With about 66,000 acres, Brampton has something for everyone. Local housing consists if century-old homes in its historic neighbourhoods, as well as large master-planned communities offering everything from condos to townhomes to large single-family dwellings.
Brampton offers fun for all ages including Wild Water Kingdom, which has zip lines, a mini putt, a drive-in theatre, a sports dome, a driving range, picnic areas, cabana rentals and, of course, lots of water slides. There are also lots of golf courses, from public to private and everything in between. Brampton also boasts several art galleries, fine restaurants and the impressive Rose Theatre.

The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives links the past, present and future within buildings of historical and architectural significance. The Peel County Courthouse (1867), the Peel County Jail (1867), the Registry Office (1890) and the Peel County international-style building (1958) tell many stories.

Spring is a time of renewal. Nature is blooming. The sun is shining more often. The days are longer and warmer so it’s a perfect time to go searching for a new home. Where to begin?
Mattamy Homes is a great place to start. Whether you are searching for your very first home, or you need a larger home for a growing family, Mattamy can make the search very rewarding.
Since Mattamy built their first home in 1978, they have continuously brought innovation and architectural excellence to every home they build. Many of their communities are master-planned so families always have places to gather, playgrounds to visit and schools to attend within walking distance. Some communities also feature community centres, retail stores, ponds in the summer and skating rinks in the winter. Mattamy believes the community and your home should all be connected to create an enjoyable living experience.
A Mattamy community looks and feels different than other places. There are fewer homes per street so you don’t feel like you’re living in a cookie cutter environment. And the homes are offered in a variety of styles so each street has distinct character. Mattamy has always been an innovator in home design creating environments that simply make you feel right at home the instant you move in. They understand that open space allows for more fluid, free-flowing interaction.
Mattamy offers more choice in both exterior and interior finishes, so you can ensure the home you are buying is the home you always dreamed of. To personalize your home, Mattamy offers Architect’s Choice Options, which give homeowners an opportunity to make pre-approved structural changes before construction begins. These options are fully integrated into the home while under construction so you have the satisfaction of knowing that the home will be completely finished the way you want before you move in.
Mattamy’s state-of-the art Design Studios give their homeowners the choice to select every interior finish in your home. From granite countertops, backsplashes to trend-setting light fixtures, you will not be disappointed.
Mattamy Homes is the largest privately-owned homebuilder in North America with a 40-year history of operations across the United States and Canada. Every year, Mattamy helps 7,000 families realize their dream of homeownership. In the United States, the company is represented in 10 markets – Charlotte, Raleigh- Durham, Phoenix, Tucson, Jacksonville, Orlando (where its U.S. head office is located), Tampa, Sarasota, Naples and Southeast Florida. And in Canada, those communities stretch across the Greater Toronto Area, as well as in Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton.
Mattamy has won numerous awards for community planning and home design including an unprecedented seven-time winner of the Homebuilder of the Year Award in the GTA.
No matter what you want from a new home, Mattamy has what you’re looking for from a stylish condo or townhome to a luxury detached home. A Mattamy home is a home you’ll value for a lifetime.
You’ll find a Mattamy community anywhere you want to live throughout the GTA.
Have a great spring and happy home hunting.
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.
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.
Over in Markham, the first phase of the Grand Cornell Brownstones are nearly completed. These unique “stacked” units use space to the maximum, where sleek, stylish interiors make a statement that is modern and sophisticated. Most units of the Grand Cornell Brownstones feature private patios, balconies or rooftop terraces that provide a personal experience with the outdoors.
For anyone with visions of living in the country, the community of Gracefields is a modern addition to the pastoral charm of the town of Newcastle. The recently added community of Gracefields North means the area will be elevated even more. Just off Highway 401 but seemingly miles from the hustle and bustle, Newcastle is a gem in the country.
At Lindvest’s upcoming release, North Oakville, the future is looking towards contemporary and traditional elevations of 36-, 38-, 41-, 43- and 45-foot single detached homes. North Oakville will be located on the east side of 6th Line, between Dundas Street and Burnhamthorpe Road.
