The Tower Automotive Building at Queen and Shaw in Toronto’s Junction area will become the new home of the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MoCCA) thanks to a deal with The Castlepoint Group six years in the making. “They will virtually own the first three floors,” states Castlepoint president Alfredo Romano, “and the first thing any visitor to the building will experience is the MoCCA presence.”

The renovation of the interior and restoration of exterior (granted heritage designation in 2005) is scheduled to be completed by late 2016 or early 2017. MoCCA artistic director and curator, David Liss, considers the new facility, “our permanent home, for all intents and purposes.” Tripling their current museum space, the move to The Tower Automotive Building could also mean further expansion of up to 5,400 square meters on site over the course of MoCCA’s 20-year lease with Castlepoint.

The Tower Automotive Building retrofit is part of the upcoming Bloor West mixed-use townhome, condo and commercial development project announced recently by Greybrook Realty Partners and The Castlepoint Group. With ample transit nearby (access to TTC streetcar and subway lines, GoTransit and Union Pearson Express service) in an already vibrant, artistic area, the Bloor West development will add new park lands and expand the residential community surrounding the MoCCA, allowing visitors and residents alike to enjoy a new cultural environment in the Lower Junction.
