55 Franklin

Multi - Unit Residential

Element5’s third much needed mass timber affordable housing solution. The four-building complex served as an opportunity for the
team to explore innovative strategies to deliver affordable housing in the
Region and test each design variation against their sustainability impact. As
the first of four buildings in the series, 55 Franklin is designed with conventional light wood frame exterior and interior wall panels and CLT floor and
roof slabs. Other sustainable features include photovoltaic solar panels,
rainwater collection for greywater uses and a high-performance envelope.
