Presentation: Citizen Led Approach to Sustainability

How does the Tower Renewal place-based citizen-led approach applied over a range of sustainability objectives compare with other approaches, specifically single focus initiatives and community based programming? As the description suggests, the Tower Renewal approach is likely more complex. The complexity has advantages and disadvantages. On balance, how does it compare with alternatives, is it worthwhile and under what circumstances? How does the Tower Renewal approach compare with other integrated design processes? The main goals are to provide improved energy efficiency and building performance, enhance the social fabric for residents of the buildings and drive economic development through the renewal of older high-rise residential apartment buildings and capture related benefits sites.
