Toronto’s Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art to Triple Space with New $6 Million Renovated Site

The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto has signed a contract that will move it into the first two-and-a-half floors of the Tower Automotive Building, which will be revamped, reports James Adams in the Globe and Mail. The renovation, which is expected to be completed in late 2016 or early 2017, will cost the museum six million dollars. Coming after some six years of meetings, discussions, and negotiations the museum held with forty-seven developers and landowners, the deal will give the institution three times more space than its current 10,600-square-foot site, which it has occupied since 2005.

“We’ re looking at this as our permanent home, for all intents and purposes,” said David Liss, the artistic director and curator of the museum.
