Toronto Asks Gehry to Go Back to Drawing Board
"Though the proposal to build three Frank Gehry-designed condo towers on King Street West near John Street remains alive, the project as designed has hit a new roadblock," reports CBC news.
"A motion introduced by Coun. Adam Vaughan on Wednesday calls for a working group to be struck to examine the project in greater detail. Vaughan said the intention is to find a compromise that will see three Frank Gehry-designed buildings come to the Entertainment District but not of the size and scale proposed."
"Vaughan said components of the plan – such an art gallery showcasing Mirvish's collection and a classroom space for OCAD University – would be a great addition to [the] King West [neighbourhood]."
