“Home for a holistic, community-based care model that breaks down barriers”

Montgomery Sisam Architects and Hilditch Architect have been collaborating on the George Street Revitalization since February 2015, successfully completing Stages One and Amended Stage One of the project. The incredibly complex and ambitious redevelopment will transform an existing men’s emergency shelter and series of derelict heritage properties in one of the City’s most neglected neighbourhoods into a new “Centre of Excellence” that will support a dynamic range of housing, programs and services to meet the unique and complex needs of homeless, vulnerable and elderly individuals in the community.

The program includes 378 long-term care beds, 130 transitional living beds, 100 emergency shelter beds, 21 affordable housing units, and a community service hub. The design scheme creates a safe, inviting and vibrant place that reinstates the scale and rhythm of the greater neighbourhood. Multiple entrances, new pathways, strong indoor-outdoor connections, dedicated landscaped areas, usable and flexible outdoor spaces all work to de-institutionalize George street, while the restoration of heritage-designated properties revive the vernacular that defines the community’s rich urban history.

Our team is now translating this design into comprehensive PSOS documents that will continue to support the realization of this innovative initiative in social, economic, and environmental revitalization. Producing the Output Specification is by far the largest and most critical component of the PDC assignment. An accurate and concise translation of the City’s vision for the GSR will create a set of comprehensive documents that will support the delivery of an exceptional building.
