Rosemont: Smart Green & Vibrant
Rosemont: Smart, Green & Vibrant was a leading development plan to foster environmental, social and economic sustainability in the City of Regina. The plan drew on pioneering ideas in urban planning, urban and architectural design and environmental technology from around the globe as the inspiration for a comprehensive plan for a world class eco-district in Regina. As a flagship of eco development in Canada, the plan aimed to highlight Regina’s important role as the capital of Canada’s fastest growing province and its commitment to development in a sustainable way. The holistic perspective used in the Rosemont: Smart, Green & Vibrant proposal ensured that a wide and diverse range of factors, including resource efficient buildings, a comprehensive eco-cycle, social development and integration, economic development, an advanced low carbon transport system and the area’s location, close to nature and the city centre, were considered while planning, a liveable, human-oriented development. The innovation and rejuvenation of Rosemont was planned to serve as a keystone to Regina’s optimism, growth, and dynamism.
