The Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada has been active for more than twenty-five years in the city. It currently spans three floors of the Tower Automotive Building at 158 Sterling Road in the Lower Junction, a neighbourhood currently undergoing substantive residential and commercial redevelopment, and formerly a principal centre of manufacturing and railway transit in the city. Erected in 1919, the building was at the time the tallest building in Toronto and operational until 2006. Its distinctive, concrete flat-slab architecture–considered innovative at the time of its opening—has been retained throughout the recent renovations.
