The Clarkson Townhomes inspired by life on the GO

What if there was a place that felt like home but was changing right before your eyes? Clarkson Village is that place where you can unwind and relax, lounge or stroll. You’ll always find something exciting happening right around the corner.

In the heart of it all is The Clarkson Urban Towns by Haven Developments. Located in south Mississauga’s prestigious Clarkson Village at 2200 Bromsgrove Rd., this community will allow you to experience urban living to the fullest.

The Clarkson keeps you close to what’s important for everyday life. Conveniences like grocery stores and pharmacies make it easy to shop for much-needed essentials, including a new Loblaw’s pick-up location at the Clarkson GO Station. Become part of a growing community with a local scene of boutique shops, activities and restaurants.

These spacious and stylish townhomes inspire peaceful moments on your own or exciting celebrations with friends. Featuring meticulous attention to detail, a well-designed floorplan to maximize space, and luxurious interior finishes such as quartz, glass tile and options such as brushed gold accents to complete the look.

Haven Developments creates communities that complement and enrich the lives of homeowners. The company designs properties that feel like home and connect you to the city you love. Being connected is something Haven achieves in proximity to transit, nature, and amenities. In fact, one of its most distinctive philosophies is that it builds only in locations with superior access to transit.

At The Clarkson you’ll discover transit options that will quickly get you to your desired destination. With GO at your doorstep, get to Union Station in 25 minutes flat. Nearby highways take you through the GTA and beyond. Gain easy access to Toronto and Pearson International Airport.

GO Transit operates three train lines and several GO bus routes through Mississauga. MiWay is the primary bus operator with a dedicated and fast east to west bus-only roadway. MiWay’s routes connect with GO Transit commuter rail and intercity buses. The system also connects with Brampton Transit to the north, Oakville Transit to the west, York Region Transit (YRT) to the northeast, and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to the east.

Thanks to Loblaws and Metrolinx you can order groceries online and pick them up at the Clarkson GO Station on your way home from work, in time to prepare a fresh meal — just one of the many perks this location has to offer.

Most people have no idea how much greenspace Mississauga has. The outdoor enthusiast is sure to find their haven with miles of walking trails, boardwalks and a scenic cycling path along the Lakeshore. Discover the new Bromsgrove and Sheridan Creek trails across the street from The Clarkson.

The proximity to Port Credit, only a five-minute ride on the GO, is certainly a draw as Mississauga’s entertainment hub for shopping, dining and entertainment.

Streetsville Centre is like a village within a village

Canada’s sixth largest city has a long and varied history starting with Mississauga First Nations who lived in the Credit River valley — about 2,000 sites have so far been excavated in the area. Europeans came as early as the 1600s, but settlement didn’t start until 1805, when the British government entered trade talks with the Mississaugas. Through the 1800s, settlers took up residence along the major water systems – especially at the wide Credit River where it was relatively easy to transport essential goods such as lumber – and established the settlements of Clarkson, Cooksville, Erindale, Malton, Meadowvale, Port Credit and Streetsville.

Like Toronto with its neighbourhoods, Mississauga has distinct areas; the 13-kilometre Lake Ontario shoreline, bustling shopping centres and thriving commercial areas, highrise condo towers, dense lowrise neighbourhoods and quaint historic villages like Streetsville, with intact main streets and charming heritage storefronts.

The population of Streetsville has grown from 5,000 in the 1960s to about 50,000, with over half holding university or college degrees, 85 per cent owning their homes and an average household income of $124,255. And it’s young – the average age is 38, with a third of the population between 25 and 44.

Thanks to its thriving facilities – shops and restaurants, community facilities, entertainment, schools, parks and great housing – Streetsville is known as a community node within the city of Mississauga, which means it will be a focus of infrastructure growth in future.

Nestled on the Credit River, with parks and hiking trails, this hidden gem has excellent elementary and high schools in walking distance, community centres, and the village’s main street has all the services you need. Major shopping is a few minutes drive away at Erin Mills Town Centre, Square One, Dixie Outlet Mall and Sherway Gardens.

