IC Savings, Dundas Street West, Toronto
Weston Consulting has been involved in the development of the new head office for the Italian Canadian Savings and Credit Union at 5300 Dundas Street West. Weston has facilitated the planning process to bring this project to its final stages of approval. IC Savings is the first to implement the newly redesigned City of Toronto streetscape along Dundas Street West. The streetscape features a redesigned bus stop, new bike lane standards, revised tree planting standards and new finished surface designs including patterened concrete and asphalt. As the first redevelopment along Dundas Street West, this project will set the streetscape standard for future developments.
The new head office also meets the Tier 2 City of Toronto Green Standards in addition to being a LEED-certified development. The project incorporates several green elements including permeable paving and high-albedo surface materials, a green roof, tree planting and the preservation of existing trees on site. Weston is particularly proud to have been instrumental in the delivery of this landmark project.
