Congratulations to Geranium Homes, which had an outstanding showing at the 34th Annual BILD (Building Industry and Land Development Association) Awards held in April.

The award recognizes the builder that best exemplifies Ontario’s Places to Grow Act, through which the provincial government plans for growth in a coordinated and strategic way. BILD’s P2G Award recognizes the community that represents the best example of smart growth, environmental preservation, innovative site planning, recreational amenities, streetscapes and architecture.

For Geranium Homes, The Neighbourhoods of Cardinal Point epitomizes the many facets which contribute to quality of life for our home buyers,” said Boaz Feiner, President of Geranium Homes.

Cardinal Point was envisioned as a 100-acre master-planned community within walking distance of Stouffville’s thriving Main Street and convenient to public transportation including GO services, cultural and recreational amenities in the town. The plan includes almost 30 acres of ravine with walking trails that connect the many residential phases, now totalling 800 homes. There is a large central neighbourhood park as well as two smaller parks.
