Garrison Point, Phase 2
Building on the success of our Garrison Point project, we have started the same process for the balance of the lands: a 3 parcel, 2.1 acre site within the overall triangle lands. This second phase of the master plan consists of 3 towers, including a landmark tower at 49 storeys. Working with our award-winning design team, including David Pontarini of Hariri Pontarini Architects, Tom Kerwin of Chicago-based bKL Architecture, and landscape architect Claude Cormier, we have incorporated a thoughtful urban design approach and architectural excellence into the entire project: the form of the towers will exhibit high-quality architecture, and the base buildings will animate the street and provide for a comfortable, inviting pedestrian environment. Strachan Avenue will be transformed into an active urban street forming a significant retail hub while providing an inviting retail promenade that extends to new cafes and patios lining Ordnance Street.
More than half of the site will be transformed into a new 4 acre public park, conceptually designed by world renowned landscape architect, Claude Cormier. The park will enhance the public realm with an incredible open space amenity, featuring a proposed Olympic sized swimming pool and a touchdown point for a new bridge that will knit the west core of the city, from Trinity Bellwoods Park and Stanley Park to historic Fort York and the Lake. A landscaped pedestrian mews will provide a view corridor from Liberty Village into the park.
Once complete, this will be an exciting new mixed use community where new residents can live, work and shop with the conveniences of daily city living, and at the same time, play in an urban backyard right outside their front door.
