Momentum Developments retained GSP Group to assist with planning approvals, urban design and landscape architecture for two highrise towers extending above a three-storey podium. Over 300 residential units and underground parking are proposed at this mixed-use development in Downtown Kitchener’s Innovation District.
GSP Group prepared a planning report and urban design brief in support of the official plan and zoning by-law amendments. Consultation involved neighbours and agencies.
The streetscape design continues the approach and palette that GSP Group began with the nearby One Victoria Condos. The principal resident amenity spaces will be on rooftops. GSP Group has applied extensive rooftop design experience to create a communal lounge area with seating and food preparation areas. Rows of drought tolerant plant materials frame each of these areas and reduce stormwater runoff.
Victoria Street frontage will feature furnishings, street trees, plantings, and high quality paving treatments for a comfortable environment located less than a five-minute walk from the Regional Multi-Modal Transit Hub.
