With Toronto constantly growing, there’s more and more need for sustainable design in new construction projects in the city. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system used around the world to signify the sustainability of buildings. They aim to transform the architecture and construction industries by pushing for the creation of high-performing, healthy green buildings to produce sustainable communities in Canada.
RBC WaterPark Place not only has an amazing view of the lake, but is also a LEED Core and Shell Platinum certified building featuring a huge 7,500 sq. foot green rooftop to give the city a breath of fresh air. Inside, CO2 sensors keep the air clean and the building taps into the lake to keep it cool inside. Efficient light and water fixtures also help significantly reduce the building’s environmental footprint and it has almost 400 bike racks for the two-wheeled commuter.
The Rostie Group, situated inside RBC WaterPark Place, is proud to be part of a project of this scale and we’re excited to see what the future holds for the city with more construction projects in Toronto taking the same route as buildings such as ours.
