The Village at Griesbach named as a finalist for 2012 Awards of Excellence in Housing

EDMONTON, Feb. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Canada Lands Company is pleased to announce that its Village at Griesbach community has been selected as a finalist in five categories of the 2012 Awards of Excellence in Housing presented by the Canadian Home Builders' Association (Edmonton Region).

"It's an honour to be recognized as a finalist", says Marvin Neumann, Director of Real Estate at Canada Lands Company in Edmonton.  "The Village at Griesbach is a unique 620-acre master planned community that offers so much character, including spectacular lifestyle amenities and inspired architecture in home choices."

Mark Laroche, President and CEO of Canada Lands Company, adds:  "Our Company is committed to achieving commercial success and applying sustainable development principles to meet the highest environmental standards. We are proud to bring beautiful new homes to residents, while honouring the proud history of Canada's military in Edmonton."

The Village at Griesbach was once home to Canada's most distinguished military regiments, officers and personalities. In 2005, following consolidation of Canadian Forces activities, the Griesbach lands began an amazing transformation into one of the most beautiful and award winning residential neighbourhoods in the City, redefining the way people perceive community planning.

The Village at Griesbach has been designated a finalist in the following categories: Best Subdivision; Best Website; Best Community Entrance; Best Development Landscaping and Amenities; and Best Home Parade.

The winners will be announced at a gala event to be on March 17, 2012 at the Shaw Conference Centre.
