Avonlea is the Place to Grow!

05/06/2011

The most prestigious awards for the new home building industry, the BILD awards, were handed out last Friday, and we took home one of the most anticipated awards of the night! Our community in Peterborough, Avonlea, won the award for Places to Grow Community of the Year for its forward-thinking planning, a combination of smart growth and new urbanism with green building initiatives.

The Places to Grow Act helps the Ontario government plan for growth in a coordinated and strategic way. We’ve created a community that helps sustain a robust economy, uses land and resources efficiently, and promotes a healthy environment. Walkability is one of the main principles of new urbanism, so Avonlea was designed to include all necessities within walking distance so you can walk to school, work or shops.  It’s great to be able to take public transit, and to live a more active lifestyle by walking or biking, instead of driving everywhere. The new urbanism principles help us create a sustainable community that provides an enhanced quality of life for you and your family.

It was a great evening at the 31st BILD Awards, and it was a great occasion to see everyone in the industry. I’d like to thank and share this award with MBTW Watchorn Architect Inc., MHBC Planning, Cole Engineering and BAM Builder Advertising & Marketing.

Many parks and parkettes are seen at Avonlea for families to enjoy quality time together.

We Did It Again!

As I mentioned last week, I was included as a finalist for EnerQuality’s Leader of the Year award this year, and I am happy to announce that I just won the award! I wish to thank all the homeowners that have purchased from us.  Thank you to all of the hardworking team at Mason Homes, all our great suppliers and our marketing team at BAM for their hard work. We look forward to another exciting year of green homebuilding as we turn 50 this year!
