A Historic Tower Prepares for an Artsy New Tenant

MoCCA Tower Automotive

Catching up with a museum on the move

By Eric Mutrie

MoCCA reopens next year as the Museum of Contemporary Art_Toronto_Canada on the first five floors of Sterling Road’s Art Deco Tower Automotive Building, lovingly restored by ERA Architects and Peter Clewes of Architects Alliance. These new digs will be a serious step up from the art gallery’s former home on West Queen West. In addition to three floors of exhibition space, the revamped institution will feature a theatre space and a library-like lounge.
