City Council approved the continued development of the Toronto Museum Project, an initiative dedicated to chronicling Toronto’s history through the lens of social, cultural and economic diversity with a strong emphasis on the city’s post-Second World War development. The plan recommends that a new, iconic building be built on the City-owned former Canada Malting property at the foot of Bathurst Street to house the museum as part of the mixed-use redevelopment. In addition to the museum, the new building will also be home to the Global Cities Gallery, a hub for learning, dialogue and research on the development of liveable, sustainable cities. This project is aligned with Toronto’s Agenda for Prosperity and promotion of a strong tourism sector. Preliminary work on the project has included extensive consultation with the public.
