The future is now in Brampton

The future is now in Brampton

It’s one thing for a neighbourhood to be in transition, quite another for an entire city. But that’s precisely what’s happening in Brampton, where a concerted effort to bring the municipality into the future now, is yielding visible results.

In a city of about 600,000 – the third largest in the GTA and the ninth largest in Canada – Brampton has been booming for years. Consider, for example that current population is almost double what it was not even 20 years ago.

What’s attracting newcomers to Brampton in such numbers? In short – economic growth. Indeed, with major companies such as Loblaw Companies Ltd., Canadian Tire Corp., Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Ltd. and Rogers Communications Inc. having headquarters in the city, employment opportunities have been plentiful. Brampton’s economy in recent years has diversified to include sectors such as communications technologies, life sciences and business services.

Cybersecure catalyst

And even more recently, education. Just last month, for example, the City confirmed a collaboration with Ryerson University, outlining the required funding and resources needed for establishing the Ryerson University-led Innovation Hub and Cybersecure Catalyst in downtown Brampton. This includes the Chang School of Continuing Education expanding its cybersecurity courses; launching the Brampton Incubation/Innovation Hub; and the Cybersecure Catalyst, a new national centre for innovation and collaboration in cybersecurity.

“This is a very exciting move forward for Brampton, moving important projects with Ryerson University closer to reality,” says Mayor Patrick Brown. “These projects will help spur economic growth, create jobs and position Brampton as a hub for cybersecurity.”

Managing such growth requires planning, including the City’s Vision 2040, a long-term vision to reinvent Brampton. The plan includes such key transformations as including model new neighbourhoods; an improved transit network, new core loop, walking and cycling networks; better designed communities, handsome buildings; and sustainability built into everything.

Budgeting growth

Brampton’s 2019-21 budget proposal includes initiatives to that end, including increasing Brampton Transit’s fleet by 16 per cent over three years, adding 46 conventional buses and 25 Zum buses; creating a new Marketing and Foreign Direct Investment Program; and a Community Improvement Program to incentivize the economic sectors identified in Brampton’s Economic Development Master Plan.

It’s not all about business in Brampton, however. Proximity to nature also helps deliver quality of life in the city. Gage Park, Brampton’s oldest municipal park, opened in 1903; Heart Lake Conservation Area, occupying 169 hectares in the Etobicoke Creek watershed; and Chinguacousy Park, a 40-hectare park in the Bramalea section of town.

Mattamy Homes reports exceptional sales in Milton

Mattamy Homes Milton

In a clear sign that the fundamentals of the Toronto area real estate market remain strong, Mattamy Homes is reporting robust January sales results from the release of new lots in its Hawthorne South Village Sixteen Mile Creek community in Milton, Ont.

The Creekside Collection sold out all 180 lots released for sale on Jan. 19 (113 sales) and Jan. 26 (67 sales). Over the two days, Mattamy hosted 500 families hoping to secure a townhome or detached home featuring the company’s designs in its most awarded community ever. Buyer lineups began forming days before the Saturday openings, and by the end of both days, all available inventory had been sold out.

“While there is no doubt that the real estate market in the Greater Toronto Area has undergone change in the last 18 months, our sales results in Milton the past two weekends are telling a very positive story,” says Brad Carr, CEO of Mattamy Homes Canada. “What we’re seeing is that in the midst of this soft landing, there is definitely still strong demand driven by solid market fundamentals. We are pleased to see so many buyers recognizing the long-term value of home ownership and investing in their families’ future.”

The products available at the Creekside Collection comprise a variety of townhome and detached designs: Freehold Village Homes, two-storey townhomes and detached homes on 30-, 34-, 36- and 43-ft. lots.

Mattamy is also looking forward to seeing continued strong results with upcoming sales launches in Brampton (Feb. 2) and Oakville, as well as more releases to come in Milton.

Smart, energy-efficient homes of the future coming to Markham

Latest News


Smart, energy-efficient homes of the future coming to Markham

The City of Markham in partnership with Mattamy Homes and Enwave Energy Corp. have announced they will research and design a pilot neighbourhood of approximately 300 homes, serviced by a community-scale distributed geothermal energy system for heating, cooling, and domestic hot water. Grant funding has been provided by The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) for design activities. The TAF invests in urban climate solutions in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to reduce carbon emissions and air pollution.

The City of Markham has set out to become a net-zero emissions city by 2050. To achieve this ambitious target, the Municipal Energy Plan – Getting to Zero includes strategies for increasing and improving energy efficiency through implementing green technology, energy conservation and efficiency in all sectors of Markham. Markham will welcome Canada’s largest geothermal net-zero emissions community, which will have the potential to transform the residential housing market. The community’s heating and cooling system will be maintained, operated and delivered by Enwave Energy.

