Aurora Glen by Lindvest brings bright, airy and unique townhomes

Lindvest is having another incredibly productive year doing what it does best: Building homes. Five of the company’s projects are actively under or nearing construction all across the GTA: Aurora, Brampton, Markham, Newcastle, and Toronto. From detached homes, elegant townhomes, to highrise condos, Lindvest occupied close to 500 homes in 2018, and is on pace to inviting continue this trend into 2019. All of these incredible accomplishments are complemented by several exciting new projects.

Aurora Glen

The most recent release of the Aurora Glen townhomes is one not to be missed. The third phase of this beautifully planned community in Aurora is now open. Located just north of Leslie St. and Wellington, you are invited to tour the model home and visit the sales office.

These townhomes are uniquely bright and airy. Floor to ceiling windows in nearly every room cast volumes of natural light, emphasizing tall ceilings and spacious interiors. A serene escape just north of the city, this dazzling home is the ideal opportunity to entertain your friends and family in a beautiful lush community filled with trees.

Now open, the fully decorated model townhome is a must see. Designed and decorated by Toronto interior design firm Rebecca Hay Designs, whose specialty is creating high-end family friendly interiors that are distinguished yet inviting, the model townhome is classic, contemporary, and a true entertainer’s dream. Rebecca and her team added custom details such as upgraded crown moldings and coffered ceilings to elevate sophistication.

Having a little fun with colour adds to the family friendly vibe. Bright bold colours in the family room add personality to the otherwise classic construction of the home. A soft palette in the kitchen with leathered black granite countertops and marble backsplash adds texture and class. Matte black and soft greys contrast with warm brass lighting and thoughtful details throughout the open concept space.

Rich black traditional style interior doors have sleek matte black handles to match. The hardwood flooring throughout the main floor balances with natural marble mosaic tiles in the entry and powder room. A true gem, the powder room is your hidden delight, presenting playful wallpaper paired with a sleek black faucet. It’s a fun little surprise waiting around the corner to inspire guests.

The master bedroom celebrates style and elegance with its wallpapered tray ceiling. A bright and spacious corner bedroom leads into a large ensuite complete with a soaker tub, curbless glass shower, and double vanity. The design team raised the wow factor by adding gorgeous large format tiles to all the walls. Beautiful brass touches elevate the design by including brass faucets and fixtures by Moen. A stunning modern chandelier hangs above the tub radiating extra sparkle.

As with all previous phases in this community, these townhomes are equipped with smart thermostats, intelligent locks and LED lighting.

These townhomes need to be experienced to be appreciated. There are 29 units nearing completion, several of which are already move-in ready, launching a truly unique buying opportunity.

Aurora & Newmarket: Close to Toronto, but far from the hustle of city life

Aurora & Newmarket: Close to Toronto, but far from the hustle of city life

With some homebuyers priced out of the downtown Toronto core, not to mention limited availability, many are heading to the suburbs in search of more affordable homes.

Those looking north – to Aurora and Newmarket – may indeed find savings. They may also get more bang for their buck, in the way of larger properties and lots for those prices.

But it isn’t all about paying less in Aurora and Newmarket, where proximity to nature, including the Oak Ridges Moraine, and expanding highway and transit infrastructure, make living here and working in Toronto an appealing option.

Aurora

Located in York Region, Aurora is an increasingly popular and affluent town. According to the 2016 Census, the population here grew 4.2 per cent from 2011 to 55,445 – but is forecast to grow to more than 69,000 by 2020.

With an average household income of more than $155,000, Aurora is one of the wealthiest towns, not just in the province, but in all of Canada.

What’s causing such growth? An increasingly diverse economy and business expansion, which drive housing demand and rising prices.

Through it all, Aurora has been able to maintain a small-town feel. In 2016, it was ranked as one of the Top 25 places to live in Canada.

Still, the October 2018 municipal election brought change to Aurora. Tom Mrakas unseated incumbent Geoff Dawe, running on a platform centred around housing and growth. He had said he wants to ensure better land use planning decisions are made through the Local Appeals Body and by implementing a Design Review Panel. He also intends to uphold the Official Plan and continue to oppose golf course redevelopment and improve municipal infrastructure.

Newmarket

Located just seven kms north of Aurora, with a population of more than 85,000, Newmarket, too, gets lots of love.

In a recent survey conducted by the Town, 95 per cent of residents said they are satisfied with Newmarket as a place to live, and 80 per cent are satisfied with overall service levels.

“The feedback received from the Community Survey results support Newmarket’s reputation as one of the Best Places to Live in Canada, according to MoneySense Magazine,” says Mayor John Taylor.

