SKYLINE (PORT MCNICOLL) DEVELOPMENT INC.
HICKS PARTNERS AND IAN S. MALCOLM ARCHITECTS
Port McNicoll, a former Canadian Pacific port, sits on Georgian Bay across from the entrance to the Trent-Severn Waterway in the Township of Tay. The design for this brownfield property reclaims its lost waterfront, and features vibrant new redevelopment, and nearly 11 kilometres of remediated shoreline including a diverse network of open space linked to broader regional systems by the Tay Shore Trail and Ganaraska Trail.
This mixed-use development master plan includes over 1,400 new homes, featuring a mix of housing types, 352,000 square feet of commercial, civic and cultural uses, 108,000 square feet of traditional neighbourhood conveniences, recreation-oriented shops and services, specialty retail shops, cafes, restaurants, and entertainment uses and approximately 244,000 square feet of office, civic and cultural uses throughout Harbour Town and at key neighbourhood centres throughout Port McNicoll.
MHBC assisted in updating the original concept master plans and has worked with the municipality to refine a more current and realistic vision that could be implemented based on site conditions and current policy. MHBC is now in the process of bringing forward site specific applications based on this Council endorsed Master Plan.
