Based in Guelph, Ontario, Granite Homes is an award-winning developer that has built a number of desirable communities throughout Southwestern Ontario. Its latest project brings it to amenity-rich Kitchener where it will soon launch an exclusive townhome community called Doon West.

When the sales centre opens to the public on Saturday, November 4th, Doon West will offer a sophisticated collection of townhomes with contemporary exteriors clad in brick, stone and wood accents. Dark-trimmed front entryway and garage doors add a modern touch, while large windows ensure interior living spaces have plenty of natural light. Inside, the homes range in size from 1,500 square feet to 1,900 square feet and boast spacious kitchens, three bedrooms and two and half baths.

Traditionally, when someone walks into a sales centre for a new construction development, they’re presented with two-dimensional floor plans, renderings and images. For many people it is very difficult to visualize what a space or finishes will look like without a proper model home. However, model homes aren’t generally available at the beginning of a new community.


As part of the sales launch at Doon West, Granite Homes has partnered with LandMark VR to offer a virtual reality (VR) tour of a full model suite in advance of the on-site model home which is currently under construction. Using the latest VR headset technology, users will be able to physically explore the home room by room and interact with the features and finishes for a fully immersive experience.

“Granite Homes aims to be at the forefront of technology when it comes to home tours,” says Sandra Aveiro, Sales and Marketing Manager at Granite Homes. “Our sales centre offers visitors a complete virtual experience of our model home, delivering an unmatched purchasing experience for our prospective buyers.”

While Doon West is the launch site for Granite Homes’ new VR experience, the builder plans to use this innovative approach and state-of-the-art technology in future communities.
