The proposal conforms to 6 stories above grade as outlined in the Mt. Pleasant Community Plan.
The building design parti plays between the strong street wall of Main Street and the playful elements (ie. glass elevator) of the proposed second floor Childcare facility to the south and east.
The massing of the south elevation dissolves as it turns the corner to 4th Avenue, creating a dynamic and evocative series of forms that increases sunlight penetration to the Childcare and corner public plaza while creating a smaller cadence of form that transitions to the quieter 4th avenue neighbourhood.
The light colored panelized consistency of the form of pixilated boxes is accented with the sprinkled threats of colored vertical louvers.
