This two-phase, five-storey mixed-use development comprises 84 new dwelling units as well as community uses on the ground floor. Located at the intersection of Bridgeport Road and Lancaster Street in Kitchener, Ontario, this development is set on the site of the former St. Paul’s Lutheran Church building, from which the design of the new buildings draws inspiration to pay homage to one of the Region’s many examples of mid-century modern worship spaces. EDGE Architects worked closely with both St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and Parents for Community Living, who will each occupy space on the ground floor to serve their respective organizations. The development, including both interior and exterior spaces, is designed to meet strict accessibility and energy efficiency guidelines as set out by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation National Co-Investment Fund.
