Urban Strategies prepared the master plan, development applications, and LEED ND certification for a 17-hectare property in Old Oakville formerly used for military housing and now owned by Canada Lands Company CLC Limited. The Rebecca Street Redevelopment is Canada’s first Pre-Certified LEED for Neighborhood Development Plan, under the first non-pilot LEED ND rating system. The plan proposes a mix of 124 detached homes and townhouses centred on a new neighbourhood park. Most of the homes will be LEED for Homes certified. Tree-lined streets and townhouses addressing Dorval Drive and Rebecca Street will integrate the neighbourhood with its surroundings. Approval of the plan of subdivision and rezoning applications was awarded in spring 2012, and LEED ND certification was achieved in spring 2013. The project is currently under development.
