Flato Developments releases Edgewood Suites in Dundalk

Flato Developments recently launched Edgewood Suites, its flagship adult living community in Dundalk, via a virtual preview event. The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured comments from prominent members of the community, including Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker and Southgate Mayor John Woodbury.

Edgewood Suites is a space for adults 55 and older, designed to take the burden of household maintenance off residents’ shoulders. Located at 270 Hagan St. E., the apartment building features a full-spectrum of living options, with studios, one- and two-bedroom rentals available. The building includes a cards room, rec room, multi-purpose room, library and a faith room. Residents will enjoy a concierge service, open dining area, as well as a guest room and storage lockers. For entertainment, there is a barbecue patio and gazebos outside.

“Ontarians are finding it harder to find high-quality, affordable homes,” says Shakir Rehmatullah, president and founder of Flato Developments. “With Edgewood Suites, we responded to a demand from local residents who want to stay in the area when they plan to retire. Dundalk is a thriving community with much to offer its residents, and we are confident that the new apartment building will be the perfect addition to the neighbourhood.”

“We’re delighted to have more options for older adults in our community when they decide to downsize yet stay engaged,” says John Woodbury, mayor of Township of Southgate. “Flato has been an active partner and supporter of Dundalk, and we look forward to working with them further.”

“Older Ontarians deserve flexible, safe and affordable homes,” says Minister Bill Walker. “These new homes address the housing supply priorities of our province and are central to our mission of building sustainable communities.”

Flato Developments’ commitment to supporting the communities where it builds and operates comes to life in many ways. In May, Flato donated $1 million to South East Grey Community Health Centre toward the establishment of a new healthcare clinic in Dundalk. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Flato allocated more than $250,000 to those in need, donating more than 50,000 masks and more than 5,000 tubes of hand sanitizer to assist health care and frontline workers across Ontario.

COVID-19 already influencing new home and condo design – experts

COVID-19 is challenging all kinds of things about life in Canada – including the way we live and work. Our panel of experts share their insights on the new home and condo design changes already taking place.

COVID-19 has transformed our homes into our offices, classrooms, gyms, and playgrounds. Our homes need to encourage physical and mental health. To support the growing roles of our homes, flexibility in design will be key. For remote workers, we’ll need to prioritize flex spaces which offer natural light, plus acoustical and visual privacy to maintain separation between work and homelife.

Building amenities such as the coworking space offered in Broccolini’s River & Fifth and upcoming LeftBank projects can make this possible for residents with less space. For material selection, we’ll continue to prioritize durability and cleaning ease, incorporating choices such as quartz countertops and porcelain tiles in residences and amenity spaces.

There’s no question that moving forward people will continue to work from home if they’re able to, and that decision will greatly affect how people choose to design their new homes or condominiums in this new normal. Our space will have to be very functional, livable and afford us the room we need to work. There will be great emphasis on building out multi-purpose rooms that have the ability to work smarter for us and take full advantage of square footage.

There’s great power in good design. A living room equipped with bookshelves and a console table could function as an office, whereas a guest bedroom could also have built-in desk and storage solutions to offer the same value. It’s less about dedicating a specific room as an office and instead making certain rooms offer dual functions.

Flato Developments

Flexible spaces are a great way to reconcile livability with affordability. In response to the working- from-home reality, we have started exploring the idea of co-ownership condo suites with a shared flexible zone that would allow two potential owners to share a home office space.

In multi-unit condo design where space is typically very efficient, we are looking beyond the four walls of each suite in order to find flexible and cost-effective design solutions through cost sharing. We think shared indoor and outdoor amenity areas with generous, strategically located flexible spaces designed with functionality, wellness and technology features would be very marketable. This way, a potential buyer might opt to pay more to buy into a building where there are options to work from home, but not always within the confines of the walls in his condo suite.

Gairloch Developments

We have been seeing the trend in work-from-home increase over the past decade. Urban professionals long to eliminate a commute to gain more time for family and personal pursuits. There is also a desire to work in a more informal environment with comfort of home conveniences. Our clients are looking for uncluttered living spaces, timeless design and large windows affording views and plenty of natural light.

