Project Summary

Our team led the planning, design, and development management of this green industrial park that will be the first built out, profitable, unsubsidized EIP in North America. The Master Plan included illustrative site plan, conceptual subdivision plan, conceptual servicing plan, land use plan, and development statistics. We led two integrated design workshops to develop park form and character, as well as infrastructure pre-design and worked with the local municipality to develop Land Use Bylaw amendments and design guidelines that coincide with the eco-industrial objectives of the EIP. We provided regulatory liaison and developed the terms of reference for integrated green infrastructure design, and managed civil engineering, ensuring the final designs maximized EIN opportunities and met sustainability objectives. We marketed the finished lots to buyers with a novel sales process to ensure completed buildings would be green and local businesses had equal access to this high demand industrial property. www.taiganova.com
