Examples of Quality Infill
CASE STUDY 1: Garneau front-to-back duplex
Located in the neighbourhood of Garneau, this three storey front-to-back duplex on a 33-foot frontage provides a unique option for family-oriented living without a traditional basement suite. From the rear view the main door of the three-bedroom principal residence can be found on the side of the house, while the unit spans from the basement to the third floor. Resembling an L-shape the principal residence extends over the secondary suite in the front to fully occupy the second and third floors. The basement and main floor are partitioned off and fully enclosed to allow for a generously sized four-bedroom suite that appeals to a wide variety of demographics. This allows the principal residence to have unimpeded access to the fully fenced backyard and detached garage, while providing ample sunlight and living space for the secondary suite found in the front on both the basement and main floor.
Case Study 2: Crestwood Row house
This three unit, two storey, street oriented row house is located in Crestwood.

Among the three units there is up to 1264 square feet with up to 632 square feet in developable basement area. The outdoor private amenity space of each unit consists of a deck, a patio space and green space that is professionally landscaped and designed.
