Highlands of York Region (Meadows of East Gwillimbury)

- by Tercot Communities, Cityzen Developments & Fortress Real Developments

Tercot Communities, Cityzen Development Group and Fortress Real Developments are planning a 91-unit single-detached housing development in East Gwillimbury; the combined property includes the assembly of three land parcels off 2nd Concession Road, north of Doane Road. The singles will feature lots with approximately 38’ of frontage, and the homes envisioned will average 2,100 sf for an average price of just over $800,000. The scheduled release of these homes would take place in late 2017 or early 2018, depending on municipal approvals.

The extension of Highway 404 has made transportation to East Gwillimbury much easier, and the town that much more desirable. We expect sales and pricing to remain strong over the next three to five years in the municipality.

East Gwillimbury is one of the hottest markets for new development right now. More buyers are looking north in search of the coveted single-detached home as evidenced by the very popular Queensville and Queenslanding developments located a few minutes away from our site.
