Here are the communities you should register for this year:

Doon South

Coming to Kitchener’s Doon South in early 2019 are new and popular townhome floorplans in back-to-back, traditional and split-level designs. These will offer 1,300 to 1,900 sq. ft. of space, two to three- bedrooms, and attached one or two-car garages. The Doon South area combines natural elements such as environmentally-protected woodlands, greenspaces, and parkland interwoven with a network of walking trails, easy 401 access and close proximity to many other amenities. The new Groh Public School, which covers Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8, is within walking distance, making Doon South an ideal location for young families and commuters. Pricing will start in the high $300,000s.
