Vertical Neighbourhoods Summit
DURATION: FULL DAY
TIME: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM EST
LOCATION: Sidewalk Labs, 307 Lake Shore Blvd E
Southern Ontario is seeing an unprecedented boom in high-rise residential master planned developments, particularly in light of the numerous new master-planned developments emerging throughout GTA including Waterfront Toronto, Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, CityPlace, and the Mirvish Village and Galleria Mall redevelopments. This relatively new development typology presents a number of unique challenges and opportunities:
• Are we building communities with a high quality of life?
• Can these developments support economic vitality?
• How should we approach public realm or infrastructural investments?
• How can we ensure the environmental performance of the developments through design and occupancy?
• What new technologies or strategies should we be incorporating into these buildings and communities?
The Vertical Neighbourhoods Summit is an intensive, full-day conference to explore ways in which we can create high-performance, livable, sustainable, and resilient high-rise neighbourhoods - covering topics surrounding environmental sustainability, infrastructural innovations, and the social and economic vitality of these new communities.
