Description
New Neighborhoods reconfigures the traditional neighborhood of free-standing houses with private backyards as a dense, community-oriented combination of mid-rise housing and shared gardens. The pattern of residence and garden is scaled to that of a neighborhood, while the overall massing has the commanding presence of an urban gateway. The activities of a diverse population are interwoven with residential units to support social life: athletes in the YMCA, children in the community garden, commuters in the plaza, shoppers in the grocery store, and pedestrians on Eglinton Avenue and Yonge Street.
