Iconic architect Frank Gehry has announced the official start of construction on Forma, the high-rise residential towers in his birthplace city of Toronto.

Located at 266 and 276 King Street West in the center of Toronto’s entertainment district, Forma will offer 2,087 condominium units across the two towers that rise 73- and 84-storeys, respectively. The towers feature the twisting designs and shimmering façade that have become the architect’s trademark style, as witnessed in his celebrated Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and they represent Gehry’s tallest project.

“This building is very close to my heart,” said Gehry in a press statement. “Toronto is my hometown, and I wanted to do right by it. We wanted to make a building that paid homage to Toronto’s rich past while also looking forward to its optimistic future. I hope that we have succeeded in making a sculpture on the skyline to reflect the light and essence of this city that I love.”

The project has already reached more than $1 billion in sales, including a $20 million penthouse suite. Forma is being developed in a collaboration between the developers Great Gulf Group, Dream and Westdale Properties.

“We are thrilled to be standing on the future site of Forma to celebrate the official start of turning this exceptional vision into a reality,” says Mitchell Cohen, CEO at Westdale Properties. “This project truly raises the bar for the future of urban living in Toronto. There are hundreds of people who have worked to get us here and I am proud to work with a powerhouse team that bolsters a visionary approach to architecture and interior design. After almost a decade of planning, the momentum for this project has only continued to grow, made evident by the incredible reception we have received to date.”
