Allotted single family homes
Over 1,000 single-family homes have been allotted for Carriage Lane Urban. The majority of these will have front-access driveways and garages. Located on large lots, these homes will also feature unique architectural features and trimmings, crafting a truly unique homeowning experience.
For the most diverse neighbourhood possible, several hundred homes have been planned on more affordable lots. These smaller lots will feature either front or back lane access. With no garages on these properties, residents will have more yard space for their families to enjoy.
Carriage Lane Urban aims to provide an affordable neighbourhood for everyone. This means offering a number of diverse housing options. From duplex lots to apartments and condos, Carriage Lane Urban has a home for every family, no matter the size or lifestyle.
Medium-density homes are planned for the west side of the development. Homes in this area will include duplexes, semi-detached lots, and townhouses.
High-density living is also proposed for Carriage Lane Urban. These high-density homes will include both apartment complexes and condominium. For optimal convenience, these apartments and condominiums will be located directly next to the local commercial district.
On the western border of Carriage Lane Urban, a two-hectare neighbourhood commercial site has been designed. This space will serve as a convenient commercial area. Retail shops, including speciality shops, gas bars, and small, local stores, may be built in this location.
Businesses in this area will be able to leverage the nearly 4,500 Carriage Lane Urban residents, as well as those situated in Carriage Lane Estates. Besides providing an accessible retail shopping experience, local businesses can establish their companies in this commercial district.
Greenspaces & Amenities
The best communities leave space for the great outdoors. With just over 100 acres of land dedicated to open space, Carriage Lane Urban is a place where the convenience of urban living is never prioritized over the love of adventure.
Several hundred of our single-family homes are expected to back onto green space, promoting the greatest sense of peace and quiet within this truly urban community. And, with tree-lined streets and gorgeous winding pathways leading throughout the neighbourhood, Carriage Lane Urban retains its rural roots.
A school has also been allotted in Carriage Lane Urban. This means students residing in Carriage Lane Urban will have easy access to an education without having to travel across the city.
