Stretching the length of a full city block, Portfolio will have a significant impression on the residential and commercial fabric of downtown Calgary. Public (street) and private (terraces) interface along the 13th Avenue SW Greenway will be a primary design focus, along with public plazas, interior courtyards for tenant use, and roof top amenity space. With the first phase of Portfolio designed and built, by others, the primary goal for the streetscape was to enhance and maintain its current identity.
Additionally, the proposed design enhances the pedestrian experience by creating spaces that are comfortable to linger in. To achieve this, pockets of site furniture and street trees are provided that relate to the social spaces of the podium.
