Symphony Towns has broken ground on a 212 town home development lot in Oshawa.
Members from Marlin Spring and Greybrook Realty Partners gathered recently along with local city councillors and other individuals, consultants and financiers for the event.
“This community will feature family-size townhouse homes that will be nestled in a thriving, mature existing neighbourhood within minutes from GO and VIA rail stations and from Highway 401, 407 and 412,” says Pedro Lopes, senior vice president of developments at Marlin Spring.
“Symphony Towns continues to exceed expectations and this is as much a result of the team’s capabilities and efforts, but also a show of the resilience and fortitude of the city of Oshawa and region of Durham.”
Symphony Towns features two and three-story townhomes with ample backyard space, and centered around a charming parkette.
Located at Harmony Road and Taylor Avenue in Oshawa’s Parklands community, the development will include a centrally located park named The Dale Hawerchuk Park, in memory of the local professional hockey player and NHL Hall of Fame member.
Ward 2 Regional and Oshawa City Councillor Tito-Dante Marimpietri attended the event noting the significance of the location and tribute to the memory of Hawerchuk.
“This was the site of Donovan High School which was Dale Hawerchuk’s high school. He was honoured beyond belief to be from Oshawa,” he says.
Hosup Lee, vice president of asset management at Greybrook Realty Partners says the City of Oshawa continues to position itself as an important economic centre as well as an “attractive place to live, work and play” through its active and strategic economic development initiatives and city planning.
“With this milestone we are one step closer to delivering our Symphony Towns development to the local community, helping to meet the strong housing demand the city continues to experience,” he says.
