The press conference for the highly-anticipated King West development by Mirvish with Frank Gehry is currently underway. We've been snapping pictures and thought we'd share some images of the project model with you before reporting back with a full recap of the event later this afternoon.  

Mirvish commented that he is "not building condominiums but rather sculptures"; Gehry followed this comment up with a statement that these models are not yet complete and are still "works in progress". 

The images below are fairly self-explanatory; a dynamic podium sets the stage for three dramatic towers that will undoubtedly change the Toronto skyline. For background information read our earlier article here, and be sure to check back later today for a full report on the press conference.
