Phase 1C is the continuation of CAMH’s innovative, multi-phased campus transformation into an open, inviting and accessible hospital and hospital campus. It also promotes and celebrates, through the design, the collaborative integration of clinical treatment, education and research with the shared goal of enhancing patient recovery.

Phase 1C introduces two new buildings to the CAMH campus, B1 and D1, along with the necessary utility interfaces. An open, inviting and accessible building, B1 is positioned as a gateway to the village. The first of its kind for mental health in Canada, it will both respond to high complexity patient/client needs and serve as a research and innovation hub, seamlessly integrating teaching, learning treatment and care. A residential scaled inpatient care building on a two-storey podium, D1 further enhances the vibrant urban fabric of the surrounding neighbourhood. Its houses High Acuity Inpatient Units, Emergency Services, Acute Addictions Services, Access CAMH, Patient Recovery Programming, Outreach Services, a Partial Hospital Program as well as clinical administrative functions.

B1 and D1 and their associated landscape elements are integrated into a network of boulevards, paths, parks and gardens intricately woven into nine city blocks over a 27-acres site, offering varied services and amenities in complement with the existing urban fabric. Pedestrian scaled retail storefronts generate animation at street level and ensure continuing vitality of the street life along Queen Street. A residential-scaled, regularized yet rhythmic articulation of patient bedrooms resonates with the existing urban fabric of the neighbourhood. These features, along with enhanced parkland and landscaped outdoor spaces, collectively reinforce CAMH’s integration within the community.

Phase 1C: Master Planning (with Agnew Peckham) and Planning, Design and Compliance Services (with KPMB Architects). Stantec are the Architects of Record.
