Mirvish-Gehry King West project: Twitter weighs in

What do you prefer for Toronto: century-old buildings along King Street West or a triple-tower condo development? David Mirvish - son of Honest Ed's founder Ed Mirvish - and architect Frank Gehry want the latter. What do you think? Tweet us @TorontoStar. Here's what some people are saying so far.


  1. The city is abuzz about the skyline-changing development, but there are still years of negotiations and planning ahead. Developers submitted an application to the city Monday. It includes, among other things, Princess of Wales theatre will close and Toronto will get two new museums.

    “I am not building condominiums, I am building three sculptures for people to live in,” said David Mirvish. 

  2. Torontonians have had a mixed reaction. What's your opinion?
