“In Markham Street Village, the way those front yards of former residences have been made into wide sidewalks – marvelous for window shopping, for sitting around in... This is not usual in most cities today.”

REVISED PROPOSAL:
REFINED DISTRICT ENERGY STRATEGY

Mirvish Village will be a complete community, exploring a wide range of integrated solutions to meet sustainability goals. These will include an efficient and resilient energy system, sustainable alternatives for a pedestrian and transit oriented development, forward-thinking options promoting reduced car dependency and urban agriculture initiatives.

The revised proposal maintains Mirvish Village’s commitment to district energy, and has advanced and refined the details of this component of the development. A centralized heating and cooling plant incorporates a combined heat and power unit, transferring energy between individual buildings. The system is being designed and constructed so that it can expand and serve other buildings in the area with low cost, reliable sustainable energy, enhancing energy resilience for the broader area. By using efficient, innovative technologies, the system also contributes to reduced carbon emissions.

LEED’s Platinum ND standard is our goal, but we’ll go further to conserve the embedded energy in the Markham Street houses, design-in green roofs and build in a state-of-the-art district heating, cooling and electrical generation system for energy resiliency.
