Part of the revitalization of Canada’s oldest and largest social housing project, this 11-storey residential building features unexpected outdoor spaces that enhance quality of life. On the 9th floor, a large, partially covered terrace provides shaded seating, a large harvest table and a wrap-around city view. Raised planters give residents the opportunity to grow herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables.
The second-floor green roof includes an urban park, complete with natural playground, water play area, sports surface and activity path. Native plants support birds and pollinators, providing residents with a connection to nature. On the top floor, an expansive green roof promotes biodiversity, reduces storm water run-off and lessens the urban heat island effect.
