Great Gulf to develop Mirvish+Gehry project in Toronto
Great Gulf and Ed Mirvish Enterprises have reached agreement on the sale to Great Gulf of the site of the proposed landmark Mirvish+Gehry project in the heart of Toronto’s downtown Entertainment District.
“In Great Gulf we have selected a developer who is capable of executing Frank Gehry’s vision, and will work well with him to bring the project to realization,” said David Mirvish, President, Ed Mirvish Enterprises. “I believe the project will do honour to the history of the people in the city who built it to what it is today and will continue to project Toronto’s possibilities onto the world stage. Ed Mirvish Enterprises and Projectcore will move forward to support Great Gulf’s efforts throughout the process as they fulfill Gehry’s vision for Toronto.”
The development on the site located at the intersection of King St. and Duncan St. will feature the tallest residential structures in Canada. The development will comprise two towers with 82 storeys in the East Tower and 92 in the West Tower anchored by a multi-level podium. The site is zoned for mixed use including retail, office, institutional, hospitality and condominium suites in the towers.
