At the end of the 1970s and in to the early 1980s there was a company called Hab-Com that is responsible for some of the city's most interesting housing projects. One of their goals was to create dwellings that felt like single family housing, but a medium densities. Two of their major developments are Cathcart Mews in Lower Town and Springfield Mews in Lindenlea. The later project will be featured in a subsequent post.
Below is everything I have for Cathcart Mews:
The "Mews" houses (plans A and B) are located on an enchanting and private laneway tucked in off Cathcart Street.
These stacked townhouse plans are quite unique with three interlocking plans forming a module that is repeated. Each has a ground level entry. The lower unit has 3 bedrooms, a basement and a yard. The two upper units were designed with an open concept loft bedroom, but later options were added to include an enclosed bedroom and even a 2 bedroom layout.