We understand that a condominium amenity space is an integral part of a building. A well-designed amenity should remain flexible, be attractive to many and facilitate future ways that we will work and inhabit our homes. At our 1414 Bayview project, the flexible amenity space is realized within a series of grand rooms, including a large communal table, for formal and informal lounging and working.

Our firm believes that a well-designed living space continues outdoors. Private, open-air retreats remain a top priority for our clients, especially in these unprecedented times. Several of the upper units at 1414 Bayview have access to large private terraces which will allow for outdoor lounging, entertaining and even working, from the comforts of home.

An open concept floorplan has generally been the defining characteristic of new home design for years. The possibility of the new norm remaining suggests that flexible private areas such as home offices, gyms and playrooms with acoustic insulation are no longer a luxury but a necessity. In lowrise homes, functional finished lower levels offer additional space at an affordable price while eliminating impact to main floor principal rooms. Extensions to the outdoors from traditional living spaces will become more valued. Enlarged windows, covered porch and patio areas, walkouts when possible all help provide a sanctuary without leaving the home.

Heathwood Homes

In the new reality of a COVID-19 world, more people will be working from their home. This isn’t necessarily new, it’s just going to become so much more prevalent now.

In most homes, the trend towards the more open concept designs over the last decade does allow for flex space on the ground floor, but that same design comes with distractions in the form of noise and other people.

The easiest solution would be to carve out some “office space” in an existing bedroom or the basement area where daytime distractions would be minimized.

Bedrooms can be modified to have a desk niche, in lieu of a closet or have a murphy bed setup that allows for lots of additional daytime space. Also, in some homes, the laundry room could be moved to the basement, and that space becomes ideal office space.

Of utmost importance is that you have your Internet connections and modems of the highest speed and quality – so that you can ensure connectivity everywhere in the house. That way you can move around the home as needed – so that morning meeting can be had with a coffee on the front porch. Good technology is key.

Minto Communities

Within condos, technology must be elevated to offer keyless entry, parcel drop-off and virtual platforms which can keep residents connected. Amenities should include breakout rooms and pods that facilitate continued amenity independent use, with greater emphasis on easily disinfected surfaces. There will be value to designs that can prioritize private outdoor spaces, and offer provisions for full-time work/study for multiple people, separating work and personal life within a single space.

We must use the events of COVID-19 to think about the resilience of systems and spaces, without losing track of the importance of designing spaces that promote well-being through community and connection.

National Homes

Remote work spaces can take many forms. In larger homes, a dedicated office can work for one or two members of a household. For smaller homes, an alcove off a hallway with pocket doors for audible separation, similar to an office cubicle, may be all that is needed.

Glass partitions can be incorporated to allow a parent to keep an eye on their little ones, while still having a noise separation. If distractions in the home are not an issue, the main living space can be used as a flex space. Built-in desks with accessible outlets, such as National’s signature “Family Centre,” can be the perfect space to work from.

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.

In2ition Realty, other homebuilding industry firms step up to aid in COVID-19 relief

As challenging as the pandemic has been, there’s also been no shortage of good news, feelgood stories among new home and condo builders, developers, marketers, suppliers and others, as they pitch in to do their part for COVID-19 relief.

Among them is In2ition Realty. The Mississauga, Ont. new home and condo marketing and sales firm has long been involved in charitable initiatives.

“For us, being involved in a charity has been part of our work life and our work culture,” Founder and CEO Debbie Cosic told HOMES Publishing.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic struck, uncovering other needs in the community, and other ways In2ition could help.

“We were looking for a charitable endeavour during these trying times, when many of us were home in the beginning kind of wondering what to do with our time, until more normalcy of our meeting schedules returned,” says Cosic.

Feed Mississauga reached out to In2ition, asking not just for much needed funds, but to help provide some social media and creative expertise to further raise awareness.

“It’s turned out to be very timely for us, that we could really roll up our sleeves and lend a hand,” Cosic says. “The food bank was down 50 per cent in both donations and in volunteers, so they were at a crisis point.”

