own right, they will also include a base that will house a contemporary art collection.

The galleries that are part of this project will exhibit the private contemporary art collection of David and Audrey Mirvish that has been acquired over a period of 50 years. It is evident that the Frank Gehry David Mirvish Towers project will change Toronto’s skyline and and enrich the cultural scene of this Canadian city.
