Fort McMurray, Alberta
The focus of this project was the design of a new high density residential subdivision adjacent to the Clearwater and Hangingstone Rivers. The challenge of the project was to accommodate the desired building density and the associated parking requirements while still having a pedestrian friendly green spaces. The solution intertwines treed avenues and green space buffers with building types ranging from row houses to 16 storey high-rises. Pathways throughout the site provide convenient linkages with to a large, primarily passive recreation park, to the south. The plan breaks up the monotony of the building mass.
