Granite provides the foundation for families to build

Every home needs a strong foundation, and the bedrock for families has always been finding the right home. Jayman BUILT’s latest townhome, Granite in Redstone, has been specifically designed to answer the needs of families — even extended ones — and offer a lifestyle for the modern age.

Townhomes have been traditionally viewed as starter homes for singles or couples, and as a downsizer home for empty-nesters and retirees. But Jayman BUILT has always been at the cutting-edge of innovation and they have found a way to design townhomes to suit a family’s needs. Yes, even for extended families and multi-generational ones.

Enter, Granite in Redstone, Jayman BUILT’s first stacked townhome offering that is designed to have members of your extended families living within six feet from your door.

“Historically, Jayman BUILT has built row townhomes and four-storey wood-frame condos,” says Chris Johnstone, Senior Project Manager and Owners Representative at Jayman BUILT. He points out the Granite stacked townhomes hits the sweet spot between these two products.

“Essentially stacked townhomes offer the ease and convenience of townhome living with apartment-condo pricing,” he tells Condo Living.

Granite boasts stacked townhomes with one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with attached garages in sizes ranging from 990 to 1,045 square-feet. “They are arranged in configurations that allow all generations of families to be close by,” Johnstone says. “A family with their young kids can be living on the townhome above, while their parents can be living in the unit below.”

Granite also offers dual master bedroom townhomes that allows for parents to live with their adult children in one household.

Granite, which launches this summer, will have 174 stacked townhomes budget-friendly enough for single professionals, couples and downsizers to afford. One-bedroom models start from $184,800 and two- and three-bedroom townhomes are from $265,650 plus GST.

Johnstone says the name Granite was chosen as a symbol of strength. “The foundation that a family is built upon. All of our floor plans are named derived from different types of granite. Cecille is a one-bedroom flat. While Perola and Venetian showcase both two- and three-bedroom opportunities.”

Granite is perfect for families “at all stages of life — new families with young children, starting out,” he adds. “Even extended families wanting to live close together.”

Despite its affordability, Jayman BUILT did not skimp on features for these townhomes. All feature high-efficiency, on-demand hot water and fan coil for heating, increased insulation that keeps each townhome warm, and cool too, Johnstone says.

Hardie panel and lap siding with triple pane low-e inert filled windows are used to create a contemporary exterior profile that’s efficient, sturdy and stylish. “Top-of-the-line sound attenuation keeps everything quiet,” he adds.

Residents will also enjoy a courtyard featuring large communal play field, a playground, integrated social space featuring barbecues and fire pit, pergolas and benches.

Everyone will get a chance to experience Granite’s innovative, contemporary design focused on community and family living when they open show suites this June showcasing their five floorplans.

Redstone is also just the right neighbourhood for this kind of townhome, as the progressive Qualico Communities’ development in the northeast, has fully embraced its multicultural appeal. Redstone has attracted plenty of immigrant families whose cultures welcome extended family members living in one household.

Redstone itself has a story to tell for its amazing appeal to families from all walks of life. “It is an amazing location, with close access to transit and a future LRT and future commercial site. Amenities for all families, in all stages of life, some 2.3 kilometres of pathways, Participark outdoors exercise spots for everyone to enjoy, and close proximity to Costco and Cross Iron Mills mall, not to mention the employment hubs of the northeast,” he adds.
