    We're working on the interior of these homes now. Volunteers will be onsite this spring and summer to help us complete Phase 1 and get ready to start Phase 2 of this project. Lots of help will be needed through the rest of 2017 to get Phase 2 of this project underway – another 15 homes to be built!

    Awaiting building permit approval for Habitat GTA's biggest home build in it's history- 50 townhouse units at 140 Pinery Trail. This build is right around the corner from our 6-unit McLevin build and from our earlier 36-unit "McLevin Woods" build that was completed almost a decade ago.

what we’re building

We’re excited to be building homes in east Scarborough for 15 families in the first of a three year, three phase, 50 home project. We've been approved to build a 50-unit townhouse development:
  • There are three, three-storey stacked townhouse buildings with a total of fifty ownership units.
  • There will be 80 new trees and hundreds of additional shrubs and perennials planted throughout the site. A common outdoor amenity space will be located within the eastern portion of the site and each unit will have a modest private outdoor amenity area.
  • To minimizing the noise and light from vehicle movements, we'll install an interior private driveway.
  • 70 parking spaces will be provided. 42 spaces are located at grade at the north end of the property; 28 are in an underground garage beneath Phase 3.
We're committed to keeping the community informed about our plans and build schedule. Check back for frequent project updates and to view our build progress on our live webcam, courtesy of UCITOnline. support this build
