Life is Greener at Queen's Landing
Minto Communities recently launched Townhome and Single home community in Queensville, East Gwillimbury, boasts energy-efficient homes featuring many high-performance, eco-conscious features designed to provide energy efficiency, conservation, water savings and healthier homes to live in. East Gwillimbury has been designated a municipality under the Province of Ontario’s Places to Grow Act, and is the first jurisdiction in Canada to mandate the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes qualification for all new residential developments with over 10 homes.
