About Regent Park Sackville Dundas Residences

This project inaugurated the first phase of the redevelopment of Regent Park—Canada’s largest and oldest public housing project. It addresses the main objectives of area revitalization—mixed housing and income, safety, and sustainable design—while also contributing to resident quality of life and the area’s architectural fabric.

The project consists of two buildings, resting on a low podium facing a future neighborhood park to the east. The southern low-rise building contains 75 family units, while the northern high-rise tower contains 150 seniors’ units. Beneath the building are two levels of underground parking as well as the district heating and cooling cogeneration plant that will service the entire Regent Park community. An increased level of amenity was created through the raised garden court, roof gardens, landscaped outdoor spaces, retail and community spaces. Key design strategies include natural day lighting for all occupied spaces, reduced energy consumption through the Community Energy System, conservation of potable water, and passive solar shading throughout the building design.
