800-home community in Oshawa has green ambitions

Monday, June 21, 2021

The Heights of Harmony, in the Kedron neighbourhood of North Oshawa, will bring a mix of townhomes and single-family dwellings to Ontario’s fastest-growing city by 2023.

With the recent launch of Minto Communities GTA’s 90-acre community comes plans for  wellness-inspired residences connected to a brand-new 28-acre park, and the debut of what’s being called Modern Farmhouse architectural style—a country-inspired design.

After much interest in a net-zero upgrade from buyers at Minto’s Union Village community in Markham, the developer is offering the same package to single-family purchasers at Heights of Harmony in Oshawa. Net-zero homes can improve comfort, performance, and allow homes to create as much energy as they consume over a year, reducing emissions by up to 85 per cent.

The community will blend architectural styles and materials, and purchasers will have their pick of different sizes and designs, including French Country, Period Revival/Tudor, Craftsman, Canadiana, and the aforementioned Modern Farmhouse style.

Layouts are designed for flexible living—to suit every preference, stage of life and lifestyle. For instance, Interior features include ground-floor bedroom and bathroom options to support multi-generational families and aging-in-place. All homes will feature spacious backyards.


Lush green space will include sports fields, amenities that support active living for both children and pets, pathways to the neighbouring six-kilometre trail system, and a community pond within walking distance of homes.


A brand-new 28-acre park and pathways to a neighbouring six-kilometre trail system will connect residents to nature and year-round wellness amenities.

Homes will also come equipped with Minto Intelligence smart home system, featuring a smarter home water leak sensor, home video doorbell, home door lock and home outdoor camera.

Phase one floorplans will range from 1,992 to 3,049 square feet, with prices starting at the high $700’s.
