Vaughan now known as ‘The Place To Be’

by Gale Beeby

No longer is Vaughan just the city above Toronto, it’s now known as ‘The Place To Be.’


In Vaughan, over 80 per cent of the housing is single-family, detached dwellings, and about 94 per cent of residents own their own home. However, with the province’s Places to Grow policy, Vaughan is seeing a boom of condominium towers along the vibrant Highway 7. Maple, Concord, Kleinburg and Woodbridge are also seeing housing booms, with lots of master-planed communities on offer.

The largest theme park in Canada – Canada’s Wonderland – is in Maple and measures 330 acres and boasts 16 roller coasters. It also has a 20-acre water park and its fall season includes Halloween Hunt. Historically, the areas of Woodbridge, Concord, Nashville and Maple have been agricultural and a number of farmers’ markets are open during the summer.

The City of Vaughan is also home to some of the best public and private golf courses in the GTA, including The National, The Board of Trade, Bayview, Thornhill, Cardinal, Eagles Nest, Maple Downs and Copper Creek.


People are drawn to Vaughan because of its high quality of life, abundant green spaces and exciting attractions.

Emphasis on beautiful architecture and quality-crafted homes

Lindvest is a Toronto-based real estate development group with deep roots, spanning six decades in the award-winning, highly-respected H&R family of companies. Their signature emphasis on beautiful architecture and quality-crafted homes, has made them a popular choice among homebuyers who are looking for a little more than the ordinary fare.

Lindvest builds well-planned, innovative communities in areas that fuse nature with convenience. Whether it’s a charming subdivision in a pristine setting or an iconic highrise in the city, Lindvest’s award-winning communities are as vibrant and unique as the people who live in them. From convenient locations and beautiful settings to innovative designs and luxurious finishes, every detail of a Lindvest neighbourhood is rooted in the company’s deep passion to help better the lives of their homebuyers.

Presently, Lindvest has communities coming soon in Vaughan, Oakville and Aurora. Each is singularly unique and offers an incredible variety of options.


The beauty of nearby Kleinburg Village will soon be celebrated in a master-planned community of impressive estate homes. Here, Lindvest, with its long history of fine building in the GTA, is bringing its signature style to Klein Estates at Pine Valley and Teston Roads. This spectacular collection of traditional and contemporary homes on 42- and 50-foot lots will be polished to perfection with upscale refinements hand-selected for their beauty, functionality and quality.

A decidedly rural ambiance but far from isolated, Klein Estates offers the peace and tranquility of the countryside with fast connections to its urban neighbours. Downtown Mississauga is just 20 minutes away by car, Thornhill a mere 10 minutes, while Toronto’s Union Station is a fast 45-minute commute by GO Transit train from the Maple station just 10 kilometres away. Served by Highways 400, 401, 27, 407 and 427, Klein Estates is easily accessible for commuters.

Life in this lovely community is imbued with charm and art. Marketed as “The Art of Time Well Spent,” the Village of Kleinburg reflects the quaint ambiance of a turn-of-the-century town with modern accoutrements like a delightful Starbucks that attracts cyclists from around the GTA. Kleinburg is chock-a-block with one-off restaurants like Avenue Cibi e Vini, Avlyn Gardens Ristorante, Bellsito Trattoria, Chartreuse, Cookie Crumble Eatery and The Longchamp Pub. Wander the quaint village streets and discover its many unique shops and boutiques all in a lush forested setting where rolling hills and magnificent scenery forms the backdrop to life at a more relaxed pace.

Not far away, the famous Kortright Centre offers a tribute to conservation helping people understand, enjoy and look after the natural environment with a vision to create The Living City, where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature’s beauty and diversity. Close by, the well-loved McMichael Canadian Art Collection, home to Canada’s treasured Group of Seven masterpieces, offers programs and events for adults and children alike.

Kleinburg is home to the Binder Twine Festival, held yearly in the month of September. The tradition of the Binder Twine Festival originated with Charles Shaw Jr. who, in the 1890s, began selling binder twine to the local farmers. Binder twine was used to tie together sheaves of wheat. In appreciation for their business, Shaw gave his customers a modest dinner that eventually became a large community festival complete with games, refreshments and entertainment.

Like the community around it, Klein Estates is unique, with its own personality and style. Considered a bright beacon of creativity in a sea of architectural conformity, Klein Estates’ homes will blossom into beautiful streetscapes traversing delightful forests and rolling hills. This is a family neighbourhood where kids can experience a safe and happy childhood, where parents can enjoy all the trappings of a privileged lifestyle, where neighbours become friends and where life is good.

