Explore Our Neighbourhood
MOCA is located in the Lower Junction Triangle, a neighbourhood in the West End of Toronto, between Bloor Street and Dundas Street West along Sterling Road. Once an industrial and manufacturing hub bordered by three rail lines, the rail is now used for the GO Train and Union Pearson Express trains. Today, the mixed-use spaces in the neighbourhood and the surrounding area are home to a convergence of different types of businesses and residents, including art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and shops.
MOCA Toronto’s home in the historic Auto Bldg is at the heart of the Lower Junction Triangle. The Museum inhabits the first three floors of the building, built in 1919 as an aluminium factory. Originally one of Toronto’s tallest towers, the 10-story structure is known for its unique architecture with fluted columns and industrial barn doors, which have been restored and are now a defining feature of the Museum space.
