1515 DOUGLAS STREET
MDI was part of the design team for the 1500 block of Douglas Street, opposite Victoria's city hall. The redevelopment project was comprised of two buildings that were constructed in separate phases. These buildings include new office space and a mix of ground-floor retail and commercial uses.
The project achieved LEED™ Platinum certification, and MDI's design work focused on extending the high-quality, sustainable design into the public realm and streetscape.
The public spaces are carefully detailed pedestrian amenities that support the development by bringing vitality and energy to the area. The streetscape is designed with a 'complete streets' approach and incorporates planting areas designed to support stormwater management of building and road runoff, large trees that contribute significantly to the downtown urban forest, and separation of pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles.
