Rivers District Streetscape Guidelines
Important measures to uphold the integrity of our placemaking practice
Formalized design principles to guide future streetscaping in The C+E.
Shaping The C+E’s public realm… and upping its curb appeal
Streetscapes are an integral aspect of east Victoria Park’s public spaces and the overall C+E experience. The Rivers District Streetscape Guidelines consolidate design principles articulated in the Rivers District Master Plan. We are formalizing these principles to support a consistent look and feel for streetscaping as development progresses in The C+E, which in turn elevates the neighbourhood’s power of place.
Signalling entry into someplace special
Visual consistency reinforces sense of place, facilitates wayfinding, and adds value for our residential development and retail partners.
Incentivizing private investment
By elevating neighbourhood character and curb appeal, streetscape design consistency is a strong real estate value proposition.
Elevating the appeal for pedestrians
Consistent, well-planned public realms encourage pedestrian movement—shopping, walking to work, attending entertainment events.
