The Third & Hawkins development is a 20-suite, six-storey condo building that prioritizes community and environmentally sustainable lifestyles. With an eye to walkability and active living, the site is in a residential neighbourhood, minutes from downtown, the Waterfront trails and Millennium trails, and the Long Lake / Hospital trail network.
With an acute focus on a communal atmosphere and aging-in-place features, the building includes both a common social space and a welcoming exterior that together provide an invitation for gathering and socializing among residents. The overall design places an importance on circulation, affording generous, well-planned spaces that accommodate those, of all ages, in need of mobility assistance or may need such assistance in the future.
A strong goal for the building was to maximize the light and views - helped by the positioning of the building on the site - and a high level of energy efficiency. Sustainable Tech, as the energy system consultant, was approached to integrate sustainable principles into the design. Their work included a site-specific building system (mechanical & electrical) evaluation that incorporates renewable energy collection in the form of on-site solar panels.
This building is modelled to have 20% energy savings, when compared to the Nation Energy Code for Buildings 2015 baseline.
