Highway 7 and Warden Seniors Community

Markham, Canada | 2013-Current

The Highway 7 and Warden Seniors Community is designed to provide choice between multiple types of adult lifestyles, including life lease, seniors homes, and stacked townhouses. The project consists of two blocks: four 8 storey condominiums to the south, responding to the high-rise River Walk development across Highway 7; and six 3.5 storey townhouses on the north, respecting the low character of the adjacent neighborhood. The site plan takes the nearby St. Justin Martyr Church into consideration with a large open plaza welcoming visitors to the south block and ensuring visibility. The entire west boundary of the site is set back to allow a tree-shaded walkway connecting this plaza, Highway 7, and the church with the park located north of the site.
