Our newest community

Unity Square completes a vision put forward by Dr. Avi Friedman and the municipality of Middle-sex Centre. The site design inspires a meaningful human connection between residents, the surrounding community and the outdoor environment.

Communities that bring
neighbours together.

The importance of design

We spend a lot of time in the design phase of our projects. For us design is not just a drawing of a building, home or community. It is about thinking critically and strategic about all aspects of a project from the big ideas to the smallest of details. Design has value and we use it to differentiate and support the lifestyle of residents that live in our communities.

The Walkable Community

Our community designs always try to make connections between people and the surrounding environment. Walking is just one of the benefits of making these connections. The result is a healthier, more vibrant and engaged community. There are many design factors influencing the walkability of a community and designing for walkability is important part of Design For Happiness.
