Our Commitment to Sustainability

We will be considering ways to improve energy and water efficiency, support use of public transit and cycling, and incorporate green infrastructure through landscaping and green roofs.

 

Transit-Oriented Development

Focusing growth at higher-order transit nodes and along avenues to reduce car dependency and create an efficient, compact urban form.

Energy & Water Efficiency

Increasing energy and water efficiency, and exploring additional ways to reduce the environmental footprint of this project.

Green Infrastructure

Improving air and water quality and climate resiliency by adding new landscaping and green roofs throughout the site.

Cycling Infrastructure

The City’s Ten Year Cycling Network Plan proposes to add bicycle lanes north-south along Dovercourt Road, Bartlett Avenue, Havelock Street, and Lansdowne Avenue, and east-west along Bloor Street and Dupont Street. We intend to support cycling as a means of getting around the city.

Toronto Green Standards

The Toronto Green Standards (TGS) is a set of performance measures for sustainable site and building design. The TGS integrates environmental performance requirements to improve our air and water quality, reduce green house gas emissions, enhance urban ecology and reduce solid waste to landfill.
