1.0 INTRODUCTION
This Design Brief has been prepared by Turner Fleischer
Architects on behalf of Kanata Entertainment Holdings Inc. and
PenEquity Realty Corporation. It is intended to outline urban
design objectives for the proposed development. The proposed
development will be the next phase of the Kanata Centrum
Shopping Centre – Block YYD. The development will take place
on 12.26 acres (4.96 ha) of the existing centre site. The proposed
development will front south along Kanata Avenue east of Main
Street and west of Lord Byng Way. The development proposes
Building A, a 29,807 sf (2,769 sm) mixed use building with
21,638 sf (2,010 sm) of it being ground floor retail and 8,169 sf
(759 sm) of it being second floor office. The ground floor will be
comprised of three retail tenants A, A1 and A2, with A1 proposing
to be a potential restaurant space with a proposed outdoor patio.
The building will be highly articulated using a variety of materials,
with ample amounts of glazing, varied roof lines, with elements
including canopies, awnings and decorative mouldings.
The remainder of the development will reconfigure the existing
parking lot and landscape areas. Parking areas will be split
onto smaller parking trees. Landscaping along the street front
will be intensified to create a visually attractive streetscape in
the absence of built form and to screen the parking. Landscaping

should also be used within the parking islands where possible.

3.0 BUILDING DESIGN
Building A will be designed to be visually attractive and user
friendly. It will be the first building in the Kanata Centrum Shopping
Centre to address the public street front of Kanata Avenue. The
amount of glazing to be used will help to emphasize this condition.
The design will be diverse, varied in building envelope, and
include architectural detailing. While corporate individuality is
important, unifying elements are equally important in order to tie
Proposed North Elevation A2-1
the development together as a whole by creating an overall design
theme. The building will incorporate similar window treatments
and varying planes of flat roofs with overlays and projections.
Architectural elements such as canopies, awnings,
a similar pallet of colour and materials will be used to tie the entire
building together. The facade will not be one long blank facade
in either height or length. The roof line will be varied to break up
Proposed South Elevation A2-1
the horizontal massing. Kanata Avenue will feature varied roof
lines to give the appearance of multiple tenants. The building will
be broken up vertically into a base, middle and top to reduce the
vertical massing. Different materials and details will contribute to
this. The base will be comprised of concrete block. Brick, metal
panel, glazing and spandrel glazing will be incorporated into the
building and will comprise the middle. Decorative metal cornices
of different heights will comprise the top. Glazing and spandrel
Proposed East Elevation A2-1
glazing will be featured on all four facades. Decorative wood
slats will adorn the second floor office elevation. Metal and fabric
canopies will be featured above the ground floor glazing. Entrances
will be emphasized by brick portals, canopies, awnings, signage
and varying roof lines. The Garbage room is located at the rear of
the building, will be internal and comprised of concrete block.
The loading area will also be at the rear of the building and be
screened with the concrete block.

have been designated as MC (Mixed Use Centre) Lands where
there could be potential for future development. The proximity to
the off ramp for Highway 417 creates easy access for vehicular
travel. The proximity to Residential areas to the north, south, east
and to the Transitway Station allows for easy access to pedestrian
activity. Pedestrian routes connect the entire Kanata Centrum
Shopping Centre through hard and soft landscaped walkways, as
well as public sidewalks along the north and south side of Kanata
Avenue. There is a dedicated bike lane along Kanata Avenue that
allows for access to alternative sustainable transportation.
