Josh is a Planner with experience managing diverse projects, including institutional and private sector master plans, development approvals, local and regional community engagement, transit station area planning, and infrastructure and public realm master planning. This experience allows him to bring a strategic approach to navigating complex master planning processes, providing clear recommendations that allow land owners to realize the full potential of their assets, while balancing competing priorities and finding solutions to achieve required approvals and implementation. Josh is currently managing the development approvals for SickKids’ new Patient Support Centre, in conjunction with broader master planning for SickKids downtown Toronto campus. Josh recently completed a 50 year campus master plan for Simon Fraser University’s iconic Burnaby Campus in BC, and is now continuing to work in Burnaby supporting a new master plan and development approvals for the 20 acre former Saputo factory site at the Sperling SkyTrain station. He is also supporting master planning and leading approvals for the redevelopment of the former Christie Cookie factory at Park Lawn and Lake Shore in Toronto, which will introduce a new GO Transit station, TTC improvements, and broad mix of residential, retail and employment uses, repositioning the site as a vibrant, transit-oriented community node for Toronto’s Humber Bay Shores neighbourhood.
