Supporting Canada’s Climate Resilience, Housing Affordability And Economic Recovery Through Deep Retrofit And Housing Renewal

The Tower Renewal Partnership has put together a quick and easy-to-read reference guide or “primer” to Tower Renewal including an introduction to high rise retrofits in Canada, a map showing the distribution of aging apartment units across Canada and the identification of opportunities and recommendations for moving forward with government action.

Recently, Graeme Stewart and Ya’el Santopinto were featured in a helpful article called “How to Renew Our Old Apartment Buildings“. The article showcases the Ken Soble Tower Transformation and also provides an additional introduction to the retroffiting process in Canada.
