Recent projects

Nepean Point Redevelopment

Our winning concept for the Nepean Point Redevelopment, entitled Big River Landscape, was approved by the National Capital Commission’s (NCC) Board of Directors on November 23, 2017. Throughout the course of the project from schematic design to construction, JRS has led an extensive consultant team to maintain the original design intent and ambitions while aligning with complex budget and scope updates.

The design strengthens the Park’s relationship with the Ottawa River by providing universal accessibility, enhanced views, compelling interpretation, a diverse plant palette, and a pedestrian bridge to connect to Major’s Hill Park and beyond.

Senator Marian Maloney Park

Senator Marian Maloney Park is a neighbourhood park located in Etobicoke at 40 Caven Street. The approximately 2-acre park was built through Development Charges by The Remington Group in coordination with the City of Toronto, who will own and maintain the park going forward. The park was officially named through a public survey in 2018 organized by the City of Toronto.

As the lead consultant on the project, JRS provided services from Schematic Design through Construction Documents and Contract Administration, working with a multidisciplinary team of consultants.

Integration and connections with the adjacent Park Towers development and the surrounding neighbourhood inspired the strong geometry of the park. A central walk, along a linear water feature, creates quadrants of space which include a lawn amphitheatre, a bosque of flowering trees in granular, a splash and play zone for children, and a more organic zone of natural grasses and boardwalks. A boulevard around the perimeter of the park was strategically created in order to form a lacy green tree canopy along the streetscape.

Senator Marian Maloney Park is an aesthetically beautiful and functional urban park space that offers a variety of opportunities for programmed activities and more flexible community uses throughout the year.
