Forma Condos Toronto – a long-awaited project coming from theatre mogul David Mirvish in conjunction with Great Gulf developers and renowned architect Frank Gehry. Situated in the Art and Entertainment District on King Street West, the project will feature 2 residential condominium towers that rise 84 storeys and 73 storeys high and will house approximately 2,034 condo units, ranging from studio floor plans up to 3-bedroom + den suites.
This unparalleled project will be the tallest Frank Gehry designed building in the world – a masterpiece coming to 266 & 276 King Street West, and promises to change the Toronto skyline forever.
Located on King Street West, Forma will be an exceptional addition to the city at the nexus between the Entertainment and Financial District.
The development plan includes the preservation of the Princess of Wales theatre and includes space for art exhibitions and the OCAD University, formerly known as the Ontario College of Art and Design. Not only does this plan have 2 residential towers but will also include retail and commercial space consisting of two 6-storey (33.5 metres in height)stepped podiums.
TRB’s Top Reasons to Buy at Forma Condos
We think Forma Condos will be one of the biggest pre-construction condo projects to hit Toronto this year and there are many reasons to buy during the launch phase. Here are some of them.
Trophy Real Estate
Unrivalled, world-class condominiums in downtown Toronto. Frank Gehry has transformed the world of architecture. Now, the Maestro of Form is coming home. Forma’s iridescent façade and twisting shape will reflect the colours of the sun and the form of the surrounding buildings to change Toronto’s skyline forever.
It’s not often the case that architects grow to become household names. But Frank Gehry has never lived by any common practice. The award-winning architect has spent more than a half-century disrupting the very meaning of design within architecture. From the iconic Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (which Philip Johnson called “the greatest building of our time”) to the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Gehry has proven time and again the force that’s produced when whimsical design is done masterfully.
And Forma Condos promises to be among his greatest. Buyers looking for the golden trophy to sit atop their investment portfolio have found the one in Forma Condos.
Residents of Forma Condos will live with the city of Toronto at their doorstep. No better location can be found for residents, as they step out to Toronto’s PATH system, the new OCAD educational facilities, numerous subway stops, Toronto’s theatre district, nightlife, and some of the best dining the city has to offer, and so much more.
With a perfect transit score of 100/100 and a walk score of 98/100, living within the centre of it all happens here at Forma Condos.
Investors will love the multiple opportunities that owning at Forma Condos offers, through the huge rental pool available to them in this location. With offices like Amazon, Sony, Shopify, Meta (coming soon), the entire banking hub of Toronto and the entertainment sector surrounding Forma Condos, rents will be in demand and Forma Condos is sure to woo the most attractive renters in the city.
Interior Design and Toronto Condos are not typically words found in the same sentence. But Forma Condos changes that with their insights and thoughtfulness in what promises to be show-stopping design in each suite. Working with Studio Paolo Ferrari has allowed the interior design approach to feel more like an exclusive boutique hotel, rather than a cookie-cutter condo.
With three levels of finishes and multiple options in each category, buyers will be able to select from the highest of quality materials and rich colour palets that stand the test of time.
Hotel living is something many have dreamed of, and living at Forma Condos will make you feel like you’ve moved into your favourite luxe hotel. Not only will residents enjoy an elevated concierge, but they will have access to the Forma Condos Resident Service Director team – think of them as your right-hand man, your personal butler, your booking concierge and pal to assist with what you need, 24-hours a day.
The top floor at Forma Condos sits 73 storeys above Toronto and will feature the Grand Suites – not owner suites but amenity space for all to enjoy. The luxurious Health & Wellness retreat area will sit in this space, and feature a yoga room, fitness area, stretching room, spin studio and cardio room. As well in this space will be a Creator’s Club with co-working space, meeting rooms, nooks for private study, a games and billiards room, a private dining area with a chef’s kitchen and best of all, the entire space can be booked for your private events in one of the best and most thoughtfully designed rooms in the city.

About the Developers
David Mirvish is the son of the late Ed Mirvish who owned the discount department store “Honest Eds”. He owns and operates many theatres in Toronto and overtook Mirvish Productions in 1987 “for the purpose of administering and producing shows for Toronto’s historic Royal Alexandra Theatre”. The Princess of Wales Theatre was another project by David Mirvish in 1993. Mirvish began a new business venture in 2000 as a real estate developer and began construction of a large condominium known as One King West.
Great Gulf has over 20 years of experience and has “provided the best engineers, project and development managers, real estate developers and construction workers to property owners”. They have constructed projects both big and small including different types and sizes of the development. Some of their projects include: Monde Condos at East Bayfront, Whitby Meadows in Williamsburg, 8 Cumberland in Yorkville, Home Power Adelaide in Corktown and coming soon is 101 Spadina in the Entertainment District.
World-renowned architect Frank Gehry grew up in the Toronto neighbourhood and established his practice in 1962 in Los Angeles, California. The Gehry Partners, LLP was formed in 2001 employing senior architects with extensive experience. They have approximately 100 staff members in their architectural firm “with extensive international experience in the design and construction of academic, museum, theatre, performance and commercial projects”. Frank Gehry personally undertakes all designs in every project including the redesign of the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2008.
This collaboration between Great Gulf and The Gehry Partners, LLP will result in the Mirvish + Forma Condos – a living urban community close to the finest art, culture and design life that Toronto has to offer.