“This is first major step to achieving our goal of becoming net-zero water, waste and emissions community by 2050, and this one of many innovative initiatives you will see with development partners,” says Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti. “Markham is a municipal leader in energy conservation and management. This project will set the standard for a new way of thinking about how we generate and distribute energy in North America.”

Located in north Markham, the community will utilize deep wells up to 250 metres, allowing the community to tap into geothermal energy. Heating and cooling will be delivered at the neighborhood level through a single common ambient pipe buried underneath the community and connected to each home, similar to that of an electrical grid. The system will be maintained and operated by Enwave’s team of expert engineers, who will ensure the system is efficient and reliable.

This community scale model boasts several benefits to the consumer, including greater energy efficiency through optimization, increased energy savings to consumers, reduced maintenance burden and costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. All of these benefits will increase comfort and convenience for residents.

Upon completion of the pilot, the model may be applied to future phases of the Mattamy development. The best practices and lessons learned from this unique partnership will help advance geothermal community energy systems across the GTA and beyond.

Construction of this new community is expected to begin in 2020.

“Mattamy Homes is privileged to be a partner with the City of Markham and Enwave in this innovative project,” says Brad Carr, CEO, Mattamy Homes Canada. “This forward- thinking business model, where the burden of optimizing advanced heating and cooling equipment is transferred from the homeowner to a private entity, will contribute to job creation and drive innovation adoption in the housing industry. Mattamy has a long history of leadership in homebuilding innovation, and we see this partnership as clearly aligned with our sustainability and innovation strategy.”

Mattamy Homes is the largest privately owned homebuilder in North America, with a 40-year history of operations across the United States and Canada. Every year, Mattamy helps 7,000 families realize their dream of homeownership. mattamyhomes.com

GTA’s top builders and projects honoured at annual BILD Awards

GTA’s top builders and projects honoured at annual BILD Awards

GTA’s top builders and projects honoured at annual BILD Awards

Mattamy and Great Gulf named as GTA Homebuilders of the Year, Hugh Heron wins Lifetime Achievement Award.

The GTA’s home building and land development industry recognized its top builders, projects and marketing initiatives at the 38th annual BILD Awards on Friday, May 4, 2018.

More than 1,300 industry professionals attended the event, which honoured achievements in planning, design, sales, marketing and city building in 51 categories. A group of 30 expert judges from across North America determined the winners from more than 900 submitted entries.

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of BILD’s Lifetime Achievement Award to Hugh Heron, principal and co-founder of Heron Homes. This recognition is the association’s highest honour and was presented to Heron for his 50 years of leadership in the building and land development industry.

HOMEBUILDERS OF THE YEAR

Taking home the night’s most prestigious awards for Homebuilders of the Year were Mattamy Homes for Lowrise and Great Gulf for Mid/Highrise.

The Homebuilder of the Year titles recognize the builders who set the standard for the rest of the industry through their professionalism and dedication to excellence.

The winners are leaders committed to quality, caring for their customers and contribution to their community. A key component of the judging process is a customer satisfaction survey completed by the builders’ purchasers.

The Great Gulf Group has been in business for over 40 years and includes Great Gulf, Ashton Woods, First Gulf, H+ME Technology, and Tucker HiRise. It has grown into one of North America’s premier real estate organizations. They have built their reputation by continually seeking to marry design, technology and experience in exciting new ways.

Mattamy Homes is the largest privately owned homebuilder in North America with a nearly 40-year history of operations across the United States and Canada. The company started in 1978, building one home in Burlington. Today they have over 90,000 homeowners in hundreds of master-planned communities. Mattamy is continually in touch with each homeowner from the first touchpoint at their sales centre, to when a purchaser moves in, to long after they have settled into their new home.

Hugh Heron

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

For the past 50 years, Hugh Heron has been a “builder” in every sense of the word in the province of Ontario. Today, he is one of the most active and influential professionals in the new home industry, as well as an avid media spokesperson for the building and land development industry in the GTA.

In 1967, Heron came to Canada and got his first job with Costain, a company that he had worked for in Scotland. In 1979, Hugh went off on his own to co-found Heron Homes with a group that he is still in business with today. Heron’s building entities has gone on to build over 8,000 homes in 50 communities across Ontario and has built over 1,000,000 square feet of commercial and retail space.

