parkcity Buying locally has spawned movements such as the 100-mile diet, but when it comes to purchases bigger than your dinner, how do you know that you’re supporting businesses within your region? ParkCity has adopted a new philosophy that ensures the bulk of work done on the Burlington project comes from companies within a 100-mile radius of the site.

Though most condo projects hire local construction workers, this sustainability-based philosophy takes the commitment to local jobs and green living even further. Tobyn Park and its suppliers are integrating as many eco-friendly and cost saving features into the four-storey condo as possible and a significant amount of the development’s suppliers and materials are within the 100-mile range.

One of the environmentally friendly practices incorporated into the structure is geo-thermal heating and cooling, an underground system that doesn’t use any fossil fuels to keep your home toasty in winter and cool in summer.The electricity-saving system is also a space saver, meaning there’s more useable room in the building too.

The 100-mile philosophy ensures the overall carbon footprint of the project is reduced and that local manufacturers see more business from a new building coming to their backyard. For example, all consultants are based in Burlington including City Windows, Hansen Brick, Turkstra Lumber and Arriscraft stone panels.

The project is expected to be move-in ready by 2015. Available suites start from the $180,000s.
