Facts

  • Regent Park is Canada's oldest and largest public housing project. Devised in the mid 1930s to replaced the notorious slum area of South Cabbagetown, it was begun in 1946 immediately after World War II.
  • Regent Park is divided into North and South sections by Dundas Street East. Regent Park North was completed first (1949) and consists of low-rise apartments and townhouses.
  • Regent Park South won the Massey Medal for architecture in 1961.
  • The buildings are oriented to the points of the compass, in contrast with the surrounding street grid.
  • Each building utilizes a “skip-stop” elevator system which allows units to have two aspects and through-ventilation.
