A solid hit

Granite by Jayman BUILT sets a high stylish standard

Innovation has been the rock upon which Jayman BUILT has made its name, and their new townhome, Granite in Redstone, proves this once again.

The stylish, and creatively designed stacked townhomes of Granite in Redstone have been quite the hit in this young northeast community, selling 20 homes in the first phase. Considering that Granite in Redstone only launched this summer, and the tight competition in the townhome market especially in this neighbourhood, it really is something special.

“We’ve been so successful that we’re looking to move up the timeline for the start of phase two,” says Jaimie Steil, sales associate for Granite in Redstone.

“People have been quite impressed by the thoughtful use of space, even the one-bedrooms feel like they are much bigger than they are,” she adds.

Granite in Redstone is the first of its kind for Jayman BUILT. It is basically a development of six-plex buildings with two one-bedroom suites on the ground floor and four two- and three-bedroom three-level, attached-single-garage townhomes stacked on top of them along the corners.

“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’s one-bedroom, 599-square-foot Cecille starts at $175,000; a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Perola is from $258,539; and a three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath Venetian is from $244,900. All prices already include GST. “We have the price points that attract a lot of first-time home buyers, renters who would rather invest in a home they own,” Steil says.

Granite has proven to be especially appealing to buyers with extended families, who can now afford to live close to relatives and their familial support systems, but still be in separate households. “We’ve had a brother and sister buy separate units in one building and their parents are considering buying a one-bedroom in the same complex,” she adds.

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.” 

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. The newly opened show suites display a compelling contemporary design that has proven attractive to buyers.

“Many can see themselves living here, it appeals to their modern tastes,” Steil says. Nine foot ceilings, oversized windows, stone countertops and luxury vinyl plank floors all combine to create an appealing, contemporary home suited to today’s lifestyle.

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

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.

With all these going for it, it’s easy to see why Granite in Redstone has been such a big hit. To sweeten the pot further, Jamyan BUILT is giving buyers a limited time offer of free air-conditioners and free condo-fees for one year.
