Context - Laneways & Urban Squares “Wherever lively and popular parts of cities are found the small outnumber the large.” Jane Jacobs “In the city centre of Perth, laneways could offer inhabitants safe havens away from vehicles and shelter from the sea breezes which buffet the main streets for most of the year.” Perth Laneways Strategy 2008
Context analysis sample from “Designing a midblock space in Perth CBD” This page is a piece of context analysis from a project in Perth, Australia. The map highlights laneways and open spaces near the study site. Creating usable laneway and open spaces in the study site could connect with a larger network of these spaces. Simple graphics and clear layout effectively highlight the analysis.
Design - Layout
1:500 Some of the spaces in the block are too large to be comfortable. Getting the laneway and open space proportions right is necessary to create a network of diverse spaces permeating the block. Redeveloped structures and sleeve buildings reshape spaces.

Design iteration from â€œDesigning a midblock space in Perth CBDâ€? This page explores possible building footprints in a design intervention creating laneway spaces. Maps show new buildings in red. Images show possible future building outlines, and how the proportions of public space may be affected. A consistent colour scheme creates flow between images. Maps are clear and effective with simple colours and measurements.
Design - Massing Massing concepts demonstrate different effects on the public space below.
A mix of building heights on either side of the network optimizes enclosure and shade.
Design iteration from â€œDesigning a midblock space in Perth CBDâ€? This page explores appropriate massing and the implications of mass on streets and open spaces. A clear, consistent colour scheme creates flow between drawings and throughout the project.
(RE)ENVISIONED A Transit Oriented Development study for Ottawaâ€™s Blair Station
It is essential that in order for the City of Ottawa to grow and intensify over the next generation in accordance with the Provincial Policy Statement and the Cityâ€™s own stated goals and objectives, it is critical that planning authorities take a leading role to foster conditions that are conducive to this particular type and pattern of JURZWK 7KLV LV SDUWLFXODUO\ WUXH LQ WKH LGHQWLĂ€HG DUHDV including the BSA.
=RQLQJ%\ODZ 7KH2WWDZD&LW\&RXQFLODGRSWHG=RQLQJ%\ODZ 250, which controls all permitted land uses throughout the municipality in 2008. The area is currently zoned consistent with the OP intentions for the area. This is a VLJQLĂ€FDQW DGYDQWDJH DV WKH GHYHORSPHQW RI WKH VLWH moves forward. The following section discusses the most relevant zoning codes in more detail. For a complete account of zoning designations within the study area, VHH $SSHQGL[ =RQLQJ LQ WKH VWXG\ DUHD LV GLVSOD\HG in Map 3-3 on the following page. Appendix 16 shows calculations for the limits of development within current zoning provisions.
GENERAL MIXED USE Two areas on the northwest part of the site are zoned General Mixed Use. This zone provides further opportunity for combining uses in large buildings. It attempts to limit commercial uses to single use buildings or in groups to ensure the development of mixed-use areas along arterial roads.
RESIDENTIAL FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, FOURTH, AND FIFTH DENSITY The maximum allowances for residential on the site range from single detached/ GXSOH[Ă€UVWGHQVLW\]RQH WRPLGKLJKULVHĂ€IWKGHQVLW\]RQH LQWKHQRUWKZHVW corner with a maximum building height of 22 metres. These zones are on the fringes of the site and all abut or include existing residential areas. There is no VLJQLĂ€FDQWURRPIRUGHYHORSPHQWLQDQ\RIWKHUHVLGHQWLDO]RQHV
MIXED USE CENTRE The areas immediately adjacent to the existing transit station are zoned Mixed Use Centre.

There are VSHFLĂ€FKHLJKWDQG)ORRU6SDFH,QGH[)6, SURYLVLRQVIRU these areas, which exceed the general zoning provisions (see Appendix 3) emphasizing the desire to intensify and increase density in this area. The provisions for this zone are designed to be transit supportive as they are consistent with higher-level policies encouraging transit supportive uses and form.

34 BLAIR STATION (RE)ENVISIONED
Cover page, zoning analysis and mapping from â€œBlair Reinvisioned: A Transit-Oriented Development Study for Ottawaâ€™s Blair Stationâ€? Cover page (on left) communicates one of the major issues in the project, the pedestrian bridge crossing a major highway. This writing sample (on right) is part of the Policy Analysis Chapter of a TOD report for a future Ottawa LRT station. Layout is simple, clear and effective. Map was created in Adobe Photoshop with data from the City of Ottawa website.
Promotional images for “Blair Reinvisioned: A Transit-Oriented Development Study for Ottawa’s Blair Station” These images were taken for the final report and presentation of the TOD project. A high quality visuals compliment and complete an excellent report.

Lot metrics were analysed in ArcGIS and tabulated in Excel. Maps were created using base data in ArcGIS and finished in Adobe Photoshop.

Connectivity analysis from “A pilot study for Sprawl Repair potential in Kingston, Ontario” Two sample pages from the Analysis Chapter of my Master’s report. By comparing objective measures of connectivity (street centreline length and intersection density), this analysis gives an understanding of which study areas require more intervention. Connectivity measures were analysed in ArcGIS and tabulated in Excel. Maps were created using base data in ArcGIS and finished in Adobe Photoshop.

Transportation and Public Health continued There are many cities of different sizes across North America that are exemplary including Sherbrooke, other cities in Quebec, and wealthy boroughs around Montreal and Quebec City. At the same time, no city has everything right. People know that Montreal is a good place to cycle. The bike share program (BIXI) is successful and has bikes available in many places. Seven thousand people a day use the cycle tracks, including one downtown which is similar to the one on Laurier Avenue in Ottawa. These facilities send the message that bikes are welcome. When asked about Kingston as a place to walk or Community session, right to left: Councillor Jim Neill; cycle, Dr. Morency responded that Kingston is a Graham Lodge; Dr. Dave Gordon, Queen’s University beautiful place, and like Montreal there are measures that could be taken to do better. Walking could be improved at intersections, for example at Barrack Street at the KROCK Centre. The high traffic volume near LaSalle Secondary School is dangerous. There is a nice bulb at Brock and Wellington streets. The crossing at 800 Princess Street is good, especially for children, older adults, and people with disabilities. However, when Dr. Morency was just up the road at Giant Tiger for 30 seconds, two people crossed the road there. A longer island near 800 Princess Street may be warranted.
Mark VanBuren, City of Kingston; Dr. Patricia Collins, Queen’s University; Daniel Shipp, City of Kingston
“Cycle tracks account for a 28 percent lower rate of cycling injuries”
Dr. Morency recommends: -Velo Quebec and its guidelines -Cycle tracks. They account for a 28 percent lower rate of cycling injuries, and they provide incentive for people to cycle. - Safe crosswalks including those that have added safety features such as trees and medians -Traffic calming measures. More speed bumps are better, and area wide applications are best. -Parking that does not go to the edge of intersections. -A health supporting transportation system – stop increasing road capacity and increase public transit instead!
