The proposed development is a Passive House multi-unit mixed use building that respects the changing nature of the community. One of the major goals of this project is to create a Passive House building. According to Canadian Passive House Institute (CanPHI), Passive House is an “approach to building design and construction that allows for energy savings of 80 – 90%, compared to conventional Canadian construction. This revolutionary energy performance demands a rigorous and scientific approach to design and construction and results in a highly efficient and sustainable development.” (CanPHI)
In recent years, residential/commercial projects have been proposed to redevelop some of the area’s major commercial properties. To help understand this ongoing transition, and to collect public feedback at early stages of the design process, we held a Developer’s Open House on June 09, 2015. Based on the feedback received, WSP/A49 made changes to the building design and we are now starting the official planning process. After a preliminary review, City Staff will schedule a Public Information Meeting to receive public feedback on the project. We will post the date of the meeting in this page once it is determined.
