This LEED® Certified Candidate building includes:

Multi-Chute Recycling and Under Counter Waste Stations

Centralized garbage chutes are located throughout the project connected to the underground garbage room with a tri-sorter providing options for organics, recycling and general garbage. For further convenience, all suites are equipped with 3-stream integrated waste bins.

HRVs, High-Efficiency Mechanical Systems and Improved Air Quality

Each suite is uniquely enhanced with a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) combined with high-efficiency mechanical systems. The HRV delivers fresh, filtered outdoor air to each room in the suite for improved ventilation and enhanced air quality.

Electrical Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Capacity to support 10% of the parking spaces installing EV chargers in the future, approx. 16 charging stations in total.

Bike Storage

Designated storage for 98 bicycles.

Stormwater Management

383m3 storage tank – holds 383,000L

A cistern collects water on rainy days and stores the water for future use. A portion of the harvested rainwater contributes to watering the landscape.

Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings

35% better than OBC standards

High-performance fixtures and toilets achieve a 35% reduction in water consumption and promote cost savings.

Construction Waste Diversion

Over 85% Diverted from Landfill

Construction waste sent to landfill was reduced by implementing a construction waste management plan and working with waste haulers to divert more than 84% of construction waste materials.

Low Emitting Materials

Environmentally friendly underlay, hardwood, ceramic flooring and low-toxicity paints in each suite significantly reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air.

 

Airtight Construction & Energy Efficiency

High quality construction practices and an extra layer of insulation blanketing the exterior walls for a quieter, more comfortable home with reduced heating and cooling costs.

Efficient Lighting

All suites are fully equipped with LED lighting. These lights last up to 10 times longer and consume less than one-quarter of the energy compared to their incandescent counterparts.

ENERGY STAR® Appliances

ENERGY STAR appliances are standard in every suite and include stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and front-loading washing machine. ENERGY STAR qualified products use 30% less energy to do the same job as non-ENERGY STAR qualified products, saving homeowners money while creating fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Sub-metering Utilities

Electricity, hot water and cold water are individually metered ensuring homeowners only pay for their in-suite consumption.
