Quarry Park Community Background
More than 2200 home sites are planned in Quarry Park including a diverse mix of residences and single-family homes. In keeping with the European flavour of the community, several streets will feature brownstone style and stacked townhome units. The variety of housing types set against Quarry Park’s prime riverfront location and nature reserve, tree-lined boulevards and numerous parks all contribute to an enriched sense of community with strong architectural character. Homes will follow a French Countryside and Georgian theme with steep-pitched roof lines, brick facades, stone aprons and charming timbered accents.
Today, the 385 acre site has been transformed into a thriving mixed-use community. Many homes are occupied and a diverse range of styles are under construction. The Market at Quarry Park features a broad spectrum of retail and dining options including a full service Co-op. Once complete, Quarry Park will be home to more than 2200 residences, over four million square feet of office space, 140 acres of natural spaces and over 10 kilometres of paved paths.
