The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) has decided to choose Ward 18 as their new home in the Junction Triangle. MOCCA will be moving it's operations to 158 Sterling Road, where it will take over the first two and a half floors of the iconic Tower Automotive Building. The heritage building was built in 1919 and has served an important role in our history. Renovations will take place as early as fall 2015 with a target completion date of winter 2016/17.
I am proud to welcome MOCCA to our community as we work together on this City building project at 158 Sterling in the months and years ahead. A new neighbourhood is taking shape there, bringing with it new jobs, new affordable housing, a new child care centre, a new park, and featuring MOCCA as an arts and cultural hub in our community.