Like neighbouring Aurora, Newmarket was ranked in the top 25 communities in Canada in 2016 and 14th among best small cities. In 2017, Amazon Canada rated it as number 20 of the top 100 most romantic cities in Canada.

Also, as was the case with Aurora, the elections last year brought change to Newmarket, when then-Mayor Tony Van Bynen decided not to seek re-election. John Taylor took over, making the economy, business growth, community building and expanding new housing developments his top priorities.

GTA mayoral elections – who won and where they stand on housing

GTA mayoral elections – who won and where they stand on housing

John Tory

Housing policy, affordability and supply were among the key issues in many municipalities leading up to the Oct. 22 Ontario elections.

The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) and others did their best to alert voters to the issues, and to gage candidates on how well they understood them.

Homes Publishing did its own assessment of a selection of GTA municipalities in the context of housing development.

But now that the results are in (well, most of them), let’s take a look how some of the notable races shook down, and the various policies of the newly elected mayors, with help from BILD.

Housing and growth: Proposes to protect Aurora’s Stable Neighbourhoods from “monster home” infill, by using planning tools such as Interim Control By-laws. Also wants to ensure better land use planning decisions are made through the Local Appeals Body and by implementing a Design Review Panel. He intends to uphold the Official Plan and continue to oppose golf course redevelopment. Improving municipal infrastructure, through complete streets, is also a priority.
Taxes: Proposes to reduce the tax levy.

 

BRAMPTON

Patrick Brown (new)
Housing: Proposes to create a streamlined, more efficient approvals process at City Hall for new home construction and renovations across all levels of affordability. Proposes to develop a housing strategy that encourages neighbourhood-sensitive development of rooming houses, basement apartments and in-law suites.

Marianne Meed Ward (New)
Growth: Opposes overdevelopment of Burlington and will seek to control growth by reducing provisions in the Official Plan, as well as accept growth only when infrastructure can handle it.
Housing: Intends to secure affordable housing with inclusionary zoning and require new development to provide a percentage of senior-friendly units. Intends to set greenspace per population targets within reasonable walking distance through prioritizing parkland over cash-in-lieu for major new developments.

 

CALEDON

Allan Thompson
Housing and growth: Supports housing and growth management initiatives that will maintain the characteristics of Caledon’s communities and create opportunities for residents and future residents of live, work and retire.

Rick Bonnette
Housing: Proposes to continue to manage difficult conversations around intensification and growth the Province has mandated and the development residents are seeing.

MISSISSAUGA

Bonnie Crombie
Housing: Intends to institute an Inclusionary Zoning policy to incentivize the building of new, affordable units. Proposes to form partnerships with leaders in affordable housing to get new buildings in the ground on a faster pace.
Environment: Proposes to work with staff to bolster Green building standards that will improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and improve urban forest canopy.

Housing: Proposes to work with the Province and the Region to increase the rental housing supply, maintain the existing rental supply and add affordable ownership homes. Allowing secondary suites in existing homes will also create new housing once new by-laws that monitor the neighbourhoods are in place.

Growth: Proposes to preserve heritage that is integrated with future development. Integrating heritage built form into new developments as well as establishing Heritage Conservation Districts and site plan bylaws in heritage areas in town are identified a must.
Development: Within the first 100 days, hopes to assemble a meeting of commercial-industrial landowners to get everyone on the same page, about the 404 corridor and the servicing for the area going forward. Believes that these underserviced and underutilized lands represent about $1 billion in new tax assessment for Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Emphasis on beautiful architecture and quality-crafted homes

Lindvest is a Toronto-based real estate development group with deep roots, spanning six decades in the award-winning, highly-respected H&R family of companies. Their signature emphasis on beautiful architecture and quality-crafted homes, has made them a popular choice among homebuyers who are looking for a little more than the ordinary fare.

Lindvest builds well-planned, innovative communities in areas that fuse nature with convenience. Whether it’s a charming subdivision in a pristine setting or an iconic highrise in the city, Lindvest’s award-winning communities are as vibrant and unique as the people who live in them. From convenient locations and beautiful settings to innovative designs and luxurious finishes, every detail of a Lindvest neighbourhood is rooted in the company’s deep passion to help better the lives of their homebuyers.

Presently, Lindvest has communities coming soon in Vaughan, Oakville and Aurora. Each is singularly unique and offers an incredible variety of options.

KLEIN ESTATES

The beauty of nearby Kleinburg Village will soon be celebrated in a master-planned community of impressive estate homes. Here, Lindvest, with its long history of fine building in the GTA, is bringing its signature style to Klein Estates at Pine Valley and Teston Roads. This spectacular collection of traditional and contemporary homes on 42- and 50-foot lots will be polished to perfection with upscale refinements hand-selected for their beauty, functionality and quality.

