Haute 100 LA Update: Frank Gehry to Reimagine Toronto’s Entertainment District

Frank Gehry has teamed up with former art dealer David Mirvish to reimagine the downtown entertainment district of Toronto.

The 83-year-old’s renovation plans include three 80- to 85-story residential towers with shops at street level.

The complex will feature a 60,000-square-foot museum that will showcase Mirvish’s extensive art collection including pieces by  Frank Stella, David Smith, Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler.

Plans also include a space for the public learning center of OCAD University.

It is expected to take seven years to construct.

Gehry previously renovated the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Gehry said: “It is very special for me to be able to work in Toronto, where I was born, and to engage the neighborhoods where I grew up.”
