The Regent Park Community Centre is part of the ambitious Regent Park revitalization project, and provides enhanced community amenities to the area. Designed to meet LEED® Gold standards, the facility was built to accommodate employment services and to be used for recreational and multi-use community facilities, with a community green roof for urban agriculture. The building is linked to the retrofitted Nelson Mandela Park Public School to create a vibrant and highly integrated community hub.

“Aquicon had an excellent project management system and skilled workmanship. The result exceeded our expectations, and led to the successful completion of this important community project.”

The community centre’s circulation is organized around a shared internal courtyard to form a ‘necklace’ of linked amenities. The design is intended to facilitate social connectivity, the provision of community services, and programming and resource efficiencies for the organization.
