This Toronto Green Standard Version 2 Tier 2 building includes:

Low Lighting Power Density

  • All suites and common spaces are equipped with LED fixtures throughout.

District Energy

  • High seasonal heating efficiency of 86.1 percent and high season Coefficient Of Performance (COP) of 6.8 using the Regent Park District Energy System.

Bike Storage

  • A total of 198 long-term bicycle storage spaces are provided in the underground parking level P1 and at-grade combined. There are also 12 bicycle spaces provided for visitors on the ground floor.

Enhanced Waste Storage, Collection & Sorting

  • Separated cabinet space is featured in all kitchen suites for segregated collection of each of the three waste streams. Separate chutes for collection of each of the three waste streams (garbage, organics, recycling) are present on all floors.

Treated At-Grade Hardscape

  • 84 percent of the at-grade hardscape areas are treated to reduce the project’s contribution to the urban heat island effect, predominantly through permeable pavement, but also through high albedo paving and shading.

Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings

  • Low-flow plumbing fixtures were selected for installation to reduce potable water consumption by 50 percent compared to a building with conventional plumbing fixtures (according to LEED baseline). This amounts to over 20.9 million litres of water saved annually.
  • Energy Savings kW h: 55 per cent savings compared to Model National Energy Code for Buildings 1997 baseline.
