1693 Fort is located on the western border of the Jubilee Large Urban Village and near the Stadacona Large Urban Village, in an urban residential area.
The South Jubilee area includes a diverse mix of commercial and residential uses. Located in close proximity to a variety of restaurants, shops, job centres and health services, the proposed development will provide a 15 minute city lifestyle for future residents. Nearby Jubilee Village offers a wide range of retail, commercial businesses and health services.
Neighbouring the site is a mix of multi-family residential buildings, characterized by an informal relationship to Fort Street. The mix includes range of building styles, composed mainly of stucco and painted wood cladding, with some brick accents.
The building expression is both contemporary and dignified. The main palette of the building is light toned and neutral, comprised of light and medium grey metal and textured cementitious panels, charcoal window frames and architectural concrete.
The building materials have been selected to be durable, finely textured and of a subtle colouration, so that the building will compliment rather than compete with the surrounding mix of building styles.
While the materials palette is restrained, the expression of the building has a
subtle playfulness, which took inspiration from a bookcase.
The façades at levels two through five are designed so that each storey reads as a horizontal ‘shelf’. Vertically proportioned bedroom windows are arrayed on these ‘shelves’ in a randomized pattern; these elements are set within a field of textured profiled metal panels conceived as the paper edges of a book, turned backwards on the shelf. These patterned lengths are bracketed by the living room window bays, which project out from the main façade and tie the storeys visually together. One feature bay extends out at an angle, marking the main building entrance below on Fort Street.
1693 Fort Street offers wide range of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) offerings such as:
