225 Davisville Landscape Revitalization

Janet Rosenberg & Studio

Tronto, ON

In a strategic effort to enhance the desirability of a large rental apartment tower at 225 Davisville Avenue in Toronto, Greenrock Property Management Ltd. sought out Janet Rosenberg & Studio to revitalize the landscape area over the underground parking. The landscape work coincided with a re-waterproofing of the parking garage slab. The landscape design needed to improve the aesthetics and functional uses of the space, as well as properly showcase the unique sculpture created by the owner, Al Green, who also founded the Al Green Sculpture School and Studio. Important sculptural works are carefully and strategically displayed throughout the landscape for public enjoyment and engagement. Janet Rosenberg & Studio collaborated with Halsall Associates to develop details, including water features and planting beds, which give this green roof space the feeling of a parkland sculpture garden. Unlock Series 3000 pavers in Black Granite and Ice Grey in 300 x 600 x 100mm were used throughout the landscape to provide a unified paving strategy. The studio developed the master plan concept for the projects, and executed phases from schematic design through design development, construction documents and contract administration.
