The site is located in the Riversdale Community on Avenue B, in between 21st and 22nd Street West. The site is 1 ½ blocks from the shops, restaurants, and theatre of 20th Street West. It is 4 blocks from the Farmer’s Market and the River Landing development, and is 3 blocks from Midtown Plaza.
The client’s instructions from the beginning of the project were to “design a building that creates activity at the street level and also invites the public into a lively, active, colourful interior courtyard – similar to Granville Island in Vancouver.”
