Rebecca Street refers to the property formally known as Surrey Park, located at Dorval Drive and Rebecca Street in the town of Oakville, Ontario. Canada Lands Company acquired the Rebecca Street property from the Department of National Defence (DND) in June 2010.
This 16.2-acre (6.58 hectare) property is situated on the north-west corner of Dorval Dr. and Rebecca St., not far from scenic Lake Ontario.
The lands have been designated as Low Density Residential, Special Policy Area in the Town’s Official Plan, “Livable Oakville”. To learn more about the land use designation for the Rebecca Street site please visit the Town of Oakville’s official website.
The Rebecca Street redevelopment is Canada’s first Pre-Certified LEED for Neighborhood Development Plan, under the first non-pilot LEED ND rating system. The plan proposes 62 single detached lots and approximately 62 condominium townhome units, along with a 1.2 acre central park. The homes will be LEED for Homes certified.
Approval of the plan of subdivision and rezoning applications was awarded in spring 2012, and LEED ND certification was achieved in spring 2013. Site servicing has been completed and new home sales and construction by Fernbrook Homes is ongoing.

Oakville has posted the application and the supporting documentation on its municipal web site.

The development proposal consists of 66 single family detached lots and approximately 59 condominium townhouse units. A 1 acre central public park area that is surrounded with public streets will be highly visible and accessible to the neighbourhood residents. An efficient network of streets and sidewalks will integrate the site with the surrounding community and encourage walking.
Canada Lands Company has registered the project under the LEED ND (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighbourhood Development) program and is proposing to achieve certification of the development. Various components of the plan have been guided by these LEED ND standards in order to achieve a more sustainable development as contemplated by public planning objectives and current land use policies.
Some examples of the LEED ND sustainable components that are proposed to be implemented include: pedestrian friendly streetscapes and sidewalks on both sides of streets to encourage walking; reduced street light energy consumption; recycled content in infrastructure; reduced heat island effects and reduced water and energy use in the houses. Additional information on the LEED ND program can be found at the Canadian Green Building Council website.
