SvN is working with All Saints Anglican Church in Winnipeg to examine the potential of a new construction on its adjacent site to support the long term life of the Church, its four resident congregations and its community soup kitchen, Agape Table. All Saints Anglican Church sits on an important site at the corner of Broadway Ave. and Osborne Street in downtown Winnipeg. It is also a key participant in the West Broadway neighborhood. SvN is working with the Church to determine a development that will best suit the social and housing needs of the neighbourhood, and also support the long terms interest of the Church.
All Saints Anglican Church Feasibility Study
Housing is a core focus of our business. We design innovative and adaptable buildings and master plans that respond to the immediate and future housing needs of diverse communities and all levels of income. We have a history of initiating and realizing housing projects that fill critical gaps in the market, and that are sensitive and adaptable to evolving cultures and contexts.
We provide comprehensive support for approvals under the Planning Act that includes: the creation of clear, high quality documentation for amendments to official plans, zoning bylaws and building codes; producing planning applications and planning rationale reports; and representing our clients at Ontario Municipal Board hearings.
We provide feasibility planning, development advisory and approvals risk management for public and private clients. As an interdisciplinary team that contributes to the design and architecture of a project, we are able to identify risks in early design development and conceptual site layout stages. We help to shape and form the thinking on site layout and building design in a way that reduces and minimizes the amount of approvals required. We give our clients a comprehensive view of planning approval milestones within the project's life cycle, so they can anticipate the timing and resources required to support various approvals within the overall construction schedule.
We undertake site analysis studies, from site scale up to secondary plan scales. We work with developers and public agencies such as Build Toronto and Ontario Infrastructure and Lands Corporation to complete due diligence and Highest and Best Use Studies for their lands.
