I must have missed this: the 2006 winners of Best Practices in Affordable Housing, according to CMHC (they do so much more than insure).
You can find the list here.
Mole Hill Housing Project
Hotson Bakker Boniface Haden Architects/S.R. McEwan Architect
Vancouver, British Columbia
This project is a redevelopment and restoration of 27 City of Vancouver-owned houses in the heart of Vancouver’s West End which provides units of non-market housing for low-income singles, families, seniors and long-time residents of the block. The project protected and restored the home’s interior and exterior heritage features and incorporated green building techniques and energy efficient features. In addition, one new building was constructed, three daycares, community gardens and greenways, as well as the Dr. Peter Centre for persons with HIV/AIDS.
Thanks for the link from Mike Drescher, a design student at the San Francisco Institute of Architecture. He was actually wondering what I thought of this Toronto winner as a possible example of Eco-Density infill:
