The revitalization of Bayview Village takes this space back to its 1960s roots as an open-air shopping centre – one that’s directly connected to its community. DIALOG and HPA began work on the well-loved Bayview Village in 2016 with the master plan and conceptual visioning for the revitalization of the site. The overall proposed mixed-use development is approximately 1.2M sq ft that is subdivided into two major zones on the site. Building off DIALOG’s master plan for the site, our team worked with HPA to design 400,000 sq ft of open air retail for Bayview Village’s The Northern Zone.

The design combines mid- and high-rise residential, including two six-storey retail / residential buildings.
The project includes a 19-storey residential tower with retail spaces at grade, and a one-storey retail addition to the existing shopping centre.
A car-free promenade connects the buildings and engages the public realm with cafes, top-tier restaurants, one-of-a-kind designer shops, and galleries.
The undulating low-rise residential suites above create a sense of flow and movement, animating the promenade and helping to foster a 24-hour pedestrian presence within the local community.
A great retail experience is one that’s built on making connections: connecting people with more than just their shopping experiences. Bayview Village is designed to let people mingle, explore, and enjoy.
