Corvette Landing is a 12-storey mixed-use development designed to transition the low-density township of Esquimalt, which is adjacent to Victoria, to a more urban context. This Passive House project is constructed as a panelized prefabricated mass timber building, combining a low-carbon footprint with expedited construction and resulting in high performing desirable solutions.

Corvette Landing is a permutation of Intelligent City’s Platforms-for-Life system, a generative mixed-use urban housing system.

The process is systematically driven by digital design, adaptation, and collaboration to produce affordable integrated communities.
