As housing prices increase, the thought of saving a down payment for a home can be daunting, especially for younger generations just entering the job market.

When developing the brand concept for District Condos’ 139 Market, we decided we wanted to tap into the artistic community that the Exchange is known for.

To capture the feeling we get when roaming through the streets of the Exchange and visiting our favourite local hangouts, we thought we would incorporate a local artist’s work inspired by the area, rooting our branding in the community we know and love.

We've been busy over at Parkline Townhomes in South Osborne - so much so  that we haven't had the chance to share photos from our display suites until now! The Panorama display is a first-of-its kind for us, featuring a separate, contained income suite in the basement as a mortgage helper.

We'll help get you up to speed so you feel confident getting in early, and reaping all the rewards.

We are now releasing our most affordable floorplan at Hudson, the Champlain, a two-bedroom, two-storey townhome starting as low as $241,900 including GST. These thoughtfully laid-out townhomes maximize space with a large master, second bedroom or office, one-and-a-half baths, and multi-functional living space for lounging and dining.

That winter cold is upon us, which beyond the implication of parkas and driving away with your car still plugged in, also means increased energy bills to keep your home a cozy haven from the frigid temps.
