Mirvish and Gehry on King St. West

Mirvish and Gehry on King St. West

For this project, sited on King near John St. in Toronto’s entertainment district, David Mirvish and Frank Gehry propose a three-building residential and mixed-use complex including OCAD University’s “Princess of Wales Centre for Visual Arts,” as well as a new public art gallery. The new gallery will make available for the first time David Mirvish’s unique collection of large-scale modern artworks, which includes influential painters and sculptors such as Anthony Caro, Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Lewis, Frank Stella, and renowned Canadian, Jack Bush, among many others.

As heritage consultant, ERA is assessing the project’s interaction with local heritage and cultural resources, including a conservation strategy for the Royal Alex Theatre. We performed a similar role during Frank Gehry’s renovations for the Art Gallery of Ontario.
