Levittown is located at the southern end of the Circle Line on the MRT. Levittown is a primarily coastal community that is comprised of a series of districts, each with a unique but modern feel. Levittown's districts are connected by a robust transit system managed by the Levittown Transit Authority, a private company that works within Levittown's municipal borders. Levittown was founded on the principal of walkable, human-scaled urban development and its buildings and street layout are designed to be enjoyed from the ground level. Some notable landmarks are the Levittown Museum of Natural History, the Founder's Home (Managed by the Levittown Historical Society) and the Levittown Market Hall.

Background

Levittown was originally planned as a suburban community modeled after the suburb of Levittown in the United States. Narasmar

Districts

Main Street

The Main Street District runs roughly North/South with the MRT Station at one end and the Museum of Natural History at the other end. Main street is mainly comprised of tower structures and is the least pedestrian-friendly district. At the northern end around the MRT Station is the Town Hall (originally a brick building, renovated into a tower structure). The LTA Tramway Office and future Eastern Terminus of the Tram line to Astoria are located just North of the MRT station. Main street is elevated at this end, and beneath the street is the Main-Street pedway which connects the MRT station with Code's Mill Hotel and the Tramway offices.

Across from the MRT station is Code's Mill Hotel. Behind Code's Mill hotel and accessible from the parking garage level is the Code's Mill Treehouse suites. Beneath Code's Mill is the Levittown Housing Authority's subsidized housing units.

Moving South is the Atrium on Main office building, the Levittown Hospital and Rescue Centre, Drummond Tower, The Overlook Building and the Levittown Museum of Natural History.

The district is served by the MRT station, the LTA Ferry Terminal, The LTA Monorail and a Shuttle to the Seaside Ferry Terminal.

Seaside

The District of Seaside is a roughly crescent shape, west-facing gated residential community. The District is made up almost exclusively of detached "Cottages" ranging from one-bedroom to five-bedroom, with each cottage being given a unique name and unique architectural details. Some common elements of each cottage include a car port, screen porch, 2nd floor entertaining space, and some sort of ocean view. Some of the homes feature a tower to make the most of the westward view and a few also feature docks on Founder's river. The homes all face Seaside beach, a public beach that is managed by the Seaside Homeowners Association.

In addition to the owner's cottages, Seaside features three beach pavilions. The Northern Pavilion is also the most westerly and serves as a great spot for residents to enjoy the sunset. The Eastern Pavilion is home to the only business in Seaside District, the "Beaches and Cream" canteen and eatery. It specializes in Ice Cream and light sandwiches, and features a seaside dining area. The Southern Pavilion acts as the LTA Ferry terminal dock, and is home to the Seaside Intracity Ferry Terminal served by WMB Other buildings of note include the Seaside LTA Monorail station (designed to integrate seamlessly with the Seaside cottages), the Seaside Gatehouse, and the Seaside Ferry Terminal Shuttle loop.

Seaside Beach: Although Seaside District is not open to public automobile traffic, the beach is still accessible to the general public via the LTA Monorail and LTA Ferry. It can also be accessed on foot. There are lounge chairs spread throughout the beach, maintained by the Seaside Home Owner's Association, but available to anyone to use.

Westport

Westport District is a lakeside mixed-use community located on the southernmost point of Levittown. The district relies mainly on visitors to drive it's economy, and offers the largest and most diverse collection of restaurants in Levittown. The district is comprised of a series of contemporary-style structures clustered around a 3/4 circle dock. Each building has unique aspects, but there are many shared characteristics. Each building features some sort of restaurant or eatery on the first floor, and a residential apartment on the floors above. Residents enter at the rear of the building, and restaurant patrons enter from the dock. Each apartment features a private dock, balcony, wood-burning stove and rooftop terrace.

