Honourable Mention: City Edge Development – Plaza
Mayor’s Urban Design Awards – 2022
The Plaza is envisioned as a central community gathering hub for the West District community, acting as a central node for surrounding retail and live/work units. The bridge above has two elliptical oculi to provide dynamic lighting throughout the day and also visually connect the residents on the bridge level to the activity below. The partially covered plaza also allows for flexibility of use throughout the year, ensuring the public realm remains vibrant as the seasons change. This bridge is an outdoor amenity space that connects the adjacent indoor amenity from each of the towers. Visually, it connects the towers to create a prominent streetscape and provides a cohesive pedestrian realm along Broadcast Ave.
