The Proposal At A Glance
Learn about our exciting plans for 5 Capri Road.
On-site today is a 24-storey purpose-built rental building (Capri Towers) constructed in the early 1970s, with surface and underground parking. The southern portion of the site, beyond the surface parking area and before the neighbouring school field, consists of a large area of vacant space. There are a number of opportunities to create additional housing and city-building opportunities to serve both existing residents and the broader community.
Proposal at a glance
Improvements at Capri Towers
Currently, the building has a party room on the ground floor and a small play structure on the southern part of the surface parking lot. The redevelopment proposal will include adding new additional indoor amenity space to the building as well as new and improved outdoor amenity spaces.
Improving the pedestrian experience
The proposal includes a comprehensive landscape plan that will improve the overall site design and function. New walkways will link the new and existing buildings to the new public road, outdoor amenity spaces, public park, and provide connections through the site. Proposed features, including a community garden and a fitness circuit, will support health and wellness in the community.
Introducing new community assets
The proposal includes a two-storey daycare to support new and growing families. In addition, a bike café retail concept has also been introduced. This hybrid bike shop and café, in addition to the project’s plentiful bike parking and multiple Bike Share stations, will help support a culture of cycling in the area.
