What do Metro Towns offer?


Metro Towns are a testament to our ongoing commitment to provide better homes – homes where people can not only live but thrive. Metro Towns will offer an entry-level price point so that buyers have the opportunity to get into the market and enjoy a wonderful, modern lifestyle outside of the traditional high-rise or mid-rise condominium suites that are so prevalent. Instead of a set list of building amenities, Metro Towns provide access to neighbourhood amenities like parks, multi-use-pathways, and a variety of nearby urban amenities, giving owners financial flexibility to choose how they’d like to spend their money.

Peace of Mind

Typically, homeowners are responsible for the maintenance of their home’s exterior – meaning lawn care, snow removal, repairs, and everything in between rests on them. Metro Towns on the other hand, have maintenance fees associated with them – meaning that all these tasks are covered. Owners here don’t have to worry about this upkeep and can rest assured that no matter what they’re up to, their home will always look good.

Modern, Thoughtful Design

Metro Towns are a brand new condo product. As such, these homes are built with one dwelling on the bottom and the other above; however, each homeowner enjoys their own private entrance that faces the street. 

Explore The Union and The Leaside, both floorplans offering stunning open-concept 2-bedroom floorplans, 3-piece bathrooms, washer/dryer and ample storage space, Metro Towns give owners room to live and great flexibility. These homes open up to accommodate many different lifestyle needs, providing enough space for everything from growing families to roommates, with the Optional Ensuite Flex Plan available in the Union Floorplan option.

The upper unit, the Union, will enjoy a generously-sized balcony, while lower-level Leaside unit have a large ground-level patio, with plantings and greenery for privacy, to encourage lots of outdoor living.

Underground parking, a selling point often only available to high-rise condominiums, will also be available for certain Metro Towns. Imagine all the time and effort saved during those winter months.

Significant attention has also been paid to the exteriors of our Metro Towns homes. Elegant brickwork interplay with sophisticated masonry, contributing to a refined streetscape in any community. These exterior features elevate the pedestrian realm, but they also give longevity to your investment and offer durability.
