60 Richmond Street East Co-operative Housing

Located in the downtown core, this 11-storey, 85-unit co-operative building occupies the entire site, extending to the property limits on three sides and within inches of the neighbouring building to the east. Challenges during formwork operations included lay down and staging areas in public roadways and multi-storey forming scaffolds to accommodate the openings “carved” into the exterior walls.

As a LEED Gold certified project, the building includes multiple terraces and light wells that support growing beds for herbs and vegetables destined for the ground floor restaurant. The “green” theme is prominent throughout with planted terraces, engineered green roofs and grow-wall features.
