If you haven’t taken some time to check out the Affinity Campus in City Park you really need to. It’s one of the best examples of an adaptive reuse that I have ever seen and a great illustration of what suburban infill can look like. It brings about 400 people into City Park (staggered so as not to create too much traffic) which helps the local neighbourhood economy. It also is striving to be a good neighbour in that it allowed City Park to keep it’s ice skating rink in the back of building (with a new warming hut to boot). As nice as the building is on the outside, check out these photos of the interior. Spectacular.
Kudos to be Affinity Credit Union and it’s architect for the project, Kindrachuk Agrey Architecture.
