This project is the third and final Phase of a themed subdivision in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The overall project is a 19 hectare infill development of approximately 236 residential units including single family, semis, and townhouse blocks. Phase 3 includes 80 single family residential units, a community multi-purpose pathway, a new stormwater management pond, and the extension of an existing municipal road external to the site.

The Highlights

• The main challenge on the project was to accelerate the approvals schedule to begin construction within 6 months of a December Draft Plan Approval. Counterpoint facilitated this goal in three ways.

• The first was to initiate detailed design while the draft plan approval process was still underway. Counterpoint made a comprehensive first submission before the appeal period for draft plan approval had even expired.

• Next, we met with City staff and the local conservation authority and secured MOE sign-off on first submission. 

• Finally, we followed up continually with the MOE review staff. These efforts resulted in full MOE approvals exactly 6 months after the Draft Plan Approval appeal period expired.

The Result

The SITE WAS Constructed to base asphalt during the fall of 2015 and house construction is ongoing through 2016-2017.
