The Pan American Games Athletes’ Village is a complex of six buildings in Toronto, Ontario, Canada built in 2015 to house 10,000 athletes and team officials. These buildings are now being used as mixed-use facilities, providing affordable housing for people of different ages and income levels, including student housing, and a new community centre. An interesting fact is that the village is built on the site of former railway and industrial lands, including the William Davies Company, at one time the world’s largest pork processing facility.

AGC Energy Select 36 low-emissivity glass was used in the construction of the buildings on Blocks 4 and 11 of the Athletes’ Village and Energy Select R42 was used for the buildings on Blocks 3 and 15. Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, a pre-eminent Canadian firm was engaged in the design of this mixed-use development. Allan Window Technologies (newly branded as BVGlazing Systems) provided the glass fabrication and installation for these stunning projects.
