This is my vision of the modern sustainable community. Building communities that are about effective designs, green wellness and sustainable living. It’s all about savings by design. This is where I share our story about changing the way we build communities. Join us and take this opportunity to do something better. Subscribe now to get all the latest Sean Blogs.
Well, it’s that time of year again! Not only are we celebrating the holiday season, but we’re also bidding adieu to the year 2014 and ushering in the year 2015. When it comes to where you’ll be ringing in the New Year, there are many great choices – here are a few options in the wonderful City of Barrie.
The evolution of Sean Homes thus far has been a journey that I’m extremely proud of. From conceptualization to preview opening, there have been many challenges I’ve faced – such as my re-zoning efforts over the summer – which have all been overcome. Sean Homes is all about forward-thinking development, and this type of development can only be achieved with the buy-in and cooperation from multiple stakeholders. I’ve committed myself to building a pedestrian-friendly, healthy, active community in the heart of Barrie, and I’m excited (and thankful) that this will become a reality. I’ve always said that if builders and municipal agencies work together instead of at opposite sides of the table we can build better homes for the people who really matter – the people who live there.
I recently updated my website with a full site plan, which you can now see once you register. As you’ll instantly notice there are seven different home styles for you to choose from – each with a different layout to fit your lifestyle. Fresh, Comfort, Savvy, Active, Smooth, Cool and Shift all range in size from 1276–1692 sq. ft. They also start at just $224,990, which is an amazing price when compared to other homes of this size/quality.
The City of Barrie has lofty plans to develop on the ‘annexed’ Innisfil land immediately south of the city – but there is one hitch. Before the city is allowed access to land, it must increase its population by 40%, as per the Provincial Growth Plan. The Growth Plan sets out minimum density targets of between 150 and 400 residents and jobs combined per hectare for each urban growth centre that must be met by 2031. In this case, a population of 210,000 and the employment of 101,000 people is what Barrie needs to achieve.
