Greatwise moving into the GTA

Ottawa builder moving to GTA with projects in North York and St. James Town.

With an enviable track record for delivering desirable homes in Ottawa neighbourhoods such as Qualicum and Alta Vista, Greatwise Developments is poised to launch almost 3,000 new residences in Toronto and Ottawa over the next two years. From townhomes to condominium suites and rental buildings, the choices will be varied, yet they will all have one thing in common – superb design and construction quality provided by one of Ontario’s most progressive developers.

Coming soon to the GTA, Greatwise will launch the first of many exciting new communities, an eight-storey condominium of 100 suites offering beautiful views in a mature residential neighbourhood near Glencairn and Bathurst Streets. Convenient ground level retail is planned.

In North York, Greatwise is master-planning a 10-acre property with approximately 1,500 condos and rental units, a potential retirement residence and major retail space. The towers will afford unparalleled views of the Valleyland and Earl Bales Park.

Greatwise has presented initial plans to redevelop a portion of St. James Town’s Wellesley-Parliament Square, adding new condominium towers, midrise buildings and townhomes totalling almost 900 units, a proposed grocery store and fitness facility combined, plus retail. The proposal includes ways to enhance the existing neighbourhood with new, connected green space and park areas.

One outstanding community, now selling Phase 2 following the successful sell out of the first phase, is modern Fresh Towns on Baseline Road and Morrison in Nepean, Ottawa, which has hit a market sweet spot with homebuyers. This well-priced, superbly located neighbourhood offers 90 spacious three-story, two- and three-bedroom townhomes and a new Signature Collection is to be released this spring.

In Ottawa later this year, the company plans to launch Fresh Condos, applying rigorous research and focus group insight to tailor the product to their customer base. This new lowrise condo will offer 75 suites.

Greatwise Developments was established in 1984 to bring a fresh perspective to the new homebuilding industry, which the company has successfully achieved. After creating thousands of homes in Ontario communities, Greatwise continually sets the bar for excellence. Social responsibility and corporate citizenship are company hallmarks, which includes a commitment to ethical practices, sustainable, low-impact building, and exemplary customer service while upholding construction standards that exceed Ontario Building Code.

Fresh Towns

A Fresh new take on capital living

Latest News


A Fresh new take on capital living

by Gale Beeby
Editor, HOMES Magazine & Condo Life

Ottawa may well be the ultimate company town, with most employment centered around the government of Canada, be it federal employees or any number of supporting industries from law firms to lobbyists to restaurant and hotel workers. It also has a reputation for being a little, er, straightlaced.

But that isn’t so true anymore. Residents of Canada’s capital no longer have to head across the Ottawa River to Hull, Quebec, in order to find some evening entertainment or fine dining. Ottawa has grown up and is now growing out and is seeing a growth spurt in population and residential developments.

And why, you may wonder, is this interesting? I always want to know what is happening in the real estate market, not only in the GTHA, but also throughout Ontario and Canada. So, when Fresh Towns came to my attention, I couldn’t help but be interested.

Located in Ottawa’s increasingly popular west end neighbourhood of Qualicum, Fresh Towns by Greatwise Developments has sold over 70 per cent of its first phase in less than a month and every indication points to the imminent release of the community’s second phase being met with the same enthusiasm.

With a unique urban design and highly desirable features, Fresh Towns offers a stunning contemporary option along with an affordable price point.

Greatwise used online surveys from the earliest stages of development to help pinpoint precisely who their buyers are and what they are looking for — the best in modern living with an indoor/outdoor element and lots of opportunity to tailor their homes to suit their individual needs.

As a result of this inclusive approach, available models at Fresh Towns include three-storey rooftop towns, which offer residents their own personal sanctuary overlooking this growing neighbourhood. Traditional three-storey towns are also available, and every model in both styles offers a private garage.

Features and finishes throughout are hand picked by Ottawa’s West of Main Interior Design. With designer backsplashes and countertops and engineered hardwood floors, buyers can also custom tailor their living spaces through lifestyle finishes packages.

The neighbourhood has everything residents want, especially families and first-time buyers, including proximity to schools, shops, transit, highways and downtown, as well as Morrison Park, Andrew Haydon Park, the Nepean Sailing Club and the Ottawa River, all big draws for those who love the great outdoors. For those looking for a delicious culinary experience, the area boasts numerous restaurants, clubs and pubs. Fresh Towns starts in the low $300,000s for more than a 1,000 square feet, and although the largest units are a spacious 1,663 square feet, prices go up only into the $400,000s. Highly affordable by GTA standards.
