The hum of machinery at Georgian Sands is constant these days as Elm’s construction team prepares the Phase 1 area of the huge site, the first step before roads can go in and building can start on over 250 townhomes and single family homes. In this first stage of work, articulating landscapers, giant machines that can travel as fast as 33 miles an hour, scrape ground material and move it into dump trucks. So far these megamachines have shifted about 100,000 dump truck loads’ worth of material or about 80,000 cubic metres. Once the ground is prepared, the next step is site servicing, putting in water and septic systems, natural gas and electrical systems. Roads will follow, then individual lots will be prepped for excavation. Every step brings us closer to realizing the first homes of Georgian Sands.
When construction is finished, the first phase of this spectacular master-planned community will be on display. A walk along the new streets will take you past homes that reflect a palette of colours drawn from nature and architecture that pays homage to the beach, earth and sky of Georgian Bay. You’ll see single family homes and townhomes with backyards, rear lane towns with terraces. Inside the homes are a range of designer-crafted floorplans featuring highlights like open concept kitchens and great rooms, home offices, mudrooms, second-floor and main-floor master retreats. No wonder Phase 1 (see streetscape below) sold out quickly. The good news is that Phase 2 is now open for registration. Don’t delay!
