  • Respect, enhance or adapt to the architectural expression of a building or be compatible with its form and materials, according to the architectural value of the building;
  • Consider its effects on the site and on neighbouring structures so as to preserve or enhance the character of the site and its environment or be compatible with them, according to their value.

    A construction project must:

  • Consider the character of the neighbouring structures, including the types of buildings, size, siting, cladding, shape of the roofs, cornices, openings, levels of access and projections;
  • Respect, enhance or adapt to the features of the site and the overall character of the environment or be compatible with its forms and materials, according to the value and homogeneity of the environment;
  • Contribute to the coherence of the block, corner, street or environment, according to its placement, visibility and significance in the City.

    In cases where buildings in the area do not share common characteristics, or in cases where the character of an area presents no architectural or urban interest compatible with the character of neighbouring areas, the project must help mitigate the irregularities of the area by making architectural reference to the characteristics of buildings with the most architectural or urban interest and the common characteristics of neighbouring areas, in order to restore the quality of the ensemble.

6.2.3 Landscaping

  • Borough by-laws must set criteria to require that landscaping projects affecting a fence, grille, wall, or cluster or row of trees be carried out in such a way as to ensure their integration into the building and the environment when these initiatives are undertaken on a site that is part of a large site of institutional character or establish rules or criteria to regulate such initiatives undertaken on the front yard of a building located in an area of exceptional value identified in Map 2.6.1 entitled “Built Heritage” or in the front yard of a building of heritage interest noted on the lists presented in Part II of the Master Plan.
