Canary District caught the eyes of the world as it transitioned from a home for athletes participating in the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games into a celebration of life and nature, family and community.
The HIDI Group provided mechanical, electrical, communications, A/V and security design for this $514 million project. Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, the development is roughly 1 million ft² and is comprised of residential units, recreational and fitness facilities, pools, food services, polyclinic (temporary building), market housing, affordable rental housing and George Brown College housing. Subsequent to the Games, the area has been converted to legacy mode, including 7 buildings made up of 300 affordable housing suites, 1,000 condominium suites, 220 student residence suites, large retail spaces, the YMCA and a historical building.
Completion Date: Games Mode 2014 / Legacy 2016
