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.

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.

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.”

Flato Developments looks to the future with promise for the charming village of Dundalk

Flato Developments looks to the future with promise for the charming village of Dundalk

People used to escape to “north of the city” to get away from it all. Now, for thousands of residents, “north of the city” is just another term for “home.” Everything this burgeoning village has to offer caters to today’s sophisticated homebuyer. That village is, of course, Dundalk, just an hour north of the GTA, very close to Orangeville, and a short drive to Hwys. 89 and 10 yet far from the negative connotations and congestion of the big city. Dundalk is a unique contradiction that offers the warmth of small town living with all the convenience the city has to offer.

Offering a new home value that simply doesn’t exist anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area. Mere minutes from the country, Dundalk’s small size combined with its plentiful offering of modern amenities allows visitors and residents alike to experience the simple pleasures of village living with all the conveniences of a truly modern community.

Experience the warmth and hospitality of exclusive small town retailers such as flower and gift shops, Southgate Farmer’s Market, a pet supply company, numerous hairstyling boutiques, the convenience of banks such as CIBC and RBC, or a handful of restaurants throughout the village.

Plus, Dundalk’s geographic position makes it the envy of outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. People from all over come to the area to experience true four season leisure that is simply unrivalled. Hike the Bruce Trail along the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designated Niagara Escarpment, ski the world class slopes and crosscountry trails of Collingwood and the Blue Mountains, or soak up the sun fishing or boating on stunning Georgian Bay. Whatever your favourite season, Dundalk has a reason to call it home.

Here, days are filled with watching youth soccer or little league, or meeting friends at the local community centre. Or any of the parks, soccer fields, and baseball diamonds throughout the community. Or visit Dundalk Arena & Community Centre, Dundalk Pool, or Memorial Park. However residents choose to spend their time, Dundalk is ready with every modern perk. All conveniently situated at your fingertips.

Dundalk has evolved to offer more than just a quiet getaway from the everyday. It offers a hometown feeling you have to experience for yourself. There’s an energy to the town that wasn’t there before, as new residents bring their unique experiences, life journeys, and optimism to this now bustling town. Here, signature country living melds seamlessly with a meticulously merged offering of must-have modern amenities that no one can do without.

But with a keen respect for where Dundalk has been, Flato Dev. looks to the future with promise for this charming village. And while Dundalk’s current offerings have people moving to the village in record numbers, what really has people excited for the future is what is planned for it. With major infrastructure projects such as the Markdale Hospital now approved and schools like Dundalk & Proton Community School and Highpoint Community School anticipating the villages newest residents, this region isn’t just poised for greatness now. It’s positioning itself to serve the needs of this generation and the ones soon to come. Creating master-planned communities and neighbourhoods that will address these needs today, and well into the future.

What is drawing people to Dundalk besides the traditional modern amenities is the area’s focus on bettering the lives of its residents of all ages. Mingled amongst traditional retail and shopping opportunities, you’ll find an abundance of parks, greenspace, trails, healthcare facilities, schools and universities, and several retirement homes, including Flato’s upcoming 55-plus adult condominium/community Edgewood Suites. All key pieces of a puzzle that will no doubt have Dundalk growing at a pace unprecedented in the area and beyond.

Flato Markham Theatre honours locals in annual performing arts awards

Flato Markham Theatre Performing Arts Awards Sept 10, 2019
Markham Performing Arts 2019 winners, staff and artists

The Flato Markham Theatre recently hosted its 5th Annual Performing Arts Awards, with celebrations honouring homegrown artistic achievements. Special performances included a three-time Provincial champion in piano, Richard Yeh, musical excerpts from the best of Broadway from Markham producer Brian Goldenberg and a special guest appearance by award-winning recording artist, Pavlo.

But the spotlight shone on the real stars of the evening: Community Group/Artist of the Year, Markham at the Movies; Professional Artist of the Year, Canada’s Ballet Jorgen; Partner of the Year, Asian Television Network; and a new category this year, Ambassador of the Year, Alicia and Alex Chiu.

Markham at the Movies (MATM), chaired by Paul Sylvester, is a non-profit group, run by volunteers and film enthusiasts who focus on bringing award-winning Canadian and international films to Markham’s resident’s doorstep. Markham at the Movies is a partner of Film Circuit, a division of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) group. It started at a small scale, presenting movies in the Theatre’s rehearsal hall and has grown into a popular community cultural event, now presenting a six-movie series throughout the year at the Flato Markham Theatre.

Ballet Jörgenis not only an internationally respected touring ballet company, but it is also one of the only companies that will take professional ballet productions to smaller communities across Canada and into the US. Executive Director Stephen Word and his team brings outreach opportunities within those communities, giving young dancers opportunities to perform with the ballet onstage.

Asian Television Network (ATN) delivers South Asian and Asian content to residents across Canada. Shan Chandrasekar, president and CEO of ATN, pioneered South Asian programming in Canada in 1971 and ATN has grown into one of the leaders in the media industry today, operating 54 specialty tv channels along with radio channels across the country.

Alicia and Alex Chiu have been long time supporters of the Flato Markham Theatre. Alex left politics this last election and holds the current record for the longest serving councillor in Markham. For the Theatre, Alex has been instrumental for the growth of the Theatre Gala which raises money for its Discovery programs and has championed raising the profile of the event, making it into a prime fundraising event for culture in Markham and York Region. Alicia and Alex have been involved in the Federation of Filipino Canadians, including their “Taste of Broadway” event.

Every year the Flato Markham Theatre chooses a Canadian artist to design the Markham Performing Arts Awards. This year’s talented artist is Cathy Mark. Working from her studio on the north shore of Lake Scugog, her metalwork is inspired by Canadian flora and fauna. The award she created for Community Group/Artist of the Year for Markham at the Movies is a metal sculpture of young fiddleheads and ferns representing the audience (fiddleheads) with the full-grown ferns representing the films themselves. The Performing Artist of the Year award for Canada’s Ballet Jorgen, depicts a moose teaching a bear to dance, symbolizing the ballet company (moose) offering its hand to and guiding the young bear who represents the young dancers the company mentors and their involvement in the community.

Flato Markham Theatre is a jewel in the crown of the Markham community, located only 30 minutes from the downtown core. The intimate, 527-seat, state-of-the-art performance facility provides patrons with unforgettable access to a host of internationally acclaimed artists and productions through its annual Diamond Season presented by Weins Canada. Illuminating the central theme that the live arts in Markham matters, the season features the best of classical, jazz, world music, dance, comedy, pop artists, and family entertainment. Flexible ticket package options and complimentary parking are available.
