FRANK GEHRY’S DESIGNS POSTED FOR 2 SKYSCRAPERS WHERE KING WEST MEETS ED MIRVISH WAY

FRANK GEHRY <in the foreground>, who was born in Toronto and is based in Los Angeles, has since developed a second-to-none international career. Now he’s planning to erect 298-metre-high and 267-metre-high skyscrapers in the heart of Toronto’s Financial and Theatre Districts.FRANK GEHRY – “I wanted to create an ensemble of buildings that were respectful to the city and referential to the Toronto that I once knew. I want the two towers to each have their own personality, but I also want them to talk to each other, creating a dynamic and changing addition to the skyline depending from where you were viewing them,” added Gehry, who will be 92 at the end of February/2021.Initially the project plan was three towers, but this all changed and the Princes of Wales Theatre was saved. The former plan was undertaken by well-known Torontonian, David Mirvish, who sold the project in 2017 to developer Great Gulf. That company is now working on the scheme with Westdale Properties and Dream Unlimited.Frank Gehry is coming home to help create a new skyline for the city he loves. — “He is the heart and soul of the project,” said Westdale Properties COO Mitchell Cohen.
