Sustainability and The Station Project
Sustainability is generally characterized as activity that, minimally, does not harm, and in the best cases, repairs environmental and/or social harm that has been caused in the past, while still working at a financial level.
During the renovations, CGC committed to showcasing as many ‘green’ innovations as possible. Accomplishments included:
- Installing edible landscaping and landscaping using native plantings throughout the property,
- installing an Electric Vehicle charging station,
- setting up bicycle parking for onsite businesses as well as residential tenants,
- reusing building materials where possible and striving to achieve the goal of zero-waste.
CGC is committed to maintaining the upstairs living suites as affordable (non-subsidized) downtown living. No existing tenants were displaced due to the renovations.
From a financial perspective, the building generates enough revenue to be financially sustainable, with a small percentage of the annual income made available to support CGC’s operations.