Notable structures include the "Swimming with the Fishes Cafe" which is a standalone restaurant featuring an outdoor eating area and the only deep-water serviced slips in Levittown. Additionally, The Westport LTA Monorail station is set back from the district itself to minimize noise and emphasize the isolated, water-focused aspect of the community. It is accessible via a winding, well-lit footpath. Just off of the main dock there is a lit mooring buoy, and on the western end of the dock is the LTA Ferry launch with direct service to the LTA Ferry Terminal in the Main Street District.

Stewart Park


Stewart Park district is the most dense of Levittown's districts, located just west of Main Street. Stewart Park is comprised of a cluster of medium-density commercial buildings

Buildings

Building Info
Town Hall Originally built as a one-story brick building, the Levittown Town Hall was the second structure built in Levittown after the creation of Casa De La Narasmar. The building has been extensively renovated and now features a transition from brick to multi-coloured glass facade as the building rises. The interior was designed to pay homage to the wooded nature of the district with a variety of wood types and leaf-green interior walls. The first floor contains public administrative counters and restrooms, the second floor is a conference room, the third floor contains municipal department offices, and the fourth floor is the mayoral office. The structure is unique in Levittown in that it is built on a series of stone pillars allowing it to rise above the woods below. The Town Hall fronts onto the Levittown Founder's Fountain and Founder's Plaza. The Intercity Ferry Shuttle stops right along side the plaza
Levittown Station The Levittown Station incorporates the original C47 MRT station and expands on the design to include access to the LTA Monorail, LTA Ferry terminal, Future FredRail station and the LTA Tramway. Exiting the original station, residents and guests enter the Main Concourse, with soaring ceilings that rise up above and over the original station, showcasing a Canada Flag and a large MRT logo. From the concourse there is street level access to Main Street, a stairwell down to the Tramway Offices and Levittown Pedway, a Lounge and ticket office for the LTA Monorail, an access tunnel and ticket office for the LTA Ferry Terminal, and a set of public restrooms.
LTA Tramway Offices The LTA Tramway Offices are actually located under a hill behind the Levittown Station, and are incorporated into the Levittown Tram Station. The Tramway office includes a ticket counter, staff areas, lost and found and access to the Levittown Pedway.
Levittown Pedway The Pedway is located under the Town Hall building and continues under Main street before connecting with the Code's Mill Parking garage. The Pedway is a pedestrian-only shopping path with some limited seating and a view of the Town Hall undergrowth. Due to its location underground it is lit 24/7. At the base of the northern access stairwell is the Mole and Myrtle Publican House. To the right of that is Cinema 42, a boutique cinema offering. Attached to Cinima 42 is the "Reel Eats" farm to table restaurant.
LTA Ferry Terminal The LTA Ferry Terminal can only be accessed by Ferry or by access tunnel from the Levittown Station. If they are unable to use a CardPass on the ferry itself, passengers can buy tickets at the LTA Ferry Terminal Kiosk located in the Levittown Station councourse before riding a moving walkway through the tunnel and out to the Ferry docks. There are two permanent docks housing four auto-nav ferries. The Terminal is open-air and has no public restrooms. Riders must access the restrooms located in the Levittown Station.

Georgia's Cove Sunset Villas The Georgia's Cove Sunset Villas were built during the 1970s as Levittown's first serious foray into tourism. The Villas were built into the side of the hill below Main street and are constructed of thick concrete which passively captures solar heat during the day and radiates that heat energy at night when temperatures drop. Although originally built as a hotel, the Villas were purchased by the Georgia's Cove resort and now serve as a timeshare offering for that resort. Villa owners have access to all of the amenities of the Georgia's Cove Resort Hotel, including valet parking at the conference centre. There are seven units total, with four being set up as hotel-style suites and three that have been customized by their owners and range in size from one to 4 bedrooms.
Georgia's Cove Resort Georgia's Cove resort is a mid-rise tower structure located just beside Levittown Public Beach. It is directly connected to the Georgia's Cove conference centre and is served by its own LTA Monorail station and Ferry dock.