Markham is a hotbed of economic development and growth

Markham – a hotbed of economic development and growth

Latest News


Markham – a hotbed of economic development and growth

As the fourth most populous community in the GTA – after Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton – Markham has been a hotbed for economic growth and development for years.

It’s long been known as a centre for growing sectors such as technology and life sciences – and therefore employment growth – one of the key drivers of housing demand.

Today, Markham is home to more than 1,000 such companies, with IBM, Huawei, Honeywell, Advanced Micro Devices, Motorola and Oracle all having their Canadian headquarters located in the city.

Residence has its price

Buying a home in Markham may cost you, though, as it has also become one of the GTA’s most expensive housing markets.

According to the Royal LePage Home Price Index for the first quarter of 2020, aggregate home prices grew 6.9 cent year-over-year to $1 million. Standard two-storey prices grew 6.6 per cent to $1.16 million, while detached bungalows increased 5.7 per cent to $1.02 million.

Still, new-home development is a priority for Markham City Hall and Mayor Frank Scarpitti, who was first elected in 2006 and is known as developer- and builder-friendly. The city has a number of new home developments underway, including some high-profile condo and lowrise projects.

The revitalization of Downtown Markham has been spearheaded by The Remington Group’s multi-use development along Main Street, which includes expansive retail shops, a Marriott Hotel, a Cineplex, as well as a variety of condo buildings and townhomes.

Cultural diversity

Culture is also an important attraction in Markham, with The Flato Markham Theatre offering more than 300 live performances each year, showcasing the diversity of the city. In addition, Varley Art Gallery encompasses the historic Kathleen McKay House, which was the home of Group of the Seven’s Frederick Horsman Varley for the last 12 years of his life. Measuring 15,000 sq. ft., the gallery is the second most popular tourist attraction in York Region.

Markham also has dozens of parks with baseball diamonds, soccer pitches and children’s play areas and splash pads. The city also boasts more than 22 kms of scenic pathways with 12 bridges that provide recreational activity for joggers and cyclists.

The largest park in the city is the Milne Dam Conservation Park. Measuring 305 acres, it is bordered by thick forest on the south and east and the Rouge River runs through the middle.

Toogood Pond is an 82-acre park that features a partially naturalized pond and marsh, and it recently underwent revitalization to remove sediment, restore the shoreline and plant native foliage.

Getting around Markham is facilitated by easy access to Hwys. 404 and 407 and the DVP, and for public transit, York Region Transit/Viva connects with all nine York Region municipalities, and GO Transit provides regular train and bus service.

Population of 328,940, located in the Regional Municipality of York in the GTA; distance from downtown Toronto, 30 km

Flato Developments supporting Ontario frontline workers in fight against COVID-19

Flato Developments, an Ontario-based community builder, is pushing forward to help alleviate the spread of the novel virus, by purchasing and donating protective equipment and critical supplies to those on the frontlines.

With the number of COVID-19 cases growing in Ontario, frontline staff at hospitals and senior care homes are faced with the burden of limited medical supplies. Premier Doug Ford has called on residents and businesses of Ontario to help those in need as we face these trying times together, as a community.

The company has been continuously supporting the communities where Flato builds and operates. Flato has donated about 17,000 surgical masks and more than 2,500 KN95 masks to hospitals, senior care homes and local communities throughout southern Ontario. Separately, the company purchased and coordinated delivery of more than 3,000 tubes of hand sanitizer to those in need.

Flato has also committed to supporting local food banks throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including Shepherds Cupboard Food Bank, Daily Bread Food Bank and The Mississauga Food Bank.

We have heard, loud and clear, the message from premier Ford and want to help the communities where we build and operate in, our local families and neighbours.”

Throughout the campaign, Flato has supported the following municipalities and organizations:

  • Markham-Stouffville Hospital
  • Town of Stouffville
  • Headwaters Health Care Centre
  • City of Markham
  • Stevenson Memorial Hospital
  • South East Grey Community Health Centre
