Minto Communities GTA breaks ground on the award-winning “The Heights of Harmony” master-planned community in Oshawa
June 22, 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – Minto Communities GTA celebrated the groundbreaking on the first phase of The Heights of Harmony, the highly anticipated, master-planned community in North Oshawa’s Kedron neighbourhood. Spanning 97.5 acres, The Heights of Harmony is the developer’s second project in Oshawa, increasing much-needed family housing in one of Canada’s fastest growing communities and supporting multi-generational housing options. Building off the success in Markham’s Union Village, The Heights of Harmony also sets a precedent on how developers can successfully integrate Net Zero features and keep sustainability as a core value when building homes.

“Today, we realize our vision of bringing more housing options and supply for families, young couples, and first-time homebuyers to Oshawa and the Durham region. We are invested, and that’s because we believe in this community” says Vince Santino, Vice-President of Development, Minto Communities GTA. “We’re thrilled with the reception of The Heights of Harmony master-planned community to date and we’re looking forward to launching future phases in this idyllic location”.
Inspired by the rolling hills of the Kedron Farms, The Heights of Harmony’s first phase offers 20’ traditional townhomes, and single-family homes in 36' and 43’ in a variety of architectural styles, including the introduction of Minto Communities GTA’s brand-new Modern Farmhouse style. The Modern Farmhouse style is designed to feature a contemporary aesthetic, with large picture windows and contrasting architectural features. Notably, this exceptional community has been recognised as the recipient of the 2023 BILD award for Project of the Year (Low-Rise), a testament to its exceptional quality and design, Furthermore Minto Communities GTA garnered accolades as the Green Builder of the Year at both BILD and DRHBA 2023 underscoring their commitment to sustainable building practices.

A brand-new 28-acre park will anchor The Heights of Harmony community, bringing a strong sense of connection to nature for future residents. Other natural amenities include a community pond within walking distance of homes that is sure to draw neighbours, friends and family in for community building.
The Heights of Harmony phase one homeowners had the opportunity to include a Net Zero upgrade to their home purchase, improving comfort, performance, and enabling homes to create as much energy as they consume over a calendar year. Building on the developer’s history of innovation and sustainable values for over 65 years, this upgrade helps reduce emissions by an astounding 85%.