The future will also see the final release of the Aurora Glen Townhomes take shape as these homes are already under construction. As with the previous releases of Aurora Glen, these townhomes have the advantage of coming with a smart thermostat, intelligent locks and LED lighting that is not only budget-conscious but is safe on artwork.
There is something else Aurora Glen has been keeping something close to the vest. It will be releasing 11 exclusive townhomes in a very special area of the Aurora Glen project, surrounded by nature. Known as The Enclave, this cache of best-in-class townhomes will spare no expense. Be sure to visit Lindvest.com to show your interest.
Keep your ears to the ground as the official announcement of Lindvest’s next community is soon to come. This single detached home community is located at Teston Road and Pine Valley Drive in Vaughan. Beautiful homes in a beautiful location — yet again, Lindvest is helping to make dreams a reality.

As its slogan “You are the Blueprint” attests, National Homes takes homebuyer feedback seriously when planning its homes and communities.
Always an industry innovator, the company has now revolutionized the concept of traditional focus groups and consumer research with the National Homes Blueprint Workshop, a ground-breaking event that explored how homeowners feel about their homes, how they live in them, and what type of design, features and technology they believe will improve their lives.
The January Blueprint Workshop brought together creative design thinkers with dozens of past and potential future National Homes buyers of varied ages and demographics. They gathered in the IBM Innovation Space at Venture Labs in Markham, along with National Homes staff, designers, architects, engineers and partner leaders for a THINKTANK dedicated to new homes. Students from York University’s Schulich School of Business real estate master’s program also participated.
They broke into four small groups with partner leaders to engage in discussions, presentations and interviews. IBM helped to design and facilitate the workshop.
When IBM’s expertise in human-centred design indicates that the conversation is less about features and functions, and more about users and outcomes, businesses are more successful. It’s about understanding what matters to clients, how they see the world and getting to know them.
“With a typical focus group, people are sitting behind a screen or mirror with a facilitator and it’s structured,” says Deena Pantalone, director of marketing innovation and managing partner for National Homes. “This was more relaxed and comfortable. Rather than asking things such as, ‘Which interior finish do you like,’ we discussed generally how it feels to live in a house.”
The workshop’s purpose was to provide in-depth insight into homebuyers’ needs and desires, to further research and development efforts to position National Homes as a builder that values innovation and is responsive to its customers.
The day delved into the homeowner experience beyond bricks and mortar, explored new technology and time-saving solutions, as well as how to make the homebuying experience unique. It explored the idea of community, looking not just solely at homeowners’ needs, but what their parents and children might need as well.
Participants were selected based on responses to a survey sent to registrants from National Homes’ communities, along with current homeowners.
Partner leaders included Karl Vredenburg, Director IBM Design Worldwide Client Programs and head of IBM Studios Canada; Professor James McKellar, Associate Dean External Relations and Director of the Brookfield Centre in Real Estate and Infrastructure at the Schulich School of Business; Raphael Wong and Matt Lennan of ThoughtWire, a leading Canadian digital intelligence company; Jenna Zaza of The Interactive Abode, a technology company that allows purchasers to virtually decorate their new homes and make finishing selections online; Jason Disher, Logan Stewart, Tyler Balding and Yonnas Tecle of Panasonic, a company that makes state-of-theart home products; and Bob Storey, Andreas C. Leuth and Greg Jefferies of Sto Canada Ltd., a leader in high-performance building cladding options.
“Innovation has always been a staple of our corporate foundation,” says Pantalone. “I’ve travelled to leading international cities where this type of research is being carried out. We want to anticipate homeowner problems and provide solutions by thinking ahead. We want to provide futuristic homes that are affordable.”
Workshop participants got a glimpse into some of the future possibilities. For example, ThoughtWire has changed the way people act with their built environment with its software. It has played a transformative role in digitizing healthcare facilities, speeding up workflow and improving patient experience with automation and real-time interactions between medical staff, systems and devices. For instance, patients can control the temperature in their rooms, medical personnel get real-time patient information on their devices and elevators can be programmed so food carts delivering patient meals won’t be delayed. Some of this technology can be adapted for residential use.
Panasonic might be best known for home entertainment products in Canada, but the company has a comprehensive lineup of home-related products and builds entire new home communities in Japan. Participants learned about the Shimau Principle – the art of space and harmony where everything is in its rightful place. Panasonic offers comprehensive storage and organization solutions. Developed in Japan, where people live in smaller spaces, the solutions are a great fit for condos — or any home — as many homeowners do not utilize space to its best advantage.
