With the New Year just around the corner we’d like take this opportunity to look back on some of the highlights of 2015.
Centretown’s Hottest Condominium – Richcraft Bowery Project is now under construction in Ottawa’s Centretown area and now on the 12th floor. Condominium living with a New York vibe, we are building in a place where the atmosphere is buzzing and everything you need is on your doorstep!
The Sky’s the Limit – This year we received approval to build Ottawa’s tallest building by Dows Lake. Our Sky development will include a 55-storey tower, along with a 45-storey and 18-storey tower creating luxurious living with an incredible view all year round.
We are Live online – 2015 saw the launch of our new website. This website now means that you can sit back and explore every building from the comfort of your current abode. Just move around the site and read about Richcraft communities and take virtual tours of our beautiful homes.
Trailsedge Phase 2- Trailsedge Phase II site servicing started in early 2015 with the single family homes construction starting in June. Our first delivery was on November 16th, . Townhome construction started in September with our first occupancy taking place on January 27th, 2016. Street lights are now and the park construction is slated to start in the spring.
Bank Street Glow Fair – Richcraft was right at the heart of Glow Fair this year with our BOWERY Presentation Centre hosting the Glow Fair VIP Lounge. The annual Glow Fair event was a great success! Sidewalks come alive with activities, lights and music and, of course, our BOWERY BICYCLE was there to offer tasty frozen treats to party goers.
Riverside South Summerfest – We hosted a day to remember at the location of one of our most vibrant communities – Riverside South. Rickshaw Rides, pizza, coffee, bouncy castles, crafts and carnival activities set the scene for a tour of 27 beautifully decorated model.
Brewer Park Pond – We were proud to sponsor the project to reconnect the Brewer Park Pond to the Ottawa River. The aim of the project was to improve spawning, and provide a nursery, rearing and feeding habitat for the local fish community in the Rideau all year round.
Peace Park- A moving candlelit ceremony marked the opening of the Stittsville Rotary Club Peace Park, a project sponsored by Richcraft. In partnership with City of Ottawa’s Better Neighbourhoods Program, this park includes a stone labyrinth at the centre as a place for the community to centre themselves. A calm place for a Stittsville community.
GOHBA Winner – We were giddy with excitement when our luxury, bright and spacious Boundary model home won the Production Homes: Attached (2,000 sq. ft. or less) at the prestigious GOHBA’s awards this year.
Introducing Richcraft Rentals – In 2015 we introduced Richcraft Rentals to our portfolio. Now anyone can enjoy the luxury of a Richcraft home without the need to buy a place of your own.
Trees of Hope – Every year the Chateau Laurier comes alive in November through to January with Christmas trees decorated by local businesses. The Richcraft team decked the halls in aid of CHEO. This year’s theme was Christmas Royalty with theme colors of purple & gold.
