  • Description The Mount Pleasant Station lands were transformed from a formerly barren land surrounded by an commuter railway line to a vibrant village. The mixed-use live/works (commercial/ residential units) of Mount Pleasant Village are designed as part of the community center to provide space and street exposure for a variety of personal and professional services as well as shops, cafes and restaurants. This typology is also designed to contribute to the local economy as it employs 60-100 people.

The village square is encircled by civic buildings and live / work main street units: a unique freehold building typology with street level commercial spaces and two-storey apartment living above.

In Mount Pleasant Village, the design for the village main street is evolved from a typical or traditional configuration in that it allows for full access, enclosed lay-by parking, and a thoughtfully designed and well lit loggia to shelter shoppers and commuters.
