As Rangeview Estates is comprised of several participating (the Rangeview Landowners Group Inc.) and non-participating landowners, it was essential to design the Master Plan in a manner that would allow each property to develop independently from one another, all while ensuring that the ultimate build-out of the entire community would maintain a cohesive structure, consistent visual aesthetic and secure the costs associated with development.
The approach taken considered both an interim and ultimate road network and servicing strategy that would allow each property to develop independently from one another and on their own timing.
This road network and servicing strategy had influence on the location of the new public streets, public parks and the size and configuration of the development blocks. When an individual property plans to develop, the associated costs of development will be built and ultimately contribute to realizing the vision set out in the Rangeview Development Master Plan.
The Rangeview Estates Development Master Plan envisions a vibrant, liveable, and complete residential and mixed-use community that provides 5,300 units and serves as a gateway for the entire Lakeview Waterfront Major Node from Lakeshore Road East to the shores of Lake Ontario.
The community will be planned as a compact, sustainable neighbourhood – offering a variety of housing typologies, local commercial opportunities, and walkable pedestrian-oriented greenspaces.
The Master Planning process was a collaborative integration of Bousfields’ five departments – Planning, Urban Design, Community Engagement, Graphic Design and Community Design – and was supported by numerous external consultants. The design of the Master Plan was led by our Urban Design team, and collectively, all disciplines worked together to produce a successful new waterfront community.
