An independent theater company that had once planned to move to ground zero will get a new home designed by famed architect Frank Gehry in New York City's theater district.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday that the city would contribute $25 million toward the $60 million Signature Theatre.

The theater is known for devoting an entire season to the work of a single playwright. It was one of four groups that were to have anchored a performance space at the World Trade Center site.

The theater will be housed in an apartment and hotel complex on 42nd Street. The complex will include three theaters, rehearsal studios, a cafe and a bookstore. The theater is slated to open in 2012.

Gehry's work includes the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
