Both buildings reduced from 10 Storeys to 8 Storeys in conformance with the Douglas – Upton Plan.

Unit count is revised from 305 to 278.

Site Access is removed from Cloverdale Avenue and single vehicular access is provided on Alder Street.

Having divided the project into 2 buildings has created the opportunity for a central open space service courtyard that will provide necessary off-street space for:

  • access to the underground parking
  • an important mid-block walkway connection from Alder Street to Rutledge Park
  • internalized garbage collection access
  • surface parking for visitor drop-off and Woodsmere car share vehicles
  • More light air and views for the residents
  • Meaningful CEPTD overwatch
  • Internal green space and outdoor gathering space for the residents
  • A breezeway through the center of Building A has been added to improve connection between Cloverdale Avenue and the above noted mid-block connection to the park as well as to Building B.
  • Street trees have been added along Alder Street and along Cloverdale Avenue.
  • New Sidewalk have been added along both street frontages.
  • The main entrances to both buildings have been defined with special paving and entry canopies as with signature landscaping.
  • A pedestrian drop-off along Cloverdale Avenue will be constructed of permeable paving
  • Street side parking has been added along Alder Street.
  • Building B has been designed around a central outdoor amenity courtyard. This courtyard has been situated to expand the visual outdoor open space for the adjacent single family rather than having a long building wall overlooking their properties.  The amenity courtyard has the following features:
  • A covered pavilion for group BBQs
  • A formal lawn for sunbathing/picnics/games
  • A visual and physical connection from Alder Street into the courtyard.
  • A treed drainage swale has been included along the East property line to provide storm water control and treatment as well as privacy for the neighbors. This drainage swale is connected to a significant rain garden in the southeast corner of the site which will provide a large are for storm water treatment and plenty of space for any new replacement trees.
