More than 30 entries were received. Chosen by a national jury of architects, planners and architectural critics, the winning project, the Goodweather, designed by architectural and builder team comprised of Part and Parcel, Studio North and Gravity Architecture, is a contextually responsive design that integrates community and promotes inter-generational living.
When built (the winning team can purchase the land and begin the build process once rezoning has been approved), the development will be comprised of 56 homes: 14 townhomes designed for young families, 21 single bedroom loft dwellings for students and young professionals and 21 ground-level dwellings for seniors.
“Once constructed, the prototype will be used to inspire missing middle infill development in other parts of the city,” says Syvixay.
