SFU Community Trust wins planning award for UniverCity

Simon Fraser University Community Trust has won a 2011 Award for Planning Excellence in the neighbourhood planning category for its work overseeing the development of UniverCity on Burnaby Mountain.

The award is presented by the Canadian Institute of Planners which cited UniverCity as an example of best practices in sustainable community development.

“The plan takes a triple-bottom-line approach to sustainability, which puts forward innovative green building and engineering practices, expansive environmental protection areas, multi-modal transportation opportunities, and necessary community facilities,” said the awards committee.
