DateNovember 5, 2014
MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO – IBI Group’s GO Erindale Parking Structure, Terminal and Pedestrian Bridge, has won the Mississauga Urban Design (MUD) Award of Merit for Community Scale and Innovation.
As part of a design-build team with Kenaidan Contracting and RJC, IBI designed the parking structure and supervised construction. It’s located between Burnthamthorpe Road and Rathburn Road, close to the Mississauga downtown core. The GO Erindale station is a major transit hub connecting regional and municipal transit systems to all communities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the Golden Horseshoe.
The parking structure has six levels above-grade and can hold up to 1500 vehicles. It’s surrounded by safe public plazas and open spaces for pedestrian and cyclists, enhanced with landscaped gardens, covered walkways, and seating area.
The structure achieved LEED Silver status.
The MUD jurors described it as “a new direction in the design of parking structures as visible contributors to city building … and earns an award of merit as it sets a design standard for future similar developments to build upon.”
