Title: Social And Environmental Sustainability In Waterfront Redevelopment: A Case Study Of Inspiration Lakeview
Author: Martino, Alexander Anthony
Identifier: MESMP02802
Abstract: This paper is a case study of the Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan in Port Credit, Mississauga. This paper speaks to the history of urban waterfronts and examines the
evolution of urban waterfront (re)development in urban port cities from previously industrial eras to now modern-day planning. This paper is divided into sections focusing on social and environmental sustainability measures that are identified in the Master Plan. Social sustainability is analyzed in terms of housing and built form, employment, the notion of complete communities and public health, as well as transit. Environmental sustainability indicators focus on greenspace, stormwater management and waste management. This paper analyzes how social and environmental sustainability is accounted for and critiques the measures identified in the Master Plan to evaluate if what is being presented is adequate or if more robust measures should be implemented.
