ERA Architects in joint venture with SvN is currently undertaking the deep energy retrofit of three high-rise apartment buildings, owned by Toronto Community Housing. This project will impact over 800 units, improving tenant health, comfort, and safety, while reducing utility consumption and GHG emissions by up to 30%. The project involves major structural and envelope remediation, while updating building systems, balconies and building entryways.
New resident outdoor amenities are being rebuilt as part of this process. A community engagement program allows these improvements to be made in close consultation with residents, and a two-year program to bring city-run services directly to the site is being implemented.
Projects are midway through construction, with completion slated for 2019 .
