Hickory and Dunlop

Habitat for Humanity GTA is thrilled to announce an extraordinary opportunity to plant your roots in a vibrant, affordable community, nestled in the charming central district of Whitby. Imagine living in a place where the pulse of the city is just a leisurely stroll away—where schools, parks, and a variety of shops await to enrich your family’s life.

Starting in 2025, Habitat GTA will build 40 affordable homes at Hickory Street South and Dunlop Street East. These homes will offer families the utmost convenience, just minutes from essential amenities:

  • A 5-minute drive to the Whitby GO station, a gateway to the Greater Toronto Area.
  • Highway 401 is just around the corner, making commutes a breeze.
  • Whitby’s picturesque waterfront beckons for weekend family adventures, all within a 5-minute journey.

Each residence is thoughtfully designed to cater to the dynamics of family life, featuring:

  • Family-sized interiors that breathe warmth and togetherness.
  • A full suite of modern appliances to elevate your daily living.
  • Convenient parking to welcome you home each day.
  • Access to the outdoors with an outdoor space.
  • Access to a brand-new community space right on your doorstep.

At Habitat for Humanity GTA, we’re building homes that working families can afford. A typical Habitat GTA Partner Family earns a solid household income, but still cannot afford to buy a home in the real estate market because of the barriers of sky-high downpayments and mortgages. If this sounds like your family, we’d love to partner with you so you can have a home of your own. Learn more about this partnership between Habitat GTA and the Town of Whitby in our joint News Release.
