had their grand opening this past weekend for a new upscale subdivision in Woodbridge
on the 10-acre site of the former Reeves Garden Centre.
The model home, showily designed by Flora di Menna Design
(in the middle of its otherwise typically advertorial prose, the National Post
's real estate section's description of the interior mentioned that "Tony Montana would approve"), is finished near Islington and Highway 7.
"It is an infill piece," says construction manager Elisa Pennino, "where it's surrounded by an existing, very mature residential area, which was eye-catching to us."
The project is being built on 34 lots, with frontages of 60, 65 and 70 feet, with depths between 157 and 160 feet. The target demographic, according to Pennino, is 40 to 60-year-old Woodbridge locals.
Prices range from $1.3 to $1.8 million for houses between 3,800 and 5,800 square feet. The architect is Hunt Design
of Richmond Hill. Construction is set to begin in April or May, and Pennino expects the first closing to be December, 2011.
