Living Toronto Condo Sculptures - Extending Living Spaces to the Sky

October 19, 2012 - Updated: October 19, 2012

Sculptures are being erected in Toronto to the tune of $28 million? Yes it's true and David Mirvish is doing his best to make this happen. While a more accurate description of the sculptures would be "living condo sculptures", they are they are planned to be one of the most impressive condo units ever built in the city.


These Toronto condos will consist of 3 towers with a whopping 80 - 85 stories each. There will also be retail space and an art gallery housed within these buildings. The Ontario College of Art and Design University will have their new campus located here.


David Mirvish has long been known for his contribution to the theater and film world, which makes it quite ironic that the Princess of Wales Theatre will need to come down in order to get these Toronto condos up. Even so, Mirvish still proclaims to be deeply involved with theater and plans on getting more involved.


The Princess of Wales Theatre first opened its doors in 1993 and is just one of the four different Mirvish theaters scattered throughout Toronto. The playhouse that seats 2000 was one of the developments that helped grow King St. West into one of the most popular art districts in Canada.


City Council has the tough job of improving or disapproving the project based on multiple factors. As is expected, there is plenty of backlash against the condo towers from the public as well as from leaders in the community. Distractors to the condo plan are concerned about the height of the project as well as the traffic congestion that will be produced as a result of 7 years of construction.


This is definitely a project that's worth more discussion. While debate over its 80 - 85 stories will definitely come into play, there are other factors to consider such as how this development will add to Toronto's workspace, living space and culture. With 2600 condos being added along with office and retail space, there is a lot more to discuss than just height.


It will definitely be interesting to see what happens with this project since it's going to either open or close the doors to other extravagant Toronto developments in the future. As Mirvish points out, he wants these condos to be a symbol of what this city can be. We'll see whether he has what it takes to get approval and thus define the symbology of Toronto.
