Preliminary Mass Model

May 14, 2009 at 4:25 pm 1 comment

Much like my counterpart, I was given the task to create a project that would help further my undergraduate project last semester. So, I chose to develop a massing model for Wellington Road and Bradely Avenue in London. (Click image to enlarge.)

Preliminary Mass Model

This massing model represents the current building heights, dimensions and site locations. The purpose of this “preliminary” model is to help aide in the construction of future intensification models that will be completed in part with my Capstone project, The Revitalization of Wellington Street Corridor. The focus of this model is at the intersection of Bradley Avenue and Wellington Street. This area will be further developed and analyzed in the Capstone project. This will help to show prospective investors and developers the advantage of intensification within an urban setting.

St. Stephens Park , Westervelt College, and White Oaks Mall will be redesigned for a stronger pedestrian connection. Currently, St. Stephens park is not connected to Wellington Street as there is a ditch that seperates it from the road. White Oaks has a large chunk of land availlable at the intersection to implement new infill projects and the design of an urban square. Several options will be developed to show people that there are many potential designs for this intersection.
