The Lower Donlands on Toronto’s Waterfront are currently planned to be developed into several different neighborhoods. In accordance with Waterfront Toronto’s strict sustainability and design regulations, the project proposes to turn a former warehouse site into a sustainable residential neighborhood. Completed as part of a team of 3, the project incorporates aspects of urban planning, landscape architecture, and architecture. All members of the team (2 architects and one landscape architect) collaborated on the neighborhood design and plan, while working individually on certain portions within the neighborhood.
Each team member designed an individual project, including the entertainment hub, bike hub, and condominiums. The condominium project required a significant amount of sensitivity towards the exterior site parameters as well as integration into the group’s urban plan. The result, a bike residence, uses a mixed-use program to promote the urban concept and highlight the main attractions in the proposed neighborhood.
