Institutional affiliation:
Alternate names: Hummingbird Tower / CityCentre Tower
NotesAn initial proposal for a residential tower and other changes to this performing arts space was proposed in 2003. In 2004, this proposal was re-worked and re-presented to City Council, at that time the height of the residential tower was increased by two floors. The proposed development would include two performing arts spaces, a tourist information centre, and ArtsLab, an interactive culture museum. In January 2005, it was announced that Daniel Liebiskind would design the project, including a fifty storey residential tower. In September, 2005, renderings of the proposed tower were released, and it was announced that the performing arts space would be known as CityCentre. The condominium tower began to be marketed in March, 2007. In October, 2008, it was announced that the arts component of the tower had fallen through, resulting in the truncation of the "L" shaped extension beside the Sony Centre, and the creation of a "public plaza" at the entrance of the building. Preparation for construction of the tower began in late 2009.
