With their diverse blend of possible types including residential, commercial, cultural, and entertainment venues, mixed-use buildings can add vibrancy and vitality to a community, along with presenting excellent opportunities for sustainability and increased efficiencies. They often feature convenient connections for pedestrians and cyclists and enable people to work and live in the same area, allowing for more efficient use of land and public infrastructure.

This section features case studies on some of Canada’s most dynamic mixed-used developments and the innovative approaches they’ve taken to promote greener, more sustainable communities and optimize well-being, while maximizing return on investment for building owners.
