The Regent Park Community Centre is part of the ambitious Regent Park revitalization project, and will provide enhanced community amenities to the area. Designed to target LEED Gold, the facility will accommodate employment services, recreational and multi-use community facilities, and a community green roof to be used for urban agriculture. The building is linked to the retrofitted Nelson Mandela Park Public School to create a vibrant and highly integrated community hub. Circulation is organized around a shared internal courtyard, to form a ‘necklace’ of linked amenities. The design is intended to facilitate social connectivity; provision of community services; and programming and resource efficiencies.
