Aquattro Residential Development, Colwood

Back to ProjectsBack to projects page

Located on the foreshore of Esquimalt Lagoon, this project has complex geotechnical, hydrological, and historic and archaeological factors that contribute to a unique landscape expression. The project incorporates multifamily residential landscapes, parkland, and public open space surrounding the design of nearly one kilometer of salmon stream and associated habitat plantings. A comprehensive public pathway system approximately three kilometers in length connects the residential sites with the outstanding natural features in the area. This project is a prime example of our firm's dedication to managing growth in an ecologically sensitive manner.
