Riverside Park West

As a follow up to my last post, now I will look at Riverside Park West.

Campeau built similar plans to those in Riverside Park East in the area, but there are some new designs as well - some of which are quite modern (c. 1962):





Riverside Park East

The area around Riverside Drive and Walkley Road has a cluster of distinct neighbourhoods that are a part of Riverside Park. This posting will focus on the North-Eastern section of the area, and in particular the houses built by Campeau in the early 1960s (c. 1961-1964). This period of designs by Campeau includes some striking mid-century modern houses. 

In 1961 Campeau released a brand new series of plans, and in particular I will focus on these designs. The same plans were also built in parts of Queensway Terrace. One of the most striking changes from their 1950s designs is that the houses were no longer full brick. 


Below is a selection of plans and present-day images of the houses in this area. Most plans had two exterior options, and I have picked only one to display in this posting.
