Strategic Location and Accessibility

The proposed development is in a strategic location within the Built-up Area, close to Downtown Galt and the Urban Growth Centre. This ensures efficient utilization of vacant land and promotes residential intensification. In addition, residents can enjoy increased connectivity and convenience with easy access to various amenities, such as Ainslie Street Terminal, public schools, recreational facilities, and the Cambridge-Paris Trail Corridor.

The development will offer 991 residential units with various unit sizes and bedroom options, catering to a diverse population. In addition to the diverse unit typologies, the project will contribute five units at an average price of $500,000 for affordable housing purposes, totalling a $2.5 million donation. This will help accommodate various household sizes, incomes, and an aging population.

High-Quality Architectural Design and Compatibility

The high-quality architectural design of the proposed buildings incorporates modern character with geometric patterns, clean lines, and large windows. The design considers the scale, physical character, and context of the surrounding low-density residential neighbourhood while ensuring compatibility. In addition, the buildings will frame the streetscape, provide views toward the Grand River, and utilize the site topography strategically to mitigate noise, block wind, and minimize privacy concerns.

Promotion of Active Transportation and Complete Communities

The development will provide 693 bicycle parking stalls and integrate a public pedestrian walkway/staircase and parkette, encouraging active transportation and fostering connectivity between the development and the surrounding neighbourhood. Promoting a high-density development that supports active transportation and transit viability will contribute to creating complete communities and help local commercial businesses by increasing clientele.

More Amenities

Landscaped Rooftop Deck

A landscaped rooftop deck on top of the seventh storey is proposed to add visual interest to the façade while offering ample space and separation between the buildings. The rooftop deck will serve as an outdoor amenity space for residents, providing a place to relax, socialize, and enjoy beautiful views. The strategic placement of the deck maximizes the use of available space and enhances the overall living experience for future residents.

Indoor Amenity Spaces and Public Parkette

The development will feature indoor amenity spaces on Floors 2 and 3, offering residents a comfortable and convenient area for leisure and recreation. A public parkette is also proposed at 62 Highman Avenue, providing outdoor amenity areas for residents and the surrounding community. The parkette will feature connections to a pedestrian stairscape, with viewing platforms and a rail for pushing bikes. This addition will improve walkability and accessibility to nearby facilities, fostering a sense of community and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Proximity to Transit and Bicycle Parking

The development is situated near Ainslie Street Terminal, public schools, and recreational facilities, making it an optimal location for higher residential density. In addition, the development will support existing transit options by providing an abundance of bicycle parking stalls, totalling 693 spaces. This emphasis on active transportation options will minimize negative impacts on air quality and climate change while promoting a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle for residents. Furthermore, the public pedestrian pathway will increase accessibility to the nearby facilities, fostering a connected and vibrant neighbourhood.

Buying a Pre-construction Property

How It Works

Step 1 - research and select a project icon image

Step 1: Research and Select a Project

Before diving into pre-construction properties, conducting thorough research on various projects and neighbourhoods is crucial to find the one that aligns with your needs and preferences. Assess factors such as location, amenities, and future developments in the area. You can consult with a knowledgeable real estate agent, browse online listings, or attend developer presentations to gather essential information about prospective properties..

Step 2 - get pre-approval icon image

Step 2: Secure Financing and Pre-Approval

Once you've identified the perfect pre-construction project, it's time to arrange your finances. First, consult with a mortgage broker or financial institution to obtain pre-approval for a mortgage, which provides a clear understanding of your budget and the amount you can afford. This step is crucial as it ensures a smoother purchasing process and confirms your eligibility for financing when the time comes to close the deal.

Step 3 - Reserve unit and sign APS icon image square

Step 3: Reserve Your Unit and Sign the Agreement

After finalizing your preferred project and securing financial pre-approval, it's time to reserve your desired unit. You'll be required to sign an Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) with the developer, which includes crucial information about the property, such as the purchase price, deposit structure, and closing date. It's essential to have a real estate lawyer review the APS to ensure your interests are protected and to understand any additional terms and conditions.

Step 4 - Closing icon image square

Step 4: Monitor Construction Progress and Prepare for Closing

As your pre-construction property takes shape, staying informed about the construction progress and any potential changes to the closing date is vital. Regular communication with the developer or real estate agent can keep you updated on the project's status. Then, as the closing date approaches, finalize your mortgage, conduct a pre-delivery inspection, and prepare for the closing costs and adjustments. Once everything is in order, you'll be ready to take possession of your brand-new property in Ontario!