Attendees got to see, touch and feel EcoShapes from Sto Canada, a product that has been used in Europe for more than 30 years but is new to Canada. It reduces energy costs, provides a higher R-value and reduces the home’s carbon footprint. Sto’s forward-thinking products contribute to creating a superior energy-efficient home.
Zaza, founder of The Interactive Abode, explained how pop culture, online sites and TV shows inspired development of her interactive software that allows purchasers the time to research and make decisions about their new home selections from the comfort of their own homes. It uses photo-realistic renderings to take the guesswork out of decisions between standard or upgrade options and allows buyers to visualize how colour selections and finishes will look in their new residence. Zaza says in the last five years, sales centres have incorporated software that helps with homebuying, but the process was lacking in the design studio. Zaza brought four laptops for workshop participants to try the online design studio for themselves.
Pantalone is excited about the possibilities the Blueprint Workshop offered and sees this as the springboard for more collaborative sessions with homeowners and other partners to transform the builder-buyer relationship.
“Our slogan, ‘You Are the Blueprint,’ means something to us as a company,” she said. “This will allow us to take our relationship with our purchasers to a whole new level and create a more meaningful buying and living experience for them.”
National Homes looks forward to offering some of their latest “bright ideas” at upcoming new home communities in 2018 and 2019 including Markham, Bradford, Brampton, Courtice and Burlington.

Sixty years ago, Enzo Di Giovanni’s family immigrated from Italy. With them, they brought hand-crafted construction techniques derived from a long legacy of home building. Di Giovanni’s relatives were masters in masonry and concrete, and those skills were passed down to him at a very young age. “I’ve lived most of my life on a construction site,” says Di Giovanni.
While it may be a slight exaggeration, it isn’t far from the truth. Di Giovanni has an extensive background in a number of trades as a result of being on site since his youth – and he’s learned to master the artistry that goes along with them. His passion is shared with everyone who works on each new home building project – from start to finish.
Briarwood Homes is now in their 28th year in Canada, and they have focused their expertise on the Southern Ontario area. “We’re all about developing, and building, all-encompassing communities,” says Di Giovanni. “They’re built to a master plan that often includes a full range of amenities and retail services, as well.”
It’s this forward-thinking philosophy that continues to put Briarwood on the top rung of the building industry ladder. They are developing more sustainable communities that are also environment-friendly. Green roofs are being incorporated on top of their high rise buildings, and rough-ins are included in garages to accommodate super-charged, electric vehicles. “It’s all about anticipating what our homebuyers are looking for today,” says Di Giovanni. “And what they might possibly need for generations to come.”
Extending from Kingston in the east, to the northern climes of Muskoka, as well as the south/western region of Fort Erie (and everything in between), Briarwood Homes has an extensive portfolio of high-, low- and mid-rise communities in Newmarket, Brampton, Milton, Angus, Sutton and Prince Edward County, to name a few.
New projects currently in production, or recently finished, include Pretty River in Collingwood, Fletcher’s Meadow in Brampton, Mill Street in Tottenham and Havelock Town Manors in Markham, as well as a limited edition of luxury towns on the water in Jackson’s Point.
An in-house designer is available to assist new home buyers with a selection of finishes and upgrades to best represent their personal style.
When Briarwood is designing a model home or a new condo lobby, they outsource the decorating to the best in the business. Nothing is left to chance.
Homebuyers appreciate the hands-on attention and unparalleled customer service that they’ve come to expect from Briarwood Homes, because they know that nothing will be overlooked. All departmental employees, along with the trades and manufacturers that Di Giovanni deals with, respect this level of commitment. Only the highest quality materials are sourced, and a wide selection of options are hand-picked. “It’s what our customers want,” says Di Giovanni.
While the CEO of Briarwood Homes, Enzo Di Giovanni, may have a bricks and mortar office located at the company’s head office in Richmond Hill, it’s more likely that his car is command central. “I’m completely hands-on,” says Di Giovanni. “I get personally involved – it’s in my DNA.”
