Holabird & Root designed a new 140,000 sq. ft. Amico Luxury Condominiums Development on a site just north of Downtown Halton Hills, Ontario. The project nestled within a low-density residential neighborhood consisting of single-family homes.
The proposed three-phase development includes a layer of commercial program anchoring the larger of the two housing developments.
Each of the housing developments stands five-stories tall, with the majority of the building mass concentrated toward the center of the site and step-downs to building sections of 3 and 4 stories.
A solid stone base with glass storefront not only allows commercial activity to have a strong presence on the street, but also initiates a traditional architectural response to the historic downtown businesses nearby.
