Tonsley is designed for success.
All development at the Tonsley Innovation District is guided by the Tonsley Urban Design Guidelines. These guidelines set the style and form of the buildings including urban structure, density and mix, height and massing, materials, facade and street interface and resource efficiency.
Retrofit strategies will be developed to apply best practice in sustainable design principles to existing buildings with the intent to repurpose them into suitable new facilities and amenities.
The primary consideration in Tonsley’s development has been quality design promoting an inclusive environment for people and businesses.
Tonsley’s urban design and land zoning were developed specifically to accommodate social interaction, activities and events and a vibrant community.
The Tonsley Urban Design Protocol guides public and private developers through a set of broad urban design principles maintaining Tonsley’s unique characteristics.
The guidelines establish a benchmark so investors have certainty that quality will be maintained as well as peace-of-mind that their investment is protected.
