The Tippett Regeneration Area represents thoughtful and complete community plans that are enhanced through elegant architecture, affordable and rental housing, thoughtful community facilities, sustainable engineering, and a respect for arts and culture, making this new community a landmark in achieving many of the City’s initiatives.
The Tippett Regeneration Area is a two-phased development comprised of a total of four buildings and approximately 900 units will contribute 200 new affordable units (100 rental and 100 ownership units), a proposed community space, and a new daycare facility, all of which will be structured around a municipal road dedication, and oriented around a new central park. All of the initiatives will be further enhanced by a network of pedestrian and cycling oriented routes, focused on connecting the central park and the subway entrance to the Wilson Subway Station, putting residents just minutes from Highway 401, Yorkdale Mall, shops, cafes, and more.
Within the masterplan of the Tippett Regeneration Area, 36 and 36R Tippett, will be located at the northerly portion of the site. In this vibrant, urban neighbourhood will live a 14-storey 291-unit condominium building which will include 50 affordable ownership units and a daycare centre that will be accessible to local residents. 36R Tippett is designed as a beacon for this future community, where the rental building will feature a striking black façade, cantilevered balconies and thoughtful suite layouts, rising above beautiful landscaped gardens. Ready for occupancy in 2019, 36R will stand 8-storeys, including 171-units, 50 of which will be affordable rental units.
Designed with a rich network of publicly accessible open spaces. True to its contemporary context, the buildings invite people to permeate through the site and enhance safety, connectivity and community interaction. Ever mindful of its relationship to the surrounding neighbourhood and to the new central park, a thoughtful approach has been taken in the placement and massing strategy of the buildings, ensuring greenspaces remain accessible and shadow impacts are mitigated.
Acquired from Build Toronto, these developments were conceived from a city-wide initiative to fulfill a crucial city building goal of building affordable ownership and new affordable rentals.
