Sustainability is Built In

gallery LOFT towns is a low-rise urban infill project that thoroughly  incorporates sustainability principles into its design:

Site Location

  • Infill site uses existing urban infrastructure
  • Close to College, Dundas and Spadina streetcar lines and University subway line
  • Along St George / Beverley bicycle lane
  • Walking distance to Baldwin Village and Kensington Market for local shopping

Building Design

  • Ground-related homes with front doors and landscaped yards on city boulevard
  • Large windows and shading overhangs along south-facing facades achieve passive solar heating in winter and shading in summer adding to comfort and reducing energy use (subject to encroachment agreement with city)
  • Deciduous trees planted along south side provide summer shade while allowing winter sun to penetrate to building façade
  • Careful use of north-facing windows provides natural lighting while minimizing heat loss
  • Through units (with operable windows on north and south)  provide cross ventilation to minimize need for mechanical air conditioning
  • Open floorplans increase the amount of natural daylight inside
  • Outdoor space (units 2-8):  south-facing front yards, rear patios or terraces, upper terraces with large overhang to provide shading from summer sun
  • Outdoor lighting is directed and shielded to prevent light pollution
  • Innovative parking stackers minimize space required by vehicles
  • Secure residents’ bicycle parking located on stacker
  • Visitor bicycle parking located on Cecil Street

Energy Conservation

  • Insulation levels (R-22 walls, R-40 roof) reduce energy loads
  • ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator) in each home maximizes fresh air and provide improved indoor air quality with minimal energy loss
  • Windows argon-filled and double glazed with low-e coating
  • Individual high-efficiency gas furnace(s)
  • Energy star appliances (except stove)

Water Conservation

  • Native species in landscaping reduces water use

  • Rainwater harvesting:  south side drains into ground to recharge water table, north side is captured in Atlantis cistern to recharge water table

Indoor Air Quality

  • Natural wood and tile flooring reduce potential for dust and molds
  • Millwork cabinets from formaldehyde-free plywood interior boxes.  Finishes are furniture quality UV-cured, environmentally-friendly low HAPS finishes