An integrated community with this kind of access is the foundation of quality living. According to Jay Walljasper, author of The Great Neighbourhood Book, one of the worst trends after World War II was to segregate houses from retail shops and places of work, leading to greater reliance on cars, which isolated people from each other. But modernism seemed to pass Streetsville by, and its charming main street vibe remains. Neighbourhoods like this are sought after because they’re more enjoyable and tend to encourage community building.

That sentiment resonates with John Zanini, president of Dunpar Homes, who actively seeks out land in existing neighbourhoods. He lives in a Dunpar home himself, appreciating the advantages of being close to coffee shops, bookstores and local parks where people tend to meet and gather.

The 201-unit development of Streetsville Centre is like a village within a village; streets are closed off from main thoroughfares, making it safe for children to play and go in and out of each other’s homes. People are comfortable being out and about, walking to the store, or strolling through the park, making it a safe place to live, and fostering a sense of community spirit.

Steps to the GO Transit station, it’s the perfect location for a commute to Toronto, and a five-minute walk will get you to the main street for retail shopping, dining and entertainment.

The exclusive community offers three-bedroom, spacious townhome designs that range from 1,500 to 1,875 square feet. Each one features a 240-square-foot rooftop patio, two-car garages, unmatched landscaping and a ton of standard luxury finishes like gourmet kitchens, luxury appliances, high quality construction, technology conservation and four levels of guarantees including two from Tarion. Prices start at $869,990.

Streetsville Centre

The ultimate in right-space living

For many, once they enter the empty nester stage of life, they also want a change of lifestyle – one that is simpler and less-encumbered with the day-to-day tasks of maintaining a large family home. Dunpar Homes has developed the perfect compromise at Streetsville Centre.

This 200-unit enclave of executive, back-to-back townhomes is located in the heart of Streetsville. It’s convenient location positions you close to everything, including the GO station (located right across the street), retail shops and restaurants on the main street and Streetsville Memorial Park, as well as easy access to Highways 401, 403 and the QEW. And for leisure and business travellers, Toronto Pearson International airport is a 10-minute cab ride.

RIGHT-SIZING

Rather than thinking of it as downsizing, refer to it as right-sizing. Studies show that we spend 80 per cent of our time in only 20 per cent of our homes – leaving lots of wasted space. Moving to a smaller, better laid out, home could put money in your retirement bank account.

The savings are significant, not only in terms of mortgage payments (if you still have them), but also as it relates to utilities, property taxes, insurances, etc. In addition, maintenance and upkeep costs, especially on older homes, can be exorbitant.

REDIRECTED PRIORITIES

With extra cash flow, you have the opportunity to travel more, to help out your children or grandchildren, to buy an alternate warm-weather condo, or add to your retirement portfolio. A diversified portfolio is always more attractive than one that ties up your equity in one bulk investment. As long as the house that you sold was your principal residence, the proceeds are tax-free, so the money is yours to do with as you wish. As with any big decision, it’s best to speak with your financial advisor.

When buying new, you want to be selective, and to make sure that you get exactly what you’re looking for. Your time is valuable, and you no longer need to be worried about mowing the lawn, shovelling the snow or exterior maintenance.

MORE TO GAIN

Homes here are spacious, and range in size from 1,500 to 1875 square feet. All have three bedrooms, two-car garages and well-proportioned principal rooms, as well as a roof top deck or a balcony off the kitchen. Prices start in the mid $800,000s, and include granite countertops, an under-mount kitchen sink, a frameless glass shower door in the ensuite, smooth ceilings and stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Dunpar insists upon having full control over the exterior architecture and landscape design in every one of their communities. As a result, a Dunpar community is recognizable. And while residents benefit from a maintenance-free lifestyle, they also are ensured of a good-looking community for years to come.
