Site: 321 Courtland Ave., E

Plans for “The Metz”:
Auburn Developments is proposing a compact, mixed-use redevelopment of the former Schneider’s site. The development will be a true mixed-use addition to the neighbourhood, including a range of low, mid and high-rise housing options; street-fronting retail spaces; and opportunities for a diversity of space for different employment uses. The non-residential uses will include opportunities for retaining and repurposing some of the existing buildings on the site to create distinct, vibrant commercial spaces. Public streets will extend onto the site in a fashion that connects the existing neighbourhood fabric and breaks up the large site into smaller development blocks. These new urban streets will set the basis for a tree-lined public realm accommodating walking and cycling through the site. Complementing the public streets, a publicly-accessible series of parks and plazas that run north-south through the development will be a public realm focal point for the development and the surrounding neighbourhood. Collectively the development will be tied together with sustainable approaches and green infrastructure for site and building design.
Re-imagine the space
