Regent Park Block 16 North is a key part of phase 3 of Regent Park’s revitalization scheme. This block is located south of Oak St, north of Dundas St, west of Tubman Ave, and east of Sumach St. The Regent Park Aquatic Centre is adjacent, on the other side of Sumach St. This midrise building consists entirely of affordable rental units for TCHC tenants. The design brief emphasized multi-storey units marketed towards families, with a focus on units having a strong at-grade relationship with the street. A high level of design will be met through rigorous reviews internally with TCHC and the project team as well as periodic presentations to the TCHC design review panel. The project will meet Tier 2 of Toronto Green Standards. We are also working on Block 17 North, directly to the east.
Streetscape design is fully coordinated with Regent Park’s urban design guidelines. The third floor outdoor terrace is furnished with long benches for seating/working, allotment gardens, and one sculptural play element.
