  • Graeme Stewart - Spacing
    to areas of the city that hadn t been thought of in that way before We re unlike any city region on the continent our suburbs that were built right after the war are predominantly made up of high rises For every single family home built in the 1960s two apartment units were built in the suburbs Stewart initially approached the Tower Renewal Project from the point of view of retrofits that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by improving insulation and upgrading other structural elements However he soon realized that the buildings could be rezoned and reconfigured to allow for a hitherto unimagined diversity of recreational entrepreneurial and social service activities while the land around the buildings often a sterile flat expanse of grass could be turned into vital community spaces The happy accident of high rise developments is that they have remarkably high population densities And so we have this pretty unique scenario where you have lots of people and lots of unprogrammed open space and there s the potential to have that village atmosphere that Jane Jacobs was after Stewart says The other key ingredient is that these buildings were mostly developed for middle income empty nesters or young professional couples and today they ve really become the landing pads for new Canadians We have 2 000 high rises in the region and they re filled with newcomers The multiculturalism that Toronto is famous for is facilitated by these buildings Having explored similar developments in numerous other places Stewart has come to the conclusion that the quantity of these buildings is what makes Toronto globally unique We ve had academics from Italy and the U K come here to study them he says Toronto is on the map for Modernism On the other hand he says these buildings don t have the social service supports or the opportunity for entrepreneurship Now the majority of people who live in these buildings don t own cars they walk And the number of young families living in these buildings is higher than the city average which they were never planned for Graeme is a brilliant person and a hard worker says former Toronto mayor David Miller now president and CEO of World Wildlife Fund Canada Graeme took an idea from some University of Toronto engineers that was about energy worked on it through his Master s thesis and took it to being about energy and neighbourhoods and design and placed it in an international context And when he d done that he came and presented it in my office He d done this brilliant work showing what was possible and the layer we added was the connection that many of these towers are in neighbourhoods that are a priority for City investment Today the Tower Renewal Project has short and long term goals First of all there are the quick fixes which can be implemented while policies and zoning bylaws are being redesigned Already Toronto Public Health and the United Way
