Habitat 2.0 was commissioned by Westbank and Allied REIT. It will comprise 725,000 square feet with over 500 one to three bedroom apartments. The apartments will be above the ground level in order to access natural light and make use of natural heat and lighting. The apartments will also have access to private terraces. What is not used for apartments will be used for retail and commercial use at the base of the structure.
The materials for building the project have yet to be finalized, but with this already ecofriendly lookout of green space, we hope that Bjarke Ingels will keep their new project ecofriendly.
