The Orbit is Toronto-based architect Partisans’ vision for a next generation community. Located in the town of Innisfil in Ontario, The Orbit will create a cohesive center for Innisfil that will gravitate and grow around a new regional transit link and cultural center.
Located approximately 40 miles north of Toronto, The Orbit will be shaped by mobility, transit links, innovative streets and infrastructure, streetscapes, social interaction, health and wellness, a digital and connected community with an economy based on critical thinking, technology, new tech agriculture, advanced manufacturing, and artificial intelligence. The goal is create a community where small town and rural lifestyles co-exist with the benefits of urban living.
The transit link, which marks phase one of the project, will connect Innisfil with Toronto and has recently been unveiled in more detail, showing residential towers, retail, and office space occupying the immediate area around the transit link. Additionally, a new bus route will be developed to allow residents to easily get to and from main hubs and the link. The station, and the entire master plan in general, comprises green spaces and landscaping to create a park-like feel and exist harmoniously with nature.
The planned project has the capacity to absorb 40 million sf of newly built modern community. The regional transit link and the cultural center are slated to be built over the next four years.
