Esquimalt Town Square
Located in the heart of Esquimalt next to town hall, Esquimalt Town Square is designed to create a new public gathering space for the community. The redeveloped site will feature residential condos, a new public library, cafe, restaurant, and office space over a level of underground parking. Comprised of four buildings designed by the highly regarded firm, D’ambrosio architecture, new public amenities include a public plaza/surface parking lot designed to accomodate the weekly community market, small park with retained historic Garry oaks, Garden courtyard, and public artwalk.
Esquimalt Town Square is poised to breathe new life into Esquimalts downtown. An ecologically sensitive design developed by Murdoch de Greeff Inc the site plan features raised rain planters connected to the buildings, a rain garden in the surface parking lot to capture and treat surface runoff, and onstreet rain gardens to treat storm water from the adjacent roadways.
Murdoch de Greeff Inc developed the landscape and stormwater management plans for this high density mixed-use urban development. As part of the Murdoch de Greeff team, Terence Radford developed concept plans and contract documents.
