Feasibility Studies: Planning & Urban Design

We are architects and planners.

We help developers evaluate the potential of sites in the GTA by conducting a site analysis and provide a short and concise report including the major planning considerations and an estimated GFA.

The reports are priced at a fixed rate based on the site type:

Infill Site 

A narrow, shallow lot in a simple context; a single low- or mid-rise building

Large

A wide or deep lot;
two mid-rise buildings, high-rise, hybrid mid- and high-rise

Master Plan

Development with new public realm elements e.g. streets, open spaces;
phased development;
multiple tall buildings

What’s in the report?

The report is a distilled analysis of the three main areas of consideration of the development potential:

  • Review of the relevant regulatory framework and planning policies governing the site;
  • Analysis of the relevant development applications in the area;
  • A building massing and the associated GFA yields, based on planning and design considerations.
What’s not in the report?

The report doesn’t include:

  • Floor plans
  • Unit mix
  • Parking layouts
  • Architectural expression
  • Rendered images

Which sites are eligible? 

The proposed fees apply for sites within the Greater Toronto Area. For sites located outside of the GTA, an additional fee is required.

What is the turnaround time?

The standard turnaround time is 10 Business days for infill and large sites and 15 days for a master-plan. A 15% rush fee will be applied to orders with a shorter turnaround time.

In what development phase is the report used?
The thoroughness of the report is suitable for the due-diligence phase. However, our clients have found it to be a powerful tool as early as the bidding phase since it provides the leverage you need.

We are already helping these city builders, and we would love to help you too.

 

We would love to hear from you (seriously, it will make our day!)
