  21. 21. Potential South Entrance Options:Option 1 – Ben Nobleman Park PavilionConsists of a pavilion type entrance located at the north west corner of Ben Nobleman Park.  The concept is to have a structure that is very open; almost transparent.  It has continuous glazing on three sides permitting visibility from the street to the park, and from the park to the street.  It serves as an entrance to the park, through a loggia in front of the entrance, and permits an easy connection to the existing east to west cross path in the park.  The structure is located as far northwest as possible to limit impacts to the Park and Community Orchard as much as possible.

  26. 26. Potential South Entrance Options:Option 2 – Ben Nobleman Park Green RoofConsists of a green roof structure designed so as to appear to grow out of the park’s topography.  It  follows the pavilion concept in providing an entrance to the park and visibility to and from the park. The green roof’s sloped structure will appear to be continuous with the park, but controls will be put in place to limit access onto the roof structure.

  31. 31. Potential South Entrance Options:Option 2a – Ben Nobleman Park Green Roof – Facing EverdenOption 2a consists of the green roof structure, reoriented to open to the west at Everden Road, rather than to the east.  This design eliminates the logia and entrance to the park in favour of a more compact footprint, and less impact to the park.  It still provides the amenities of a south side entrance; the cost benefits of a more economical entrance; all the while  integrating  into the park to  be  much  less noticeable from within the park.

  34. 34. Potential South Entrance Options:Option 2b – Ben Nobleman Park Glass BoxOption 2b consists of a simple rectangular‐volume entrance located at the north west corner of Ben Nobleman Park.The concept is to have a structure that is very open; almost transparent.  It has continuous glazing on four sides permittingvisibility from the street to the park, and from the park to the street.  The mullions recall the arboreal nature of the park.The structure is located as far north west as possible to avoid impacting the existing Community Orchard as much as possible.Entry is directly from the Everden Road sidewalk located on the west side of the building as shown in the rendering below.

  39. 39. Potential South Entrance Options:Option 3 – Division 13 Police Station Parking LotOption 3 consists of a south side entrance – similar in design and material to the east and west entrances – within the Division 13 Police Station parking lot.  The entrance is located further south than the park side options due to the presence of utilities running on the south of Eglinton Avenue that must be avoided.  The concept is similar to the North East Entrance in that it provides an entrance structure that can be easily incorporated into any future development of the site.

  44. 44. Potential South Entrance Options:Option 4 – Division 13 Police Station Glass BoxConsists of a Glass Box design for the south entrance.  The minimal sized entrance can be easily removed in the future so as to offer greater flexibility in design for future developments on the site – while still maintaining an entrance.
