Leading GTA homebuilders partner to deliver Downsview Park
TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Urbancorp and Mattamy Homes - two of the Greater Toronto Area's leading home-building companies - are pleased to announce that they have entered into a joint-venture partnership to build the Downsview Park community. The project is a 63-acre master-planned community on the former military base located in the centre of the Greater Toronto Area and home to one of the largest parks in Toronto, as well as surrounding amenities already in place.
The project consists of 487 common element and stacked townhomes, 29 single-family homes and approximately 550 mid-rise apartment units. The community and homes are being designed and built to LEED™ sustainability and energy efficiency standards.
"Urbancorp and Mattamy Homes are partnering to bring to life what we believe will be a very special community - THE premier urban neighbourhood in the heart of central Toronto," says Alan Saskin, President of Urbancorp.
"At Mattamy we are extremely excited about the opportunity the future holds with this community and working on such a unique and compelling project with our new partner Urbancorp," says Brad Carr, President, Canada with Mattamy Homes. "We are looking forward to bringing the Downsview project to life and helping the community reach its full potential."
The Downsview Park sales centre has been temporarily closed so that necessary refinements can be made.
