NBLC was retained by the University of Toronto alongside Brook McIlroy Inc. to develop a planning study for the Huron Sussex Neighbourhood with the objective of suggesting a long term road map for the enhancement and development of the community that will help to guide the efficient use of the real estate assets of the University.
NBLC’s role was to test the viability of the planning analysis from an economic perspective and to suggest strategies toward implementation. To achieve this, NBLC examined the nature of the existing housing stock, the requirements and demand profile of the tenant groups, the ability of the private market to service the future needs to the University and the economic feasibility of introducing new housing into the community.
The project was awarded by the Ontario Professional Planner’s Institute with an Excellence in Planning Award under the category of Research & New Directions in 2014.
