Published September 6, 2023 at 9:00 am

The reigning BILD Project of the Year launched its second phase this month in north Oshawa.

Minto Communities and The Heights of Harmony, which earned the title for Phase 1 of the master planned community in Oshawa’s Kedron neighbourhood, unveiled 168 townhomes in Phase II, with flexible floorplans and a variety of architectural styles amidst a new parkette, giving residents a sense of peaceful living while enjoying the convenience of urban amenities.

Situated just north of Phase I, The Heights of Harmony Phase II is located off Harmony Road North, with both phases spanning more than 46 acres. The project will boast about 800 homes when complete.

The versatility of the homes available provides options for first time homebuyers with back-to-back and rear lane townhomes starting in the $600s, with homes ranging from 1,349 sq. ft to 1,628 sq. ft. with two- and three-bedroom options.

Emphasizing versatility and value, Phase II offers back-to-back townhomes and rear lane townhomes with flexible floorplans to accommodate different needs. Ideal for first time homebuyers and growing families, the back-to-back townhomes start in the $600s and range from approximately 1,349 sq. ft. to 1,628 sq. ft., featuring two- and three-bedroom options with front car garages and balconies.

Townhomes start in the $800s for larger families and begin at 1,886 sq. ft., featuring front yards, double car garages and big driveways. Homebuyers have the opportunity to upgrade and select from flex plans to meet their needs, including the option to include ground-floor bedrooms and other adaptable features in some models.

“It was important for Minto Communities to support multi-generational housing options at a time where housing flexibility is in demand” says Minto Communities GTA Vice-President of Development Vince Santino. “With Phase I, we saw that flex options gave new homebuyers piece of mind when it came to meeting their current and future housing needs. With the launch of Phase II, our commitment to bringing these housing options to Durham Region continues. We have a strong pipeline of well-designed homes and look forward to bringing them to market, meeting population targets and growing this incredible community.”

In Phase II, purchasers will have their selection of townhomes in different sizes and designs, including offerings in the Pine and Laurel collections, and choice between the Canadiana, Contemporary, and Modern Farmhouse elevations.

“Phase II truly exemplifies our commitment to innovative design and versatility” says Matthew Brown, Minto Communities GTA’s Director of Product Development. “We take pride in creating homes that not only meet the needs of our homebuyers but exceed their expectations.”

Future residents of The Heights of Harmony Phase II will be able to take advantage of sustainable features such as Energy Star for New Homes certification, enabling approximately 20 per cent better energy efficiency. The townhomes will also feature a high performance envelope that will reduce heating and cooling needs and provide a consistently comfortable temperature throughout the home.

The Heights of Harmony was the recipient of the 2023 BILD Award for Project of the Year (Low-Rise) and the 2023 DRHBA’s Excellence in Semi-Detached or Townhomes under 2,000 sq. ft. Award, a testament to its exceptional quality and design.