A decidedly rural ambiance but far from isolated, Klein Estates offers the peace and tranquility of the countryside with fast connections to its urban neighbours. Downtown Mississauga is just 20 minutes away by car, Thornhill a mere 10 minutes, while Toronto’s Union Station is a fast 45-minute commute by GO Transit train from the Maple station just 10 kilometres away. Served by Highways 400, 401, 27, 407 and 427, Klein Estates is easily accessible for commuters.

Life in this lovely community is imbued with charm and art. Marketed as “The Art of Time Well Spent,” the Village of Kleinburg reflects the quaint ambiance of a turn-of-the-century town with modern accoutrements like a delightful Starbucks that attracts cyclists from around the GTA. Kleinburg is chock-a-block with one-off restaurants like Avenue Cibi e Vini, Avlyn Gardens Ristorante, Bellsito Trattoria, Chartreuse, Cookie Crumble Eatery and The Longchamp Pub. Wander the quaint village streets and discover its many unique shops and boutiques all in a lush forested setting where rolling hills and magnificent scenery forms the backdrop to life at a more relaxed pace.

Not far away, the famous Kortright Centre offers a tribute to conservation helping people understand, enjoy and look after the natural environment with a vision to create The Living City, where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature’s beauty and diversity. Close by, the well-loved McMichael Canadian Art Collection, home to Canada’s treasured Group of Seven masterpieces, offers programs and events for adults and children alike.

Kleinburg is home to the Binder Twine Festival, held yearly in the month of September. The tradition of the Binder Twine Festival originated with Charles Shaw Jr. who, in the 1890s, began selling binder twine to the local farmers. Binder twine was used to tie together sheaves of wheat. In appreciation for their business, Shaw gave his customers a modest dinner that eventually became a large community festival complete with games, refreshments and entertainment.

Like the community around it, Klein Estates is unique, with its own personality and style. Considered a bright beacon of creativity in a sea of architectural conformity, Klein Estates’ homes will blossom into beautiful streetscapes traversing delightful forests and rolling hills. This is a family neighbourhood where kids can experience a safe and happy childhood, where parents can enjoy all the trappings of a privileged lifestyle, where neighbours become friends and where life is good.

Klein Estates will be one not to be missed.

NORTH OAKVILLE

As one of three prestigious builders, Lindvest is shaping a stunning community of single-family homes called North Oakville. Located a short distance from the city’s Uptown Core, North Oakville is a one-of-a-kind community within a city that has been named the best place to live in Canada by MoneySense magazine. MoneySense gathered data on 415 cities across the country and ranked how they measure up in 10 categories – wealth and economy, affordability, population growth, taxes, commute, crime, weather, access to healthcare, amenities and culture. In an article published July 31, 2018 in MacLeans, Oakville was not only the best place to live overall, but “the best place for new Canadians, the third best place to retire and the fifth best place to raise a family.” Oakville placed in the top 25 per cent of all cities in six out of 10 categories.

Despite a growing population (recent census pegs Oakville at 200,000), it still retains its small-town charm. Which is a compelling reason for people looking for a detached home in a prestigious community to consider Lindvest’s North Oakville — opening later this fall.

AURORA GLEN TOWNHOMES

Seventy-two beautiful townhomes ranging in size from 1,725 to 2,362 square feet are well on their way to completion in Lindvest’s Aurora Glen community. Priced from the mid $900,000s, these homes are conveniently located close to all of the amenities of Aurora.

This is a great place to live and raise a family. Aurora has been ranked in the top 10 of wealthiest towns in Canada. With four secondary schools and numerous elementary schools Aurora has outstanding choices. The highly prestigious St. Andrews College, a private independent school for boys, is also located in Aurora.

Aurora has a long history of theatre, with its own community theatre group, Theatre Aurora. The group currently produces five shows each year as well as two youth shows.

With only 23 homes available for purchase, be sure to watch for the model home unveiling set to take place this fall.

FUTURE COMMUNITIES

Lindvest will be offering new communities in Oakville and in Brantford.

Across the GTA and beyond, Lindvest has been busy building single detached homes, townhomes and highrise living spaces, offering something for everyone whether they are just entering the market or looking to move to a larger home.

North Oakville

For instance, the single detached homes of Spring Valley Junction have enabled new connections in Brampton, where this new community aimed to create the harmony of home, family and community. The fusion of traditional brick, combination brick and stone, and eye-catching contemporary designs are now the homes of families who saw their dream homes go from rendering to reality.

Ground has broken on Lindvest’s highrise projects, Sonic and SuperSonic, making way for the buildings to reach the sky. Across the street, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is under construction and will soon be ready to whisk commuters across the city and beyond.

Brownstones at Westown

The two historic towns are sustaining gradual growth

HOUSING OPTIONS