Klein Estates will be one not to be missed.


As one of three prestigious builders, Lindvest is shaping a stunning community of single-family homes called North Oakville. Located a short distance from the city’s Uptown Core, North Oakville is a one-of-a-kind community within a city that has been named the best place to live in Canada by MoneySense magazine. MoneySense gathered data on 415 cities across the country and ranked how they measure up in 10 categories – wealth and economy, affordability, population growth, taxes, commute, crime, weather, access to healthcare, amenities and culture. In an article published July 31, 2018 in MacLeans, Oakville was not only the best place to live overall, but “the best place for new Canadians, the third best place to retire and the fifth best place to raise a family.” Oakville placed in the top 25 per cent of all cities in six out of 10 categories.

Despite a growing population (recent census pegs Oakville at 200,000), it still retains its small-town charm. Which is a compelling reason for people looking for a detached home in a prestigious community to consider Lindvest’s North Oakville — opening later this fall.


Seventy-two beautiful townhomes ranging in size from 1,725 to 2,362 square feet are well on their way to completion in Lindvest’s Aurora Glen community. Priced from the mid $900,000s, these homes are conveniently located close to all of the amenities of Aurora.

This is a great place to live and raise a family. Aurora has been ranked in the top 10 of wealthiest towns in Canada. With four secondary schools and numerous elementary schools Aurora has outstanding choices. The highly prestigious St. Andrews College, a private independent school for boys, is also located in Aurora.

Aurora has a long history of theatre, with its own community theatre group, Theatre Aurora. The group currently produces five shows each year as well as two youth shows.

With only 23 homes available for purchase, be sure to watch for the model home unveiling set to take place this fall.


Lindvest will be offering new communities in Oakville and in Brantford.

At Kleinburg Summit, the Gallery on the Park executive townhomes are perfectly planned

Kleinburg is a town well known across Canada for its eclectic art galleries, including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, which features the largest selection of Canada’s famed Group of Seven. It seemed only fitting that in Mattamy’s community of Kleinburg Summit they would feature executive townhomes known as the Gallery on the Park Collection.

Over the years, Mattamy has learned a great deal about the art of architecture and the importance of nature in creating a wonderful environment in which to live, thrive and enjoy. In Kleinburg Summit‘s Gallery on the Park Collection, nature is bountiful.

These townhomes embody the best of modern living surrounded by an environment that is perfect for active people who like to run, hike and cycle. It’s equally as appealing to those who prefer to find a spot under a tree to read a book, or spread out a blanket and enjoy a family picnic. The streams, fields and forests are virtually right outside your front window. The idea is that you should be able to enjoy a stress-free zone right outside your front door.

In the Gallery on the Park Collection of executive townhomes, the art of architecture supports the need for functionality of space. The notion of “a place for everything and everything in its place” is more than a notion in these townhomes. They are, by design, perfectly planned to serve the needs of the people living in them.

There is a sense of openness in these executive townhomes, an organic flow of space that is both inspiring and comforting. And to ensure that you can make the interior your own, Mattamy offers a state-of-the-art Design Studio, staffed by professional design consultants who will assist in finding the countertops, cabinets, flooring, mouldings and tiles that make your home a complete reflection of your style.

You’ll also quickly discover that executive townhomes in Kleinburg Summit’s Gallery on the Park are never just another row of townhomes. They offer individual exterior designs so your home has individual character and the streets take on the character of a quaint village. These townhomes also offer enough space to park four cars.

Kleinburg Summit is right in the heart of the town so you can readily enjoy the local shops, fine restaurants and scenery, including the highly regarded Kortright Centre for Conservation. As you stroll the streets you will find a cordiality that is common in a small village. You’ll also find all of this while maintaining a connection to the city.

And, coming soon, there will be three detached Model Homes so you can examine the design thinking and superb craftsmanship in Kleinburg Summit’s homes.

Mattamy built their very first home in 1978. Since then, they have built more than 90,000 homes across Canada and the United States. In the GTA, they have the distinction of having earned an unprecedented seven BILD Homebuilder of the Year Awards, including last year.

The executive townhomes of Kleinburg Summit’s Gallery on the Park Collection offers your family the best of everything, inside and outside.

Gallery on the Park executive townhomes are priced from $799,990 and detached homes from $889,990.