“For 50 years Hugh has given back to the industry that gave so much to him and his family,” said Wilkes. “He has served in leadership positions at some of the industry’s most important institutions, including chair of the Ontario New Home Warranty Program, past president of both the Greater Toronto and Ontario Home Builders’ Associations, and former senior board member of Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation (CMHC).”

Heron is also well known for his community and charity work, establishing the Mikey Network in memory of Michael Salem, a partner at Herity who died of cardiac arrest on a golf course in June 2002. The Mikey Network helps place Mikeys (public access defibrillators) in schools, workplaces and public access areas across Canada. These defibrillators have been used to save 39 lives to date and many more to come.

“Hugh Heron’s goal has always been to make the new homebuyer feel comfortable during the building process,” said Wilkes. “Hugh has always made the journey of new homeownership a positive experience. When someone buys a home from Hugh and moves in, he makes sure they feel ‘Home at Last,’ ”’ said Wilkes with a smile.

TOP AWARDS

The People’s Choice Award, determined by members of the public through online voting, was awarded to CentreCourt Developments and SmartCentres for their Transit City development in Vaughan.

“People’s Choice is a unique award because it is the public that decide the winner,” said BILD president and CEO Dave Wilkes. “Nearly 6,000 people voted for projects that competed for the best in city building that demonstrated how the industry is providing a wide range of housing options for GTA homebuyers.”

For community building, BILD has two categories for outstanding projects that embody the province’s smart growth principles: Best New Community (Planned/Under Development) for a project currently planned or under construction; and Best New Community (Built) which recognizes a completed project.

The Daniels Corporation won Best New Community (Planned/Under Development) for Lighthouse Tower East, located at Lower Jarvis Street and Queens Quay East. For its work on Harbour Plaza and One York, Menkes Development won the award for Best New Community (Built).

The Berkley by Arista Homes took home the award for Best Innovative Home Design, which recognizes cutting-edge design in lowrise homes that increase buying choices for entry-level consumers.

Best Innovative Suite Design went to Collecdev’s Unit E8, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit that maximizes living space.

Curated Properties and Windmill Developments won the award for the Best Midrise Building Design for The Plant, which seeks to bring new standards of sustainability and urban agriculture to Queen West.

For their outstanding leadership in the implementation of green building practices, Dunshire Developments was named Green Builder of the Year, Lowise, and Tridel was named Green Builder of Year, Mid/Highrise.

The Project of the Year, Lowrise title went to TACC Developments, Arista Homes Limited, DECO Homes, Fieldgate Homes and OPUS Homes for their Richlands development in Richmond Hill, while Curated Properties and Windmill Developments’ The Plant was selected as the Mid/Highrise Project of the Year.

The award for Best Overall Marketing Campaign went to the team of Graywood Developments and Community for their campaign for Peter & Adelaide.

The Stephen Dupuis Humanitarian Award was given to The Daniels Corporation and the Riley Brethour Leadership Award was given to Andrea DeGasperis-Ronco of OPUS Homes.

For variety and location, Mattamy is right in your neighbourhood

Spring is a time of renewal. Nature is blooming. The sun is shining more often. The days are longer and warmer so it’s a perfect time to go searching for a new home. Where to begin?

Mattamy Homes is a great place to start. Whether you are searching for your very first home, or you need a larger home for a growing family, Mattamy can make the search very rewarding.

Since Mattamy built their first home in 1978, they have continuously brought innovation and architectural excellence to every home they build. Many of their communities are master-planned so families always have places to gather, playgrounds to visit and schools to attend within walking distance. Some communities also feature community centres, retail stores, ponds in the summer and skating rinks in the winter. Mattamy believes the community and your home should all be connected to create an enjoyable living experience.

A Mattamy community looks and feels different than other places. There are fewer homes per street so you don’t feel like you’re living in a cookie cutter environment. And the homes are offered in a variety of styles so each street has distinct character. Mattamy has always been an innovator in home design creating environments that simply make you feel right at home the instant you move in. They understand that open space allows for more fluid, free-flowing interaction.

Mattamy offers more choice in both exterior and interior finishes, so you can ensure the home you are buying is the home you always dreamed of. To personalize your home, Mattamy offers Architect’s Choice Options, which give homeowners an opportunity to make pre-approved structural changes before construction begins. These options are fully integrated into the home while under construction so you have the satisfaction of knowing that the home will be completely finished the way you want before you move in.

Mattamy’s state-of-the art Design Studios give their homeowners the choice to select every interior finish in your home. From granite countertops, backsplashes to trend-setting light fixtures, you will not be disappointed.
