Inspired by the opportunity to revitalize an existing rental apartment neighbourhood, the proposal includes a new 26 storey rental building, stepping down to the scale of the street with a six storey podium. A row of townhouses at the rear of the property help frame the master-planned site with a centralized landscaped open space, adjacent amenity areas and pedestrian pathways. A new driveway pattern is proposed to reduce the amount of asphalt on the site while allowing vehicular drop-off zones for all buildings. The proposed tower’s footprint is narrow to provide maximum setback from existing adjacent buildings. The contemporary design of the new tower splits the building massing into vertical and horizontal elements as a counterpoint to the adjacent 1960s era slab buildings on the site.
