ALEXANDRA COURT

Alexandra Court has 547 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment units located across four residential buildings (a mix of five- and six-storey woodframe). A 12,000-square foot clubhouse with outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool are among the amenities for residents.

Care was taken to mitigate the scale of the buildings by varying their height, providing different rooflines and stepping the buildings back from the street at both ends of each building. Large breaks are also provided between each building. Access up to the courtyard and down to the parkade are accommodated at these four mid-points.

The creation of a large open courtyard was a priority of this project. Maintaining a strong perimeter with the buildings allowed us to open up an expansive space within the block, allowing for a sprawling single level amenity buildings and extensive open space.
