Design that respects people and planet
Choosing North Harbour means choosing a community that has been designed from the ground up to embrace sustainability-conscious design. This holistic perspective is woven into every aspect of the community, delivering tangible benefits to residents. North Harbour is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable to address climate change, reduce waste and prioritize local businesses while fostering human connection.
Building for the Long Term
To build an economically sustainable community, we focus on the short- and long-term growth of the community while upholding Concert’s environmental and social sustainability goals. By creating local jobs and championing local businesses to operate in the community, we focus on creating a three-pillar approach that can support itself for years to come.
A Sustainably Minded Community
- Sustainable Design Starts from the Ground Up
The entire North Harbour community will be raised to protect against potential future sea level rise.
- Strict Architectural and Construction Certifications
Phase 1 is designed to achieve LEED Gold, STEP 3 & 4 of the BC Energy Step Code (ESC), as well as Fitwel certification. For residents, that means you will enjoy the benefits of a high-efficiency, low-maintenance home without sacrificing comfort.
- A Comfortable and Sustainable Lifestyle
Designed for social and physical activities, North Harbour will reflect the region’s identity and natural attractions. Lively gathering places create a community where you can shop locally, eat well and enjoy a premier North Shore lifestyle.
- Responsible Stewardship of Our Watersheds
North Harbour will be one of the first developments in BC to receive Salmon-Safe certification. This demonstrates Concert’s environmental stewardship through minimizing the impacts of development on sensitive aquatic and upland resources and enhancing salmon habitat.
- Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
Enjoy living in a pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly master-planned community with easy access to public transit and car-sharing networks. North Harbour also includes extensive bicycle parking with bike wash stations and maintenance rooms. And select resident parking stalls come equipped with outlets for charging electric vehicles.
- Connected to Clean Energy
North Harbour is connected to the Lonsdale Energy Corporation utility, an award-winning district clean energy system.
- Building with Nature
Extensive landscaping throughout the community provides a plethora of benefits. From edible gardens, to trees and plants that provide shade, to pleasing water features and green roofs, there is a natural approach to every aspect of North Harbour.
- Making Environmental Choices Easier
Buildings include smart-sorting recycling lounges for easy on-site composting and recycling.
Concert is doing our part to secure a stable future for all Canadians with a commitment to sustainability. We recognize our role in finding solutions to the many issues that communities face, today and in the future.
