Richmond Yards aspires to be a community hub and destination that facilitates everyday life and events in our city. This development proposes a mixed-use neighbourhood with residential, retail, and commercial space. The proposed street network stitches back the grid of the community, making the site permeable. Buildings are oriented to maximize solar access in public spaces while minimizing wind effects. Productive green roofs and usable green space add vegetation and amenity. Various building types provide housing for different family sizes and variable incomes, in a neighbourhood that is walkable, with connections to bike lanes and public transit. The variety of building types and uses aim to inspire a vibrant community with diverse demographics and local business opportunities.
