Oakville Life Sciences and Technology Innovation District

Oakville Life Sciences & Technology Innovation District, Ontario, Canada

Oakville Green, adjacent to a brand new hospital 30 minutes east of Toronto, Canada will become North Oakville’s “Innovation District”, embodying a new kind of urbanity, where people work and live, where places are built for people not cars, where density and mixed use arrangements facilitate collaboration and creativity, and where healthy living and sustainable growth is in the DNA of the District. U3 Studio, a collaboration between U3 Advisors and Corneil Collaborative, is working with Oakville Green to realize the "Innovation District" vision.

Oakville Green will expand the new Oakville Hospital complex with a carefully balanced mix of uses that will create a density of people and ideas, a 24-7 level of activity, and a beautifully designed urban setting with canals, water features and a public square, a place for young and old to gather, hang out, go skating, see an outdoor concert, or celebrate a seasonal festivity. The district will become a center of innovation and collaboration with a state-of-the-art healthcare center for North Oakville. Institutions, businesses and start ups in healthcare, engineering, and information technology will be attracted to this unique urban setting and the opportunities it provides to collaborate, work, live and learn, in a synergistic, compact and creative environment.

Corneil Collaborative worked with Oakville Green Developments from 2013-2015 to develop the vision for the district and to build support in the Town and Halton Region governments.
