Geranium makes water-saving a priority at Edgewood in Pickering

Purchasers at Geranium‘s new home community Edgewood in Pickering will enjoy the water conservation benefits of having a Greyter Home water recycling system included in their home at no extra charge.

Geranium is the first homebuilder in Canada to parcel this feature into the construction of an entire community. For Edgewood homeowners, this will mean reducing their annual water bill by approximately 20 per cent and, for a family of four, saving up to 30,000 litres of water in one year – an amount of water that could fill a 16-by-32-ft. rectangular swimming pool.

“Water is a precious resource and Canadians are one of the highest users per capita worldwide,” says Boaz Feiner, president of Geranium. “At home, we use hundreds of litres of water daily by showering, bathing, flushing toilets, running dishwashers and washing machines. In 2013, we learned about Greyter’s initiatives for the commercial market. Although there wasn’t a residential system available in Canada, they were working towards changing that. Going forward, we decided to include the rough-in for a greywater system in our lowrise homes, something that would be much more costly to do if possible at all, once the house was built. By providing the rough-in, we are giving the owners of our homes the opportunity to buy and install a system when they became available for houses.”

Greyter’s Home system captures and treats shower and bathwater so it can be reused for flushing toilets. The entire compact system is installed inside the home, requires only five standard plumbing connections and is easy for a professional plumber to install. Additional features are its superior, proprietary filtration and treatment process; low maintenance; low energy requirements; and comes with a touchpad controller that handles all aspects of the system operation and provides the homeowner with performance data, maintenance reminders and tutorials.

Geranium and Greyter will share data collected from the Edgewood homes, with the City of Pickering and Durham Region. Geranium has been selected as the winner of the City of Pickering’s 2019 Sustainability Award for its Edgewood community.

You can have all of that and more, especially when you hear and experience all that the new Edgewood Suites has to offer.

Previews of Dundalk’s first adult lifestyle community will begin soon. See what a unique and laidback approach to independent living, in a safe neighbourhood in the heart of Dundalk, looks like. Experience the freedom to live the life you’re always dreamed of with unspoiled nature, parks and countless amenities at your fingertips.

Residents will enjoy a concierge service, open dining, as well as a guest room and storage lockers. For entertaining, there is a barbecue patio and a lovely gazebo outside.

There will be endless activities for everyone. Musical performances and classes on site, as well as gardening opportunities and library activities. Participate in birthday parties, bingos, baking sessions and monthly pot lucks.

Residents will also have access to regular painting classes, movie nights, health and wellness workshops and more.

Community builder FLATO Developments is responding to the demand from local seniors who want to stay in the community and decided to bring its flagship adult lifestyle apartment building to Dundalk. Creating space for adults 55-plus and seniors to live in Dundalk is important to the vitality of the entire community.

When planning the amenities for this adult lifestyle apartment, FLATO Developments designed Edgewood Suites to take some of the burden of household maintenance off residents’ shoulder.

Edgewood Suites is also ideally located and will benefit from a newly-announced inter-community transit route coming to the area this year. The new Grey Transit Route (GTR) will offer regular service along Hwy. 26 between Owen Sound and Town of The Blue Mountains, and along Hwy. 10 between Owen Sound and Orangeville. A third route will also link Owen Sound and Wiarton three days per week. This added transportation link will benefit everyone who lives in Dundalk and Grey County, improving commute times and it will make it easier for anyone going to and from the GTA for family visits, shopping or special events.

Around the apartment community, there are beautiful parks, a nearby 77-km multi-use trail that provides breath-taking views of Georgian Bay, and many conservation areas and provincial parks that are just a short drive away.

From inside to out, Edgewood Suites is an amenity-rich apartment building in a well-connected location. It’s the place retirement dreams are made of.

Allegro is nestled in Aurora’s downtown core on a rare former golf course property, minutes from Yonge Street and bordering Bathurst Street. New cul-de-sac streets, and homes on gracious 52-foot and 61-foot lots, are woven into an established neighbourhood where existing trees reach above the rooftops. Almost half of the community is preserved as a park and greenspace for residents of Allegro and all of Aurora to enjoy. Allegro presents a unique lifestyle opportunity where every store and restaurant you can imagine is at your doorstep.

Timeless architecture is combined with contemporary designs that reflect the way families live, with flexible open-concept areas, as well as private spaces, which may include an office or a library, ideal for today’s work-from-home culture.

Allegro offers four and five-bedroom layouts with two- and three-car garages, in two-storey and bungalow-loft configurations plus many options to personalize, such as an elevator and a dog wash. Homes have oversized patio doors opening onto a wonderful covered loggia, providing magnificent views and connection to mature treed backyards.

With striking exteriors, flexible designs and outstanding finishes in a sought-after locale, Allegro is perfect for purchasers seeking a luxury forever home. Floorplans range from approximately 3,100 to under 4,400 square feet with prices starting from $2 million.

Geranium announces 40 years of Giving initiative

In a year that marks four decades of creating superb master-planned neighbourhoods and innovative new homes, Geranium is enhancing its ongoing commitment to contributing to the well-being of the broader community. The company has announced 40 years of Giving, a special initiative that will form one aspect of Geranium’s annual charitable donations. For each new Geranium home sold in 2017, a donation of $150 will be made in the name of the homebuyer, to a charity chosen by them from a list prepared by Geranium.

“Community building and good corporate citizenship is high on our list of priorities and we strive to be a good neighbour as well as a quality builder,” says Geranium president Boaz Feiner. “This philosophy is ingrained in our corporate culture and, for the past 40 years, we’ve participated in numerous community-based events, sponsored fund-raising activities, donated to charities and non-profit organizations directly, and acted as a resource for community groups wherever possible.

“To mark this anniversary, we are honouring the families who enable us to continue to do what we do best. This could be another record year for our new home sales, which means the total amount will be upwards of $25,000.”

Using information available from Charity Intelligence (CharityIntelligence.ca) the team selected 12 charities as potential recipients of this year’s funds, as determined by the homebuyer. Charity Intelligence collects and analyzes information on transparency, accountability and the need for funding and operating efficiency as a service to donors.

The short list represents a broad range of charities operating in Ontario and internationally in the categories of health, social services, youth, the environment, animal welfare, sport and recreation. They include:

  • The Alzheimer Society of Ontario
  • AMICI Camping Charity
  • Doctors Without Borders
  • FoodShare
  • The George Hull Centre
  • Homes First
  • INDSPIRE
  • The Jane Goodall Institute
  • The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
  • SKETCH
  • The Special Olympics Ontario
  • WaterAid Canada

On the housing front, Geranium will be launching for sale new neighbourhoods in Aurora and Pickering in 2017, as well as starting construction of the sold out Trails at Cardinal Point, and VISTA Flats & Towns in Stouffville.

ALLEGRO IN AURORA

Floorplans will range from approximately 3,100 to just under 4,400 square feet.

“We’ve worked closely with Hunt Design to create two-storey and bungalow-with-loft layouts offering as many of the features and living spaces desired by today’s families as possible,” explains Stephanie Lane, manager sales and marketing. “We also have the advantage of recently building three neighbourhoods of luxury homes and have included the best attributes of the most popular floorplans in Allegro.”

Among these features, prospective homebuyers will find designs that offer four or five bedrooms each with ensuite or shared ensuite baths, kitchens and breakfast areas open to spacious great rooms, living and dining rooms either combined or separated, mud room entries from two- or three-car garages, second floor laundry rooms and media rooms.

Thoughtful optional features may include outdoor kitchens, elevators, dog washing areas, coffered and waffle decorative ceilings and extra fireplaces.
