In early 2013, The City of Saskatoon put out a call for proposals for a mixed-use development surrounding Willowgrove Square. aodbt was engaged by the local developer to design a concept for the site that responds to the guidelines set out by the City while providing a unique development for the Willowgrove neighbourhood. Both apartment and town-house style units are incorporated on the site, with a number of outdoor amenity spaces including a playground and a roof-top patio. The mix of traditional and modern elements in the design allow for a building that responds to the Urban Village concept while also integrating contemporary elements that reflect modern design. In order to further differentiate within the current market and integrate sustainability, the development is designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification.
