Hubbard Park Apartments

Hubbard Park Apartments

This project involved design and technical leadership to create 27 new apartments from a badly deteriorated building. This alteration realizes the full potential of marrying excellence in architectural design with community needs within a strict budget. Sustainable design solutions were applied to resolve deteriorating building conditions and for upgrades to meet
current codes.

 

Careful planning allowed for the insertion of an elevator and creation of a lobby where previously none existed. The building shell had historical value and also contained a valuable material resource. Consequently the entire shell of the building was retained while floors and roof were replaced. Photo-voltaic panels over part of the roof also shade the tenants’ new amenity space and laundry overlooking a new green roof.

 

This was an as-of-right project which required no planning approvals. Community and tenant consultation was undertaken at the design stages of this project. The project received a Toronto Heritage Conservation Award.
