Princess of Wales Theatre Will Not Be Torn Down, Mirvish/Ghery Project Scaled Down

David Mirvish has released updates in the highly controversial Mirvish/Ghery project which had originally called for the destruction of The Princess of Wales Theatre.

Today, information on new plans was released - and the new announcement includes plans to save the theatre, and lowers the number of condos planned for the King Street site from three down to two.

BroadwayWorld first broke news about the originally planned destruction of the theatre back in September 2012.

BroadwayWorld will continue to follow this story and release more information as it becomes available.
