BELLE ISLE NORTH TOWHOMES
The project site is located immediately North of Integra’s Belle Isle Park Townhomes, in the now developing area of the Lions Gate Neighbourhood. The development takes into consideration the overall surrounding developments that are contributing to the revitalization of the neighbourhood.
The proposed community consists of 10 three-storey buildings with 112 stacked townhouse units oriented around several internal, landscaped courtyards with walkways that link to adjacent recreational areas. The project also allows for future linkages to neighbouring developments, to the redeveloping Belle Isle Park to the South, and to the community facilities proposed beyond, in the Lions Gate Village centre.
The proposed development has three buildings front Belle Isle Place, two of which bound the Northern edge of the park, which provides an openness and relief along the streetscape. Similar to the Belle Isle Townhomes to the South, pedestrian connections between buildings are provided for permeability and relief along the street.
A contemporary pavilion is located at the corner of Fullerton and Belle Isle marking the entrance as a visual gateway to the community.
Substantial design elements like bay windows, brick cladding and bold roof overhangs are proposed at the corners to create a sense of permanence and visually ground the development.
A mix of strong, bold materials, including lap siding and brick highlight the undulating three-storey townhome style building form. Proposed oversized glazing will allow for an abundance of natural light, while large roof overhangs will provide the benefit of passive solar design during the colder months. Upper units have private roof decks designed to prevent overlook and maintain privacy.
This project responds to the highly visible corner on Fullerton at Glenaire and Belle Isle, by providing an appropriately scaled urban edge to this main thoroughfare into the neighbourhood.
