City of Hamilton’s Landscape Architect Dave Zimmer

Ancaster, Ontario

Ancaster is the third oldest community in Ontario. The local BIA (Business Improvement Association) is improving the heritage vision and image of its town with emphasis on creating a ‘pedestrian predominant’ streetscape. Given the age and character of the area Unilock suggested products that would be appropriate.  The initial meeting narrowed down some of the choice to Copthorne however the Aesthetics Committee required a larger visual in order to make its decision. A mock up was created in front of the Old Mill Hotel the next day, in three different colors and different laying patterns.  The site meeting concluded that the three colors used together in the herringbone pattern would be most fitting. As construction began the storeowners were most excited to see this beautiful product enhancing their streetscape!
