Developer Howland Green is building a reputation for their growing portfolio of energy-efficient developments in the Greater Toronto Area's suburban municipalities. The developer's projects are known for their "beyond net-zero" stance on building housing, evidenced in their six existing residential communities in Markham and Milton, as well as their latest project to enter marketing, dubbed Milton's Bronte West Condominiums.
To rise at Bronte Street and Derry Road, the six-storey, Keith Loffler McAlpine Architects-designed building will implement a number of energy efficiency features that go above and beyond provincial guidelines. Energy efficiency measures begin at construction with a specially-engineered insulated concrete form system, a type of concrete formwork that stays in place as a permanent building component after forming is complete.
Another one of these features is evident in the building's design, with the site plan and exterior rendering showing an array of photovoltaic solar panels similar to those seen in other Howland Green developments. Beyond the surface, there is much to unpack when reviewing the extensive list of energy efficiency features, and we'll be returning for a closer look in the coming months.
The project offers 132 condominium suites priced from $533,500 to $813,500, ranging from 1,078 ft² to 1,607 ft² in area and available in two and three-bedroom layouts. Residents will have access to a selection of amenities on the ground floor, including a private party/amenity room equipped with a kitchen, a games room, a fully equipped fitness facility, and a yoga studio.
More amenities will be found on the grounds surrounding the building, with a garden, a playgound, a gazebo and a barbecue area with landscaping designed by Cosburn Nauboris Landscape Architects.
