The site will also include proposed commercial and office space, a community trail, three wetland areas, and a large community park.

“It is incredibly exciting to finally be launching this project and all it has to offer to those looking to purchase a new home in this vibrant community,” Terra View Homes president David Brixsaid in a statement on Tuesday. “We’re looking forward to bringing this unique addition to the Guelph residential market.”

The development will include Terra Condos, scheduled to break ground in the coming months.

“Terra Condos is set to be one of the first of its kind in Canada—a modern, socially responsible boutique condo building that leaves zero carbon footprint by drawing on green power from solar and geothermal energy sources,” the statement says.

The Terra condo building will encompass four storeys with 15 customizable two-bedroom condo suites in addition to one two-bedroom plus a den suite, the statement says.
